PetroBakken Confirms January Dividend

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 15, 2013) - PetroBakken Energy Ltd.
("PetroBakken") (TSX:PBN) is pleased to announce that our cash dividend for
the month of January will be paid on February 15, 2013 to all PetroBakken
shareholders of record on January 31, 2013. The January dividend will be $0.08
per PetroBakken share. The ex-dividend date is January 29, 2013.

PetroBakken is pleased to provide two convenient cost-effective methods for
shareholders to increase their investment in PetroBakken. The Share Dividend
Plan ("SDP") is now available to most shareholders, enabling shareholders to
receive dividends in the form of common shares at a 5% discount to the average
market price. While similar to our Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP"), the
SDP has certain tax attributes which may be more attractive to some
shareholders. The DRIP remains available to Canadian shareholders, enabling
such shareholders to reinvest their monthly cash dividend to acquire
additional common shares at a 5% discount to the average market price. For
further information regarding our SDP and DRIP, please visit PetroBakken's
website at or contact Olympia Trust Company at
