CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/13 -- Alexander Energy Ltd. ("Alexander" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: ALX)

Alexander has perforated and tested its recently drilled Alexander 07-07-56-26W4 well in the Detrital oil zone. In the last 48 hours on test the well flowed at an average oil rate of 81 bbls/day (13 m3/day), with an average gas rate of 70 mcf/day (2 e3m3/day) and minimal water. The 07-07 well is the Company's seventh oil well producing from the Detrital zone. Alexander has a 79-per-cent working interest in the 07-07 well. The well will be tied in immediately depending on weather.

Also, Alexander has drilled and cased a second well at 12-12-56-27W4 as a potential Detrital oil well. Logs indicate three meters of oil pay. The 12-12 well will be completed and tested after spring breakup, and if successful tied-in. Alexander has a 94-per-cent working interest in the 12-12 well.

Forward-Looking Statements: All statements, other than statements of historical fact, set forth in this news release, including without limitation, assumptions and statements regarding the volumes and estimated value of the Company's proved and probable reserves, future production rates, exploration and development results, financial results, and future plans, operations and objectives of the Company are forward-looking statements that involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Some of these risks and uncertainties are beyond management's control, including but not limited to, the impact of general economic conditions, industry conditions, fluctuation of commodity prices, fluctuation of foreign exchange rates, environmental risks, industry competition, availability of qualified personnel and management, availability of materials, equipment and third party services, stock market volatility, timely and cost effective access to sufficient capital from internal and external sources. The reader is cautioned that assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although considered reasonable by the Company at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.

These assumptions and statements necessarily involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties inherent in the oil and gas industry such as geological, technical, drilling and processing problems and other risks and uncertainties, as well as the business risks discussed in Management's Discussion and Analysis of the Company under the heading "Business Risks". The Company does not undertake any obligation, except as required by applicable securities legislation, to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated using the conversion factor of 6 mcf (thousand cubic feet) of natural gas being equivalent to one barrel of oil. Boes may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf:1 bbl (barrel) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be misleading as an indication of value.
