29 May 2015 - U.S. Oil & Gas Plc.- Interim Results

U.S. Oil & Gas Plc.                              

("U.S. Oil" or the "Company")                         

Interim Results                                

U.S. Oil & Gas Plc (GXG London: USOP, OTC New York: USOPY), the oil and gas exploration company with assets in Nevada, is pleased to report its interim results for the six months ended 31 March 2015.

Corporate highlights:

GXG Markets restored trading in the Company's securities at 9.00 CET, Tuesday 26th of May 2015 after its suspension of 15 December 2014.  This action follows the completion by GXG Markets of its investigation and the findings of an
independent Due Diligence Report that confirmed that the Company had not misled the market.

The primary aim of the Company has been to negotiate a partnership that would allow it to develop  its Hot Creek Valley discovery by drilling further wells.  To this end the Company has continued its intensive promotional activities
within the industry.  Complex negotiations have taken place, and active engagement continues. The extraordinary industry turbulence of the last months and the negative impact of the GXG Markets suspension has undoubtedly affected the rate of progress in this regard.  However, the Board believes that, as a conventional oil play with low uplift costs, the project remains a highly attractive partnership proposition.

Financial highlights:

The suspension of trading in the Company's shares by GXG Markets exposed US Oil
and Gas to substantial  additional costs.  At the period-end the Company had
cash and cash-equivalents, excluding treasury shares, of US$271,521.

Operational highlights:

1.  A Composite 3D model of the Hot Creek Valley property based on the data acquired in 2014 and identifying the oil pools is now complete.

2.  A drill targeting study based on all available data is now complete.

        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 2015. 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.

About American Depositary Receipts (ADRs)
An ADR is a negotiable certificate that represents ownership in securities of a non U.S. company. ADRs are issued by a sponsoring U.S. bank and denominated in U.S. dollars. An ADR represents a specified number of shares (or one share) in
a foreign stock that is traded on a U.S. exchange.

ADRs allow foreign companies shares to be traded in a similar manner to shares in U.S. companies on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the American Stock Exchange (AMEX), NASDAQ and the over-the-counter (OTC) market. ADRs enable U.S.
citizens to acquire shares in a foreign company without the need for cross border or cross currency transactions. Any dividends and capital gains are in U.S. dollars.
