U.S. Oil and Gas plc

("the "Company")

Un-audited Interim Results for the six month period to 28 February 2010

U.S. Oil and Gas plc (PLUS: USOP), the oil and gas exploration company with exploration assets in Nye County, Nevada, announces its un-audited Interim Results for the six month period to 28 February 2010.

Chairman's Statement

The Company has changed its accounting reference date to 31 August and as such is pleased to report the interim results for the six months ended 28th February, 2010. The Company listed on the PLUS Markets on January 14, 2010. The Company has now completed a geophysical, gravity magnetic, geochemical and passive seismic survey of Eblana Phase I sect 1, 2 and 3 of its Hot Creek Valley Lease area. We are pleased to say the results confirm the presence of hydrocarbons anomalies showing three high potential well-drilling targets. There is a very high correlation between all available data sets and based on our analysis so far, we believe that we have now at least one classic normal structural hydrocarbon trap in terms of spatial consistency relative to size, shape and condition.

We will continue to refine the information to hand integrating it with other data sources and we have completed initial site preparation for the commencement of our first targeted drilling programme. 

Whilst we acknowledge the difficult challenge to balance the skills contributions of all board members, we will be in a position to confirm a new appointee to the board very shortly. The Company is now focusing on its funding requirements and will shortly announce details of its well drilling programme.

The following interim historical financial information on U.S. Oil and Gas Plc represents the Company's interim results for the 6 months ended 28 February 2010. The financial information (for which the Directors have accepted responsibility) is un-audited.

Expenditure on exploration activities is deferred on areas of interest until a reasonable

assessment can be determined of the existence or otherwise of economically recoverable reserves.

No amortisation has been charged in the period. The directors have reviewed the carrying value of

the exploration and evaluation expenditure and consider it to be fairly stated and not impaired at

28 February 2010. The recoverability of the exploration & evaluation assets is dependent on the

successful development or disposal of oil and gas in the Group's licence area.
