Having just recently announced that has entered into an earnest money contract to acquire 150 BOPD production in a 50% joint venture with Bowie Energy, Platina Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PLTG) should have investors watching this company closely.

Early this morning, the company, a fast growing E & P Company, issued a press release announcing that it has entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire a 63-mile pipeline in Texas, including 6 producing wells with cumulative total of 50 barrels of oil and 450 thousand cubic feet of natural gas per day. The transaction is subject to agreement finalization and bank financing. Closing is expected in November. Platina will retain 50% of the acquisition and act as project manager.

Great news for PTLG! Platina's President, Blair Merriam, stated, "This acquisition complements the shallow oil production recently acquired in East Texas. These wells are deeper Smackover formations that historically have produced several billion cubic feet of gas each. In addition to key drilling locations we'll own the only gas transmission pipeline for the area. This acquisition sets the stage for substantial growth in the four county areas between Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana."

Before the news was released, the stock closed Monday at Twenty Five cents a share.
