Mr. Everett Willard ("Will") Gray II, CEO of Doral Energy said; "I am pleased the Board of Directors approved this forward stock split.

About Doral Energy Corp.

Doral Energy Corp. (OTCBB:DEGY) is an oil and gas exploitation and production company headquartered in Midland, Texas.

The prolific Permian Basin of Texas and New Mexico is a geographic region of particular interest for the Company's future acquisition activity.
