RIMOUSKI, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 7, 2012) - Pétrolia (News - Market indicators) is pleased to announce that between mid-July and mid-October, the Bourque 1 drilling operation contributed $2.6 million to the Quebec economy. Of this amount, spinoffs in the Gaspé Peninsula totaled $1.2 million, accounting for nearly 45% of the expenditures in the province.

To construct Bourque 1, Pétrolia drew on the expertise of nearly fifty activity sectors in Quebec and the Gaspé Peninsula. Expenditures in the transportation sector alone totaled nearly $1 million.

Pétrolia would like to thank its Quebec partners for their contribution to this first drilling program, which will be followed by Bourque 2 and Haldimand 4.

Pétrolia is proud to have given priority to local businesses and hopes that the emergence of this new sector will significantly increase the spinoffs generated in Quebec, especially in the Gaspé Peninsula. "Exploration drilling should significantly contribute to the Quebec and Gaspé regional economy by drawing on local expertise whenever possible and by promoting its development to meet the growing needs of this new sector of our economy," says Isabelle Proulx, VP of Business Development.

Pétrolia has 66 645 750 shares issued and outstanding.
