Bateman Oil Field Paraffin Control Tests Indicate Total Oil Production Could Increase Over 2000 Barrels per Month

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 20, 2007) - USA Superior Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: USSU) (FRANKFURT: F2S), a Company focused on the application of new technologies to increase production in oil and gas wells, has recently begun a program of paraffin control and reduction developed and tested for the Bateman field.

Paraffin is detrimental to oil production. Paraffin can clog up the oil formation thereby reducing oil flow into the well bore and it clogs the pumps in the well bore causing excessive expenses. Prior to USA Superior Energy Holdings, Inc. acquiring the field, paraffin was not controlled and was allowed to buildup in the formation across the field.

Seven wells were treated for paraffin with a proprietary mixture of a solvent and paraffin mobilizer. Prior to the treatment, these wells had a 5 to 10 percent oil cut. Percentage of oil cut increased between 200 and 400 percent in the wells and there remained 200 percent more oil 4 weeks after the treatment. Payout of the cost of treatment of a well is less than 2 weeks. Now that a program of paraffin treatment has been developed and tested at the Bateman Field, treatment on the remaining 81 wells between the Bateman and Dale McBride Field can begin. USA Superior's field manager believes that field production can be over 2,000 barrels of oil per month after all the wells have been treated for paraffin control.

Oil prices per barrel are at their near historic highs. With oil above $85 a barrel, margins have increased significantly for the oil recovery and oil well enhancement business that USA Superior Energy Holdings, Inc. specializes in.

The company plans to provide additional updates on the Bateman Field, the Dale McBride field, the "Rust Lease" in Zavalla County, TX, the Shallow Benton project, and any additional lease projects in the near term.

USA Superior Energy Holdings, Inc. is a company with excellent potential focusing on applying new technologies to oil and gas fields as well as other industries. USA Superior is composed of a team of experts in their field, highly qualified with over 200 man-years of oil and gas field experience; from finding to drilling, well completion to operations and production, to problem solving, seasoned with success. Environmentally concerned and responsible, responsive to project needs and specializing in special projects, USA Superior Energy's focus has been on developing and utilizing complimentary technologies; Nitrogen (N2) and cased hole horizontal drilling. USA Superior will seek to use these technologies independently or in combination to exploit business opportunities.

Nitrogen (N2) is used to force oil out of reservoirs. It can be applied to existing reservoirs and wellbores, thus minimizing the risk of finding oil and gas. Cased Hole Horizontal Drilling (CHHD) is a new emerging technology that can significantly increase the "communication" from the wellbore to the fluids in the reservoir. With the current price environment, many existing marginal wells can be rejuvenated into very profitable wells.
