Maverick Energy Group Announces Third Quarter 2008 Revenues of $3,466,956

Long-Term Debt Cut Nearly in Half While Cash Reserves More Than Double

TULSA, OK--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) - Maverick Energy Group, LTD (PINKSHEETS: MKGP) is pleased to announce operating results for third quarter of fiscal year 2008, ending September 30, 2008.

Maverick's revenues for the three-month period were $3,466,956, a decrease from the previous quarter's revenues of $5,928,734. The decrease was primarily due to a temporary slowdown in drilling operations in the Big Foot Field in Texas due to Z2's temporary focus on restructuring its debt. As a member of Z2, we encouraged this process. At the same time, the company was successful in lowering its long-term debt from $214,080 in the third quarter of 2007 to $120,901 in the third quarter of 2008, representing a reduction of approximately 43 percent. Maverick also increased its cash reserves by over $250,000 in the past year, going from $502,691 at the end of the third quarter of 2007 to $789,485 at the end of the third quarter of 2008.

"Maverick is in a very strong position for continued growth. Although the third quarter numbers reflect a one-time decrease in revenues and profitability, we find ourselves in a very positive cash position that should prove extremely beneficial as we continue our push into attractive low-risk, high-reward drilling programs. It is important to note that although we never like interrupting our stellar pattern of progressively higher revenues and earnings, we determined that by taking advantage of the current economic conditions to renegotiate our debt, we have emerged an even stronger company than we were just six months ago. We anticipate leveraging this strength into furthering our existing drilling operations as well as examining our options for both short and long-term expansion and growth of the company. These developments should make for a very exciting time for Maverick Energy and its shareholders," says Jim McCabe, CEO of Maverick Energy Group, LTD.
