Treaty Energy Adds Another Lease in Tennessee

Company's Plan Is to Drill Up to 40 Oil Wells on Its Current Tennessee Leases and to Acquire Additional Leases to Expand Drilling Opportunities

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  Treaty Energy Corporation (OTCBB: TECO), a growth-oriented energy company in the oil and gas industry, today announced the addition of the COLEMAN CROUCH lease to its oil and gas lease properties in Pickett County Tennessee. This new lease is located across from the recently acquired HERBERT Q. GROCE lease.

The COLEMAN CROUCH lease covers 54 acres and previously had a productive well on the property until being shut years ago.

Treaty Energy currently has three wells at various stages of either completion or re-entry on its Tennessee leases. The Company's first well to strike oil in Tennessee was the ROBIN MOODY #1 well which was the subject of a June 10th news release. This well has been completed and has been tested using a gas powered motor drive to the pump jack. During testing the well produced pure oil with no water, and Treaty's operator estimates that this well will produce between 10 and 15 BRLS per day prior to possible chemical treatment of the well. Electrical power to the well has been "staked" and final installation of electrical awaits the power company's installation crew.

Treaty Energy plans to start drilling additional new wells on its Tennessee leases after completion of the three re-entry wells that have already been announced. With the two leases just acquired over the last couple weeks Treaty could expect to drill up to 40 new wells as reserves are proven up on each new well.

Andrew Reid, Chairman and CEO of Treaty Energy, stated, "I am very pleased to tell our shareholders that Treaty's Tennessee-based oil and gas leases are rapidly becoming revenue producing properties. It is becoming increasingly clear that our Tennessee properties have the potential to be quite substantial assets as our overall plan to put about 40 wells into production becomes a reality."
