American Eagle Energy Inc. Announces Bakken Project Updates.

BILLINGS, Mont., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- American Eagle Energy Inc. (OTCBB: AMZG; "American Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the following updates on its Williston Basin Bakken projects.

Hardy Field, SE Saskatchewan, Canada:

The Hardy 7-9 discovery well, in which the Company owns a 50% working interest, was returned to production on February 17, 2011 after replacing the rod string. The well is currently producing approximately 40 barrels of oil per day. Plans for drilling an offset well, the Hardy S 1A4-16-4B4-9-4-21W2, are proceeding with a spud date targeted for May, 2011. This will be the first development well on the Company's 4640 acre leasehold in the area.

Spyglass Project - Non-operated Drilling Plans, Divide County, North Dakota:

SM Energy Company spud the Bagley 4-30-163N-100W well, targeting the Three Forks Formation, on April 3, 2011. The well is designed to develop reserves in a 1,280 acre spacing unit comprising Sections 18 and 19 of that township. The Company owns a 3.125% working interest in the Bagley well and a 19% working interest in the spacing unit directly north of the well. The pace of development in the area has accelerated recently with the successful completion of several offset wells in T163N-R100W that have averaged over 500 BOPD each for their first 30-day production period. SM Energy is expected to drill at least three more wells in the area before year end in which American Eagle will own working interests ranging from 8% to 19%.

Spyglass Project - Operated Drilling Plans, Divide County, North Dakota:

The Company has begun work to obtain approval from state regulators for up to six 1280 acre spacing units with the objective of getting two operated Bakken or Three Forks Formation wells drilled prior to the end of 2011. These will be the first American Eagle operated wells in the 8,600 acre Spyglass Project.
