Victory Energy Moves Forward on Natural Gas Options

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - October 17, 2007) - Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announced today that the Corporation has satisfactorily completed the on-site due diligence of the five (5) options on the shallow gas wells located in the Adams Ranch, Adams-Baggett Canyon Sandstone gas field in Crockett County, Texas.

The Corporation's advisory team spent several days this past week performing an on-site inspection of the natural gas field located on the Adams Ranch approximately 25 miles south of Ozona, Texas. This was the last stage in the due diligence process. The team conducted an evaluation of existing producing wells and an inspection of the contiguous locations currently under option to the Corporation.

"This last step in the due-diligence process verifies the potential of the opportunity offered to Victory. The Corporation can now progress to close on the options and begin drilling later this year," stated Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.

The "Canyon Sandstone" gas wells located on this ranch are part of the large prolific Adams-Baggett Canyon Sandstone field. The Canyon Sandstone formation is found at a depth of 4,300 feet to 4,900 feet.

Victory will develop these options with an operator who has successfully drilled five (5) out of five (5) gas wells on leases offsetting Victory's acquisition. Average production for these wells is approximately 250,000 cubic feet of gas per day per well. Victory has a right of first refusal on five (5) additional options in this Canyon Sandstone field.

Each well drilled in the field has an estimated proven undeveloped reserve of 500 Million cubic feet of gas per well, giving a total of approximately 2.5 Billion cubic feet of natural gas of proven undeveloped reserves for the Corporation.
