Victory Energy Continues to Drill in Permian Basin

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announces that the Corporation has set surface pipe on its tenth well in the Canyon Sandstone gas play located in the Texas Permian Basin. This well is on schedule to reach total depth and final completion, and it is anticipated to be as productive as the other nine wells. The well is scheduled to reach total depth on or before May 7. When it meets its target milestones, production will begin by May 31. Revenue should flow into the Corporation by August 1.

The drilling contractor drilling well #166-7 has set surface casing at 1,040 feet to protect all shallow water zones as required by the Texas Railroad Commission. Surface casing was cemented into place and then allowed twenty-four hours to harden before drilling continued. The latest morning report indicates the rig is drilling at a depth of 2,815 feet.

Production tubing was run on wells #166-8 and #166-3, while swabbing continues to recover the stimulation fluid pumped into the wells to fracture the target zone enhancing gas production. Crews have laid the gas transmission line to the main gas gathering line, which allows gas to be delivered to market.

"We are pleased that we continue to meet our goal of drilling two wells per month. This well is consistent with our strategy of becoming a significant and viable source of natural gas for the Texas area," stated Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.

This well, and each Canyon Sandstone gas well in this field, will produce approximately 500,000,000 cubic feet of gas for Victory over a 35-year average production life. A 5,000-foot deep Canyon Sandstone well initially tests at an average of 250,000 cubic feet of gas per day.
