American Oil & Gas Updates Fetter Field Niobrara Re-Completion Program

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - American Oil & Gas, Inc. (NYSE Amex: AEZ) announced that its Hageman 11-22 has been successfully re-completed in the Niobrara formation and produced approximately 50 barrels of oil and 180 mcf of natural gas, or 80 barrels of oil equivalent, per day during the previous 24 hour flow back period. The Hageman 11-22 well is the first well of a re-completion program expected to include four additional wells under the terms of a previously announced participation agreement at American's 53,000 gross (33,000 net) acre Fetter field project, located in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming.

Pat O'Brien, Chairman and CEO of American, stated, "We are pleased with the strong early performance of the Niobrara formation in our Hageman 11-22 well. The flow rates we are seeing are positive, especially when taking into consideration that this is a vertical completion. The Hageman 11-22 well represents the first time modern fracture stimulation methods have been preformed on a vertically drilled Niobrara formation in the field. Results to date support our interpretation that a number of formations in the field, including the Niobrara, have commercial potential in addition to the Frontier formation which has been the primary focus of our efforts to date. Preparations are underway to fracture stimulate the Niobrara formation in the Wallis 6-23 well, which is the second well in the program."
