Legend Oil and Gas Ltd. Permits Five New Locations

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - Legend Oil and Gas Ltd. (OTCQB: LOGL) ("Legend," the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has permitted five new drilling locations on the Patrick Collins Lease at its Piqua Kansas oil property. The wells, part of an overall 12 well development program, constitute the second tranche of drilling on the Pat Collins Lease. Legend holds a 100% working interest (87.5% Net Revenue Interest) on the parcel. Drilling is expected to commence within the next two weeks as wet weather subsides and Legend's drilling contractor becomes available.

Marshall Diamond-Goldberg, President of Legend Oil and Gas, Ltd., stated, "The Pat Collins Lease was always looked upon as a potential jewel on the Piqua Kansas property and the success of the first four wells on the 320 acre parcel certainly suggests that significant additional drilling is warranted. The first four wells have exceeded our expectations for production volumes. We have used the information from these recent wells to high grade this next group of development locations and have also enhanced the production battery by replacing the gun barrel (oil treatment vessel) and adding a larger oil production tank to handle the increased volumes. Current average production at Piqua exceeds 20 BOPD (barrels of oil per day) up from the 10-12 BOPD average previously."

Legend is also continuing with its ongoing program of enhanced recovery on its more mature leases through the planning and execution of its water flooding initiatives. The program has been successful in increasing production on the John Ellis lease and will be evaluated for expansion on the Orth/Gillespie lease as well.
