Gale Force Petroleum provides operations update - Starts Production at Wells Ranch Property

MONTREAL, Jul 26, 2011, 2011 -- Gale Force Petroleum Inc. (TSXV: GFP) ("Gale Force" or the "Company") today provided an operations update to report interim results from its planned US$2,000,000 development program (the "Development Program"), and announced that it has started production at its Wells Ranch property. Updates and details on the Wells Ranch property are available for viewing at:

"The start of production at Wells Ranch is the attainment of a major milestone for Gale Force Petroleum as the Company now has production on all of its seven properties", said Michael McLellan, Chairman and CEO. "We look forward to further production improvements as we work with our experienced technical team to complete the initial Development Program."

Gale Force Petroleum's technical team is led by its Chief Operating Officer, Emery Johnson, who is one of the Company's largest shareholders and has over 40 years experience, including having spent the last 10 years successfully building an oil production company in East Texas. Other members of the technical team are provided by IROMAD, a specialized oil and gas consultancy under a one-year mandate with the Company. A description of the services provided by IROMAD can be found below.


The primary objective of the US$2,000,000 Development Program is to increase total oil production for the Company to over 250 bbls per day, by achieving production increases of between 100 and 150 bbls per days resulting from workovers and facilities construction on six of the Company's properties, as summarized in the following table:

|Property | Owns|Plan Summary |Potential |Cost Estimate*|

|Wells Ranch|100% |Re-establish prior | 65 bbls| $1,100,000|

|TOTALS | |Increase Oil | 158 bbls| $2,000,000|
| | |Production from | | |
| | |Existing Properties| | |

*Note: The Company has a high level of confidence in total potential production increases of between 100 and 150 bbls resulting from the Development Program, as all proposed operations are to reactivate previous production at these levels. However, estimated production increases are not guaranteed, nor are the costs of the operations, as there are engineering, operational, business and other risks that may hamper these development plans.

Given the maturity of the Company's existing properties, once the production is re-established, the Company expects annual production decline rates of only 5% to 10%.

Secondary objectives of the Development Program include new leasing and performing field-wide studies of the Company's existing properties to locate additional Proved Undeveloped drilling locations, the goal being to build out the Company's reserves.

The Company now expects the Development Program to be completed in October, 2011.
