Hemisphere Energy Corporation Files its Reserve Reports

Vancouver BC, June 29, 2009. Hemisphere Energy Corporation (“Hemisphere Energy” or the “Company”) (TSXV: HME) announces that it has filed its reports related to oil and gas reserves for the year ended February 28, 2009 in accordance with Canadian Securities Regulators National Instrument 51-101 Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities (“NI 51-101”). These reports can be accessed electronically from the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com and include Form 51-101F1 – Statement of Reserves Data and Other Oil and Gas Information, Form 51-101F2 – Report on Reserves Data by Independent Qualified Reserves Evaluator, and Form 51-101F3 – Report of Management and Directors on Oil and Gas Disclosure.

As a result of better than anticipated well performance and the expansion of infrastructure in the Trutch area, Hemisphere Energy’s Proved plus Probable reserves increased by approximately 21 percent, to 38,800 barrels-of-oil-equivalent (boe) at February 28, 2009 from 32,100 boe at year-end February 29, 2008.

Hemisphere Energy is committed to building a strong and successful oil and gas company through its experienced management and directors, and will continue to grow its cash flow, production and reserves, while maintaining a low overhead.

The Company’s management and board view the market conditions as providing an excellent opportunity to aggressively pursue value-added acquisitions. Hemisphere Energy continues to evaluate numerous opportunities that complement its producing Trutch property in northeast British Columbia.

Note: A boe means barrel-of-oil-equivalent on the basis of 1 boe to 6,000 cubic feet of natural gas. Boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 1 boe for 6,000 cubic feet of natural gas is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
