CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 18, 2017) - Blackbird Energy Inc. ("Blackbird" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BBI) is pleased to provide an operations update regarding its previous completion programs, its planned fiscal 2017 / 2018 capital program at Pipestone and Stage Completions Inc.'s ("Stage") commercial roll-out, a company in which Blackbird owns a 10% minority interest. In late 2016 and early 2017, Blackbird drilled and completed its 102/2-20, 3-28 and 2-20/11-9 Pipestone wells (the "Wells") using the Stage Bowhead II fracturing system (the "Stage System"). The 102/2-20 well began production and clean-up on February 4, 2017 and was shut-in due to a third-party plant closure on February 12, 2017. After being shut-in for approximately 29 days, the 102/2-20 well resumed production and clean-up on March 13, 2017. During this secondary period of clean-up and the production of natural gas and condensate, in late April, 2017 it was determined that the 102/2-20 well was not producing at levels consistent with management's expectation. Thereafter, Blackbird performed a camera run within the wellbore in order to determine the reason for the 102/2-20 well's production level. After successful collet engagement and fracturing of the initial stages of the wellbore, the camera run indicated that erosion damage to the landing shoulder of the valve profile prevented proper collet engagement and full sleeve opening in the later stages of the wellbore. Subsequent to the 102/2-20 analysis, Blackbird performed a similar camera run in its 3-28 well, which has not yet been tied-in or production tested. The results of this camera run confirmed similar metal fatigue, erosion, collet engagement and sleeve opening issues as in the 102/2-20 well. With certain Stage System sleeves remaining in the closed position during pressure pumping operations Blackbird was unable to fracture the Montney reservoir across the entire lateral length of the wellbores. A camera run has not yet been performed on the 2-20/11-9 well; however, management believes that this well also experienced similar issues as the 102/2-20 and 3-28 wells. The 2-20/11-9 well has not yet been tied-in or production tested. Stage has advised Blackbird that the issues experienced in the 102/2-20 and 3-28 wells are isolated to the Generation 3 L80 114.3mm (4.5 inch) valve system. Further modeling by Stage has shown increased erosional effects on the sleeve at higher pump rates. Stage also advises that a recent frac stimulation performed by a third party, pumped at lower rates, has shown no erosional damage. Based on the information obtained from Blackbird's wells, Stage has advised Blackbird that a revised internal sleeve has been engineered using an enhanced 8620 carburized material and tungsten reinforced valve profile. The Stage System with this 8620 carburized material has been successfully utilized by third parties in numerous formations in North America. The 8620 carburized material is significantly more durable compared to the existing L80 material used in the collets and sleeves deployed in the Wells. Stage and Blackbird expect that this increased durability will significantly reduce any erosion of key components of the profile and allow for positive collet engagement and the successful opening of the sleeves throughout future wellbores. Blackbird has multiple options available to complete the unopened stages within the Wells. The large internal diameter of the Stage System provides the ability to both plug and perf or Abrasijet™ the unopened sleeves within the existing wellbores. The Company is currently establishing a budget for the completion of the unopened sleeves within the 102/2-20 and 3-28 wellbores. Blackbird plans to recomplete the Wells in a timely manner, with operations expected to commence in late June, 2017. Further examination will be conducted on the 2-20/11-9 well prior to conducting any further completion operations in its wellbore. Blackbird has a unique relationship with Stage which has been developed through its 10% ownership of Stage, and through being an early adopter of the Stage System. As a result of this unique relationship, Blackbird and Stage are in discussions regarding a cost sharing arrangement for the completion costs of the unopened stages of the Wells. Regardless of this unique relationship Blackbird has with Stage, all decisions within Blackbird will be made in the best interest of its shareholders. The Stage System is designed to increase expected ultimate recovery through high-tonnage and high-intensity completions, while at the same time reducing costs. As an early adopter, Blackbird has participated in the development and refinement of the Stage System. It is the Company's belief that it will achieve a competitive advantage through its continued use of the Stage System with the revised internal sleeve specifications. In April, 2017 Blackbird participated in the drilling of a non-operated 17.9% working interest well north of the Wapiti River at Pipestone. The well was spud from surface location 03-01-71-8W6 and drilled to a measured depth of approximately 5,350 meters, including a lateral of approximately 2,861 meters to a downhole location of 14-30 -70-7W6 (the "14-30 well"). This well penetrated two sections north of the Wapiti River which has been pooled with another operator. The 14-30 well was drilled into the Upper Montney with the primary objectives of land retention and further delineation north of the Wapiti River. The Company is also participating in the drilling and completion operations of two non-operated Middle Montney wells on its recently acquired south-eastern acreage. The first non-operated 37.5% working interest south-eastern well will be spud from surface location 04-02-70-6W6. The well is expected to be drilled to a measured depth of approximately 5,600 meters, including a lateral of approximately 3,100 meters to a downhole location of 13-04-70-6W6 (the "13-04 well"). The second non-operated 20% working interest south-eastern well will be spud from surface location 13-03-70-5W6. The well is expected to be drilled to a measured depth of approximately 5,500 meters, including a lateral of approximately 3,000 meters to a downhole location of 3-17-70-5W6 (the "3-17 well"). The 13-04 and 3-17 wells are expected to be drilled over the next six months, with the primary objectives of land retention and the continued delineation the Company's eastern acreage. Blackbird is in the final stages of preparing its capital budget for the remainder of fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018. On a preliminary basis, in addition to the non-operated wells discussed above, Blackbird is expecting to drill and complete an additional eight operated development wells on Blackbird's western acreage and three operated delineation wells on Blackbird's eastern acreage. The first two wells of this program are expected to be drilled on Blackbird's western acreage from its existing 14-14 pad. The first well, targeting the Upper Montney, is expected to be drilled to a measured depth of approximately 4,800 meters, including a lateral of approximately 2,100 meters to downhole location 02/6-26-70-7W6 (the "02/6-26"). The second well, also targeting the Upper Montney, is expected to be drilled to a measured depth of approximately 4,800 meters, including a lateral of approximately 2,100 meters to downhole location 8-27-70-7W6 (the "8-27 well"). The 02/6-26 and 8-27 wells are expected to be drilled in June / July 2017. Over the past couple months, the roll-out of the Stage System has accelerated. Sean Campbell, Director of Blackbird and Chief Executive Officer of Stage stated: "Since introduction of the Bowhead II Fracturing System, approximately 850 sleeves and collets have been successfully deployed in Canada, the continental United States and internationally. The issues experienced in the Blackbird wells are isolated to the Generation 3 4.5" system. Since the beginning of May, 2017, Stage has received orders for an additional 1,881 sleeves and collets of the Generation 4 system, confirming the full commercial roll-out by industry leading companies in the Montney, Marcellus, Eagle Ford, Bakken, Scoop / Stack, and Permian. Stage has also experienced market penetration internationally through orders from large state owned oil companies in the Middle East and China. Stage expects to see an additional 15 industry leading companies adopt Stage's technology over the coming months."

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 25, 2017) - Blackbird Energy Inc. ("Blackbird" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BBI) is pleased to provide an operational update regarding its 2017 delineation and development program and expansion of the Eastern Pipestone/Elmworth Gathering System ("Eastern Gathering System"). Blackbird is also pleased to announce that it has increased its Montney rights in the Pipestone/Elmworth corridor to 125 gross sections (108.9 net sections). We are pleased to provide the status and timeline for the drilling and completion of three development wells and one delineation well on our northern multi-interval land block. The previously announced 02/6-26-70-7 Upper Montney well was spud on June 10, 2017 from surface location 14-14-70-7W6 and drilled to a measured depth of 4,808 meters, including an approximately 2,100 meter lateral section. The well was drilled for approximately $2.6 million. Completion operations are scheduled for August 12, 2017 utilizing the STAGE Generation Four 8620 Sleeve System. The completion program will place approximately 75 tonnes of sand per stage over approximately 52 stages. Blackbird plans to tie-in and flow-test the well into existing infrastructure, with initial production anticipated by late August, 2017. The 2-28-70-7 Middle Montney well was spud on July 11, 2017 from surface location 11-15-70-7 W6. Currently the well is being drilled in the lateral section and the planned measured depth is 5,004 meters, including an approximately 2,050 meter lateral section. Completion operations are scheduled for August 26, 2017 utilizing the STAGE Generation Four 8620 Sleeve System. The completion program will place approximately 75 tonnes of sand per stage over approximately 52 stages. Following completion, the well will be tied in and flow-tested into existing infrastructure, with initial production anticipated by September, 2017. The 1-20-70-7 Upper Montney well is expected to be spud the first week of August from surface location 10-8-70-7W6. The well has a planned measured depth of 4,600 meters, including an approximately 2,000 meter lateral section. Completion operations are scheduled for the first week of October utilizing the STAGE Generation Four 8620 Sleeve System. The completion program will place approximately 75 tonnes of sand per stage over approximately 51 stages. Blackbird plans to tie-in and flow-test the well into existing infrastructure, with initial production anticipated by late October, 2017 The 7-27-71-7 Upper Montney delineation well is expected to be spud at the end of August from surface location 7-33-71-7W6. The well has a planned measured depth of 4,500 meters, including an approximately 2,000 meter lateral section. Completion operations are scheduled for the latter portion of October utilizing the STAGE Generation Four 8620 Sleeve System. The completion program will place approximately 75 tonnes of sand per stage over approximately 51 stages. This well targets the Upper Montney at Pipestone/Elmworth and will test and delineate the "Volatile Oil" window on the northern portion of Blackbird's land. This well is an approximate 10 km northern step-out from Blackbird's existing operated wells and is important both for the continued delineation of the "Volatile Oil" window as well as continuing a significant portion of Blackbird's northern multi-interval land block. The well will be flow-tested post completion to evaluate productive capability and reservoir quality. Blackbird has participated in the drilling and completion operations of three (.75 net) non-operated delineation wells. The 14- 30-70-7 Upper Montney well in which Blackbird has a 17.9% working interest is located north of the Wapiti and has been drilled, completed and initial production tested. This well delineates the "Volatile Oil" window on the western edge of Blackbird's lands and also retains one section of Blackbird's land that was in near term expiry. The well was drilled to a total measured depth of 5,350 meters and a lateral length of 2,861 meters. The 13-04-70-6 and the 3-17-70-5 Middle Montney wells, in which Blackbird has a 37.5% and 20% working interest, respectively, are located south of the Wapiti and have both been drilled and completed. Both wells will further delineate the "Volatile Oil" window and also will allow for the retention of Blackbird's southeastern lands. The 13-04-70-6 well was drilled to a total measured depth of 5,615 meters and a lateral length of 3,056 meters and the 3-17-70-5 well was drilled to a total measured depth of 5,320 meters and a lateral length of 2,876 meters. The 02/2-20-70-7 Upper Montney well was successfully refrac'd in mid-June using plug and perf and diverter agents. The completion consisted of 33 intervals at 30 meters spacing and approximately 1,650 tonnes of sand was placed. Tubing was installed July 16, 2017 and the well is tied in and is in clean-up phase with a projected IP30 date of early September. The 15-21-70-7 Upper Montney well is scheduled to be refrac'd in late August in conjunction with the 2-28-70-7 Middle Montney well. The Company is evaluating two completions options, being either pin-point or plug and perf. The planned completion program will be to place approximately 2,700 tonnes of sand in the refrac. The 2-20-70-6 Middle Montney well is scheduled to be refrac'd in the middle of September. The Company is evaluating two completions options, being either pin-point or plug and perf. Management estimates that less than 20% of the well was completed during initial fracing operations. The 2-20-70-6 well produced approximately 395 bbls/d of light oil and 243 mcf/d gas during the last 24 hours of a 111-hour production test. This well confirms the presence of and extends the "Volatile Oil" window more than 5 km eastward from Blackbird's previous wells. This well is also important for the continuation of a portion of Blackbird's southeast land block and is planned to be tied in once the Eastern Gathering System is completed. Upon completion of Blackbird's initial 2017 development and delineation program, the Company will have a total of five Upper Montney wells and three Middle Montney wells on production, and five (2.75 net) wells behind pipe. These wells will span over four townships, with the 02/2-20-70-7 and 2-20-70-6 wells being approximately six sections apart on an east/west basis and the 7-27-71-7 and 2-20-70-6 wells being approximately eight sections apart on a north/south basis. This drilling program will delineate a large portion of Blackbird's contiguous land block. See Figure 1 below for an illustration of these well locations and Blackbird's planned future Eastern Gathering System. To view Figure 1: Blackbird's 13 Montney Wells and Planned Eastern Gathering System, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/bbi0725fig1.pdf. Blackbird has commenced surveying of its Eastern Gathering System. When completed the Eastern Gathering System will tie in production from our 2-20-70-6W6 (11-9 surface) well and serve as the backbone for tieing in all future development wells on Blackbird's eastern lands south of the Wapiti. Construction is expected to commence post regulatory approval with an estimated budget of $4.4 million. The Eastern Gathering System is anticipated to be brought on stream in the first half of 2018. The Pipestone/Elmworth Montney corridor continues to be one of the most actively drilled areas in Western Canada. Within two townships of Blackbird's land holdings, over 80 wells have been spud or rig released in the Montney since January 1, 2017 as illustrated with the wells highlighted in red in Figure 2 below. To view Figure 2: Industry drilling activity adjacent to Blackbird's holdings, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/bbi0725fig2.pdf. Garth Braun, Blackbird's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President stated: "Our 2017 delineation and development program continues to focus on building meaningful reserves, increasing the ability for our company to produce natural gas, oil and liquids and delineate the "Volatile Oil" window to complement the development block in the condensate window to the west. Our strategic delineation of the Upper and Middle Montney intervals over a large geographic area has provided us with very valuable information regarding our resource in-place, and solidifies our confidence in the next phase of Blackbird's growth. We will continue our delineation program and proceed into a development phase on our eastern development block. Through this development phase, we will look to increase production and reserves while maximizing the value in lockstep with our infrastructure buildup."

This press release includes reference to production information presented on a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") basis, with natural gas volumes converted at the ratio of six thousand cubic feet to one barrel of oil. BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of six mcf (six thousand cubic feet) to one bbl (one barrel) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead or the plant gate. Although the 6:1 conversion ratio is an accepted norm in the oil and gas industry, it is not reflective of price or market value differentials between product types. Based on current commodity prices, the value ratio between natural gas and oil is significantly different than the 6:1 ratio based on energy equivalency. Accordingly, a 6:1 conversion ratio may be misleading as an indication of value. THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE INC. HAS NEITHER APPROVED NOR DISAPPROVED THE CONTENTS OF THIS PRESS RELEASE.

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES Blackbird Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BBI) ("Blackbird" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding letter of nomination (the "Nomination") with a premier midstream company (the "Midstream Company") for the transportation and processing of natural gas and condensate produced from certain of Blackbird's Pipestone / Elmworth lands. Blackbird is also pleased to announce initial Pipestone / Elmworth production figures and team additions commensurate with Blackbird's growth plans. Non-Binding Nomination for 90 MMCF/D of Processing Capacity by 2021 The Nomination contemplates that the Midstream Company will transport Blackbird's natural gas and condensate produced from certain of its lands located both north and south of the Wapiti River to the Midstream Company's proposed gas plant (the "Plant") located south of the Wapiti River, where it will then be processed to market specification. Blackbird and the Midstream Company have agreed that they will work in good faith towards executing a binding gas handling agreement ("GHA") in the coming months. The GHA will be conditional on: (i) the Midstream Company sanctioning the construction of the Plant, (ii) the Midstream Company building a pipeline gathering and compression system from the Plant to certain of Blackbird's lands both north and south of the Wapiti River, and (iii) on Blackbird obtaining coinciding take-away service from the Plant. The natural gas processing volumes contemplated in the Nomination are as follows: Garth Braun, Blackbird's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President stated: "The Nomination secures material processing capacity for Blackbird and allows us to work towards a binding GHA with a premier Midstream Company. Upon execution of the GHA, Blackbird will have the ability to achieve significant production growth over the coming years. Blackbird will also continue to work diligently to access additional processing capacity in the near-term in order to achieve additional cash-flow and to accelerate our development plan moving forward." As previously announced, Blackbird achieved initial production from its Elmworth / Pipestone Montney asset on January 30, 2017. On and following January 30, 2017, Blackbird began to phase-in the production from its wells located at 05-26-070-07 W6M ("5-26"), 02-20-070-07 W6M ("2-20"), 02/2-20-070-07 W6M ("102/2-20"), and 06-26-070-07 W6M ("6-26") (the "Ramp-Up Period"). On February 13, 2017, the third party facility that processes Blackbird's natural gas was temporarily shut-down due to a mechanical failure. Due to this failure, Blackbird's Ramp-Up Period was suspended. The third party plant is expected to start-up again on approximately February 23, 2017, at which time Blackbird will resume the Ramp-Up Period. Blackbird has limited production data available for its wells on an individual basis because each well was flowing for a varying number of hours per day, each well was choked back to varying degrees per day and per hour, and all wells are still in varying degrees of clean-up. For these reasons, Blackbird believes that providing individual well data at this time would not be reflective of individual well performance over longer production periods. Blackbird will provide individual well performance at such time that IP30s, IP60s, and IP90s are obtained for each well. See Figure 1 below for an approximation of the number of hours that Blackbird's wells were flowing each day during the initial Ramp-Up Period. Figure 1 - Approximation of Flowing Hours and Days for Each Well Figure 2 below shows the natural gas and condensate produced each day up until the Ramp-Up Period was suspended. Blackbird's February 12, 2017 production was approximately 5.5 mmcf/d of natural gas plus 850 bbls/d of condensate/oil and 171 bbls/d of natural gas liquids, which totals approximately 1,938 boe/d (53% liquids). On the last day prior to suspension of the Ramp-Up Period, H2S levels were at approximately 5.5%, which is under Blackbird's contracted amount of 6.0%. Garth Braun added: "The production achieved during the initial Ramp-Up Period is in-line with our internal expectations, as we believe it will take at least one month to normalize the production of our wells and the operation of our battery and pipeline gathering system. Based on the production achieved during the Ramp-Up Period, it is Blackbird's expectation that the productive capability of the four wells which were produced during the Ramp-Up Period will meet and/or exceed our current processing and take-away capacity. With an average condensate gas ratio during the Ramp-Up Period of approximately 187 bbls/mmcf plus natural gas liquids of approximately 31 bbls/mmcf (for total liquids of 218 bbls/mmcf), we are encouraged by the liquids rates seen during the Ramp-Up Period. We are equally encouraged by the H2S levels, which were at approximately 5.5% on the last day of production. Blackbird looks forward to providing longer-duration production data as soon as it becomes available. With confirmation of liquids content, H2S levels and overall productivity during the Ramp-Up Period, Blackbird has entered into the Nomination and secured the volumes required for growth. We will now work with the Midstream Company to finalize the GHA for the benefit of both parties." Blackbird has hired two key team members to support its long-term business plan. In December, 2016 Blackbird hired Paul Goodman as the Company's Manager, Completions and Production. Paul has over 28 years of experience in stimulation and completions focused on unconventional resource plays. Paul was previously responsible for multi-pad completions programs and the business line aspect of fracturing operations targeting unconventional reservoirs in the Alberta Montney. Paul has been part of teams at Encana, Sanjel and Halliburton. In February, 2017 Blackbird hired David Mills as the Company's Manager, Facilities Engineering. David is a Professional Engineer with over thirty years of varied oil and gas experience. Prior to joining Blackbird, David was responsible for the design, construction and start-up of Mosaic Energy's Kakwa / Jayar 50 mmscf/d sour and liquid stabilization gas plant, gathering system, and wellhead facilities. Prior to Mosaic Energy, David was responsible for the design, construction, start-up and expansion of Crew Energy's Septimus 60 mmscf/d sweet gas plant, gas gathering system and wellhead facilities. Prior to these companies, David held senior positions with Canetic Resources, ConocoPhillips, Imperial Oil and Qatar Liquefied Gas Company. Garth Braun stated: "Paul and David are key additions for Blackbird as we enter the next phase of our development. Paul's expertise in completions will allow Blackbird to execute on large-scale, multi-well pad completion programs while reducing completions costs and maximizing expected ultimate recovery. David's expertise will be invaluable as we expand our pipeline gathering system and infrastructure facilities both north and south of the Wapiti River, thereby unlocking the potential of Blackbird's Pipestone / Elmworth asset."

Agency: European Commission | Branch: FP7 | Program: CP | Phase: ICT-2007.2.2 | Award Amount: 25.84M | Year: 2009

The European robotics industry plays a key role in maintaining our continents industrial base. The robotics industry is strong, but fragmented and dispersed. In the future, cutting-edge technology resulting from top-level research will be the decisive factor for success. Europe not only has a powerful robotics industry, but can also boast superb research. By drawing on these resources, ECHORD aims at producing new knowledge through advancing the state of the art in selected research foci and developing novel technology from which new products can be derived. Within ECHORD, opportunities for knowledge advancement and technology transfer between academia and industry will be created across the whole continent. This will be achieved through the solicitation of focused, small-size RTD projects, so-called experiments, which can be rapidly negotiated, funded and executed. Via these experiments, ECHORD will bring about a large-scale introduction of robotic equipment into research institutions. This is expected to result in both tangible and measurable out-comes in terms of the accelerated development of technologies, as well as the deployment of robotics technology into new scenarios for the direct application of research results. For ECHORD, three such scenarios have been defined: human-robot co-working, hyper flexible cells, and cognitive factories. The foremost purpose of the scenarios is to define an environment that is both scientifically challenging to research institutions and commercially relevant to robot manufacturers.
