Hinto Energy, Inc. Acquires Additional Wells and 4,400+ Acres

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Jul 2, 2013) -  HINTO ENERGY, INC. (OTCQB: HENI) is pleased announce the acquisition of a 100% working interest in 9 natural gas wells and approximately 4,400 gross leased acres in the Cisco Springs oil and gas field, in the Uintah Basin of Grand County, Utah from Pride Ventures. The company is planning to connect the gas wells of its other Cisco holdings into the newly acquired local gas gathering system, as soon as proper testing and evaluation is completed.

George Harris, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "We have been working to acquire this Cisco acreage for the past year. The property is adjacent to the Company's existing Cisco leases and increases holdings in the area to over 9,000 acres and 35 wells. The leases being acquired include a natural gas gathering system connected to a local pipeline that greatly simplifies collection and sale of natural gas from existing Company gas wells in the area. The recent rise of natural gas prices continues to make the production economics of shallow gas in the area attractive."

In addition to existing production and rework opportunities, the Company believes the leases acquired provide significant potential for drilling additional oil and gas wells. The Company will continue to look at opportunities to expand its lease holdings in the Greater Cisco area.

Hinto Energy, Inc. engages in the exploration, acquisition, and development of oil and gas properties. The company was formerly known as Garner Investments, Inc. and changed its name to Hinto Energy, Inc. in September 2011. The company was founded in 2011 and is based in Arvada, Colorado.
