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 403-668-8887,
