United American Petroleum Corp. Announces Results Of Completed Workover On Its Lozano Lease In Frio County, TX

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United American Petroleum Corp. (OTC Markets:UAPC) is pleased to announce it has completed the scheduled workover and acid stimulations to its Lozano lease in Frio County, Texas. Previously, the Lozano lease produced approximately 5 bbls of oil per day from its 3 existing wellbores. Currently, production from the Lozano lease has increased and stabilized at a rate of approximately 15 bbls of oil per day from the 3 existing wellbores. Workover and acid procedures on the Lozano lease were completed on budget at a total cost of approximately $70,000.

Newly appointed advisor Joe Gardner declared, "Through the dedicated efforts of our management team, I am pleased to report we have increased production on this location approximately three-fold with a nominal cost for the workover procedures. The normal life expectancy of these wells in their tertiary stage is approximately 5 to 10 years. Anticipated future plans for the Lozano lease include testing to develop any additional potential pay zone locations this property may have to offer. Typically, new drills in this area come in producing up to 100 bbls of oil per day, and our ability to exploit any new wells on the Lozano lease could yield additional returns further contributing to the Company's growth and success."

The noted workover activity, cost estimates and recent production increases on the Lozano lease are consistent with United's plans to workover approximately 150 well bores from various leases in its portfolio of properties.
