21 October, 2009 - US Oil and Gas plc - U.S. OIL and GAS plc announces intention to float on the PLUS Markets.

Dublin, Ireland, 21st October 2009

U.S. Oil & Gas plc, an oil and gas exploration company, has announced its intention to float on London’s Plus Market Exchange in early November 2009.

SVS Securities plc has been appointed as corporate advisor and broker to the company.

U.S. Oil & Gas plc is an oil exploration company, which has acquired the entire share capital of US-based oil and gas company Major Oil International LLC. The primary assets of Major OIL International LLC are leases covering 19 sq. km of land in Hot Creek Valley, Nye County, Nevada.

"Of all the United States’ oil-bearing regions, Nevada is one of the least exploited,” says Brian McDonnell, U.S. Oil & Gas’ CEO. “Geologists believe one 250 sq mile area alone holds 31 billion barrels of oil. Large finds have already been made – the Covenant field has yielded over a billion barrels.’’

The company has already carried out Well Log Analysis, Gravity Magnetic Surveying and the interpretation of available 2D seismic data.

Brian McDonnell says, ‘We are delighted to be seeking a listing on PLUS Markets, as we look to build on the promising results of our exploration to date. Seismic, well and geophysical studies will be followed by a targeted drilling programme.’
