U.S. OIL and GAS plc's (Ticker: USOP) core activities are in the USA, with ongoing exploration activity in Nevada where the company holds a large lease acreage.

15 August 2012 - Unaudited Interim Results for the six month period to 31 March 2012

U.S. Oil and Gas Plc ("US Oil" or "the Company")

Unaudited Interim Results for the six month period to 31 March 2012
                                                      
U.S Oil and Gas Plc (GXG: USOP), the oil and gas exploration company with exploration assets in Nevada, announces its unaudited Interim Results for the six month period to 31 March 2012.

Chairman's Statement

As previously announced, in 2011 the Company completed the acquisition of data over its original lease area, identifying at least ten drilling targets raising $7.35M to finance the first stage of its development programme.

A Competent Person's Report (CPR) from independent petroleum consultants Forrest A. Garb & Associates, Inc.
(FGA) was prepared from data related to US Oil's original (pre-December 2011) lease area at Hot Creek Valley.
Best Estimate (50% probability based on SPE-PRMS) of Gross Prospective Resources was 189 Million Stock Tank
Barrels (MMSTB)  with recoverable oil estimated at 67 MMSTB.

Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Major Oil International LLC, the Company successfully bid for an additional seven leases from the Bureau of Land Management bringing the total lease area under its control to 88 Sq KM.

During the six months to 31 March 2012 the Company was admitted to trading on the OTC platform operated by
the GXG Markets UK. It also completed and cased its first well, Eblana #1.  Preparations for drilling a follow up appraisal well, Eblana #2, were also completed,

During the six month period, Other Income amounted to $18,111 (2011:$570)from interest received.
Administrative Expenses were $576k (2011:$157k). The increase in costs are mainly due to one-off costs
associated with the suspension on PLUS Markets on August 23rd 2011. Other operational costs increased in line
with drilling operations on the first well. Cash and Cash Equivalents amounted to $5,269k (2011: $289k) on 31
March 2012.

In June 2012, US Oil announced the first discovery of light sweet crude in Nevada for over 30 years when the
company drilled its first well, Eblana #1,  to a total depth of 8,550 feet. At least nine large potential oil
reservoir intervals and associated high fracture zones were encountered with good porosity and hydrocarbon
shows from multiple reservoir intervals.

Subsequent advanced well-log processing and interpretation have now been completed  and production zones for
perforation and testing have now been identified for flow testing. The downhole  programme and its schedule
has been agreed with the workover contractor.

In a recent announcement dated 13 August 2012, the Company has confirmed the production testing programme for
its Eblana #1 well is expected to commence on 4 September 2012.

The planned work programme through December 2012 will comprise Phase I - the workover programme on Eblana #1,
testing and production, the collection of data on the entire lease acreage, completion of the next
development well and possible further appraisal wells, and the finalisation of the conceptual development
plan.  We will follow with Phase II - the implementation of the "Master Development Programme."
The Board believe that the additional funding raised on 26 July 2012 of circa $1.4M together with the
existing cash reserves provides sufficient funding to complete Phase I.

Finally, the Board would like to acknowledge the contribution to the development of the Company of our former
Chairman, Mr. Jimmy Guiry, who died on 6 January 2012.

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
assets and consider it to be fairly stated and not impaired at 31 March 2011. The recoverability of the
exploration and evaluation assets is dependent on the successful development or disposal of oil and gas in
the Group's licence area.
