FieldPoint Petroleum Provides Update

AUSTIN, Texas, July 27 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

             Drilling project with Cimarex Energy to begin this fall.

    FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE Amex: FPP) today provided an

update of its 2010 operations. As previously announced, FieldPoint and

Cimarex Energy Co. (NYSE: XEC) are partnering to drill two wells that will

target the Bone Spring formation in section 15 of the East Lusk Federal field

in Lea County, New Mexico. Drilling of the first of these wells is expected

to begin this fall as planned, possibly early in the fourth quarter.

FieldPoint will own a 43.75% working interest, Cimarex will own a 37.5%

working interest, and other partners will own the remaining 18.75% working

interest in the two wells.

    During the first quarter of 2010, both Revenues and Net Income increased

dramatically over the same period last year. Ray Reaves, President and CEO of

FieldPoint commented, "Favorable market conditions have continued through the

second quarter and we are very pleased with our performance year to date. As

a result of this, and our strong balance sheets, we are able to go forward

with an aggressive growth program. I feel doubly fortunate that we are also

in a position to continue a program to buy back FPP shares, which creates

additional shareholder value."

    Mr. Reaves added, "The remainder of 2010 will be an exciting and highly

important time for FieldPoint. Participation in our first horizontal drilling

operation, with such a stellar partner as Cimarex, will be a milestone in

itself. If market conditions continue to be favorable, as it appears they

might, this could be a banner year for us in terms of both financial

performance and growth."

    FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation is engaged in oil and gas exploration,

production and acquisition, primarily in Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma,

Texas and Wyoming.
