Operations Update: Eblana #1

U.S.  Oil  &  Gas  plc (GXG: USOP), an oil and gas exploration company focused on Nevada, USA,  is  pleased  to announce that the Eblana #1 exploration well, currently being drilled by its wholly owned subsidiary Major  Oil International LLC, reached its Target Depth of 8,550 feet on 26th May 2012 at 19.05 hours PST.   The  well  has been successfully cased and cemented.

During  the  drill,  more than 1,000 feet of cumulative net oil and gas pay potential zones  were  encountered. Reservoir  quality  appears  excellent with good porosities ranging from 14% to 28%  and  with  high  permeable fracture  zones associated with high gas peaks up to 1600 units (C1 to C3).  At intervals from  2,900  feet  to 8,550  feet,  within  Valley  Fill sedimentary rock down to Tertiary Volcanic Ash porous  zones,  a  number  of additional potential reservoir zones have been identified.

Initial  interpretation  of  downhole well logs confirm all of the hydrocarbon shows  and  reservoir  intervals previously recorded while drilling.

The  Company will shortly complete and finalize the well logs processing and interpretation, which will  enable it to identify potential production test zones in preparation for perforation and production flow testing.

Completion  tests  on the potential zones of interest through 2 7/8' production tubing in place  downhole  will allow the Company to run a series of production test over the next few days.
