AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - December 7, 2009) - United States Oil & Gas Corporation (PINKSHEETS: USOG), a growing oil and gas products, services and technology company, is pleased to announce that it has in place a preliminary agreement for the purchase of United Oil & Gas, Inc. ("United") of Bottineau, North Dakota. Under the terms of the agreement, which will go into effect January 1, 2010, and is subject to a number of conditions including the receipt by both parties of certain consents and releases, United will be a wholly owned operating subsidiary of USOG.

The purchase includes all property, equipment and six acres of developable land.
