Victory Energy Update on the Mesa Prospect

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 8, 2006 -- Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announced today that the Mesa Prospect, in Roosevelt County, New Mexico, has reached a depth of 6600 feet and is now drilling in the Canyon Reef zone. Victory Energy has a 2.5 % working interest and is participating in the prospect in a Joint Venture with Eldorado Exploration.

The well will be drilled to approximately 7100 feet in depth to test potential Canyon Sands zones and the Montoya Dolomite zone. The results of the well will be announced after drilling has reached total target depth and all potential productive zones have been logged and tested.

The potential reef play was identified using Passive Induced Polarization (PIP) and passive reflection seismology in combination with supportive subsurface geology. "PIP" is used to detect electrostatic signals given off by some geological anomalies. When combined with existing geological tools and current methodologies, the "PIP" process enhances the odds for a successful discovery.
