AUSTIN, Texas, November 16, 2010 - FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE Amex: FPP) announced today that it

FieldPoint's share of the first proposed well under an operating agreement
with Cimarex to drill two wells that will target the Bone Spring formation in
township 19 section 15, in Lea County, New Mexico. The proposal includes
drilling two horizontal wells and if successful there is the possibility to
drill an additional well in section 15.

well is proposed to be approximately 14,000 plus feet. The time that drilling
will begin is totally at the discretion of Cimarex, but FieldPoint is hopeful
that drilling will begin within approximately 60 days.

oil per day, but this is not an indication of what the proposed wells will

FieldPoint will own a 43.75% working interest in the proposed wells.
Cimarex will own 37.5% and other partners will own the remaining 18.75%.
