America Resources Exploration Comments on State of Oil Sector and Gives Corporate Update

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - July 23, 2015) - America Resources Exploration, Inc. (AREN) ("America Resources" or "the Company") today provided comments to its shareholders regarding current oil prices and the effect on the Company and its drilling prospects.

Texas produces the greatest amount of oil of any State in the U.S. The EIA's April 2015 figures put its total production at roughly 3.71 million barrels of crude per day. While the rest of the US production experienced a year-over-year decline, Texas crude oil production increased 16% in May 2015 to 107 million barrels from 92 million barrels in May 2014, according the Texas Petro Index. The EIA also raised its forecasts for US oil consumption. "US gasoline demand will likely top 9 million bpd this year for the first time since 2007, which reflects record highway travel," said Adam Sieminski of EIA. The EIA further reported that WTI crude prices should average $55.51 per barrel this year, up from its previous forecast of $55.35. It maintained its 2016 forecasts for US prices to average $62.04 per barrel for WTI and $67.04 per barrel for Brent.

"The outlook for oil in the US appears much better than it was a few months ago, however there are still distressed assets available and we are using this opportunity to acquire properties at extremely attractive prices and close contracts with our service providers at much reduced price levels," stated Huang Yu, CEO of America Resources. "We continue to evaluate these future prospect properties in an effort to meet our expansion plans. Our team is working diligently to achieve our goal of reaching record revenues for the 2015 calendar year."
