Chancellor Searches for New Leases

PAMPA, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Chancellor Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CHAG), a Texas-based oil producer, announced today that it has begun its search for new oil leases to replace those recently sold.

Chancellor Chairman Maxwell Grant said today, "We are very pleased to announce this new phase of our business following shareholder approval and the successful sale of most of our previous oil and gas properties for approximately $2 million.

"But the wells we sold were old and on long-standing leases.

"We have recently appointed as a consultant a highly-respected American geologist with an international reputation to help advise us on strategic purchases in America.

"Although we retain four producing wells and one disposal well in Texas and still hold an Operator's License with the Texas Railroad Commission, we intend to cast our net wider than Texas and take a serious look at American leases which are more current than the long-standing ones we previously had. We intend to investigate, with the advice of our geologist, leaseholds where there has been some recent activity or where activity is believed to be in the process of beginning to develop."
