CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- Bayshore Petroleum Corp. ("Bayshore" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE: BSH) is pleased to announce it has entered into a 30 year agreement in Beijing with China Foreign Economic Cooperation Centre to license the catalytic upgrading technology to convert heavy oil into light oil in Canada. Bayshore will now commit using this technology to construct a 350 Barrel heavy oil facility in the Meota, Saskatchewan area. The signing of the agreement was presided by the chairman of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation, Mr. Li Yong Wu, a former minister of China Petroleum and Chemical Department and current independent director of PetroChina. Heavy oil currently produced in the Meota area will be processed directly into diesel-quality light oil as fuel products or as diluents. Both commodities are in high demand in the region. The pilot upgrader is expected to be in operation by late summer or early fall due to its simple design. More information related to this project will be released as the project progress.

Bayshore is a Calgary, Alberta based corporation engaged in the exploration, development and production of petroleum and natural gas. The Common Shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "BSH".
