Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. Signs Purchase Sale Agreement

'Expect to Increase Production From Acquired Prospect to 150 BOPD by End of 2014'

DUBLIN OH--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2014) - Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CEGX) announced that it has signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement to acquire the 385 acre Powers-Sanders Lease located in Shackelford County, Texas. The prospect is being purchased from Sabor X Energy Services, Inc. of Albany, Texas. The existing wells have been drilled to the Ellenberger formation, which has historically been a prolific formation in Shackelford County. There are a total of 5 wells on the prospect with 3 wells currently producing and 2 injection wells. The 3 wells are producing approximately 28 BOPD, which equates to 785 barrels per month.

Timothy Crawford, CEO of Cardinal Energy, stated, "We will rework the 3 producing wells to increase their production and then we will perforate the other zones in the formation behind pipe and comingle the production. It is estimated that we can drill and complete an additional 14 development wells on the prospect. We are thrilled by this acquisition as it adds to our existing acreage and production we currently have with the Dawson-Conway Lease, which consists of 41 wells and 618 acres and is also located in Shackelford County. We believe the Powers-Sanders prospect will boost shareholder value by increasing Company revenue over the course of this year as we expect to increase production on this lease to 150 BOPD before the end of 2014."

Any statements that are not historical facts and that express, or involve discussions as to, expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, indicated through the use of words or phrases such as "will likely result," "are expected to," "will continue," "is anticipated," "estimated," "intends," "plans," "believes" and "projects") may be forward-looking and may involve estimates and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements.

About Cardinal Energy Group, Inc.
Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. is a U.S producer of oil and natural gas within the United States. The Company is based in Dublin, Ohio. Cardinal focuses on known formations that have significant proven reserves remaining that can be produced economically. Cardinal targets fields with wells that may need remediation due to neglect or undercapitalization. We select prospects that offer a strong up-side for production. The upside we seek in a prospect is twofold -- it must have the potential to be restarted or have its current production increased using newer technology and remediation methods and; it must also have additional lease acreage which can be further developed by completing development wells adjacent to existing producing wells. Cardinal exploits these undervalued assets by acquiring a majority working interest in the prospect and then applies the Company's calculated development plan. Cardinal also seeks acquisitions of over-leveraged companies when there is a clear upside from their purchase based on strong commodity prices. The Company operates throughout the Continental United States. More information on Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. is available at www.cegx.us.
