Nitro Petroleum Incorporated Announces Major Re-Work of Hoco Oil Project in Okalahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2009) - Nitro Petroleum Incorporated (OTCBB:NTRO) is pleased to announce that it has received a Well Status Report from its engineering geologist related to Hoco Oil Project in Oklahoma. This project has several wells and Nitro Petroleum is the Operator on this entire project. The Report includes the following recommendations on the first three wells:

Ward/McNeil Well:

This well produces oil and gas from the Viola Lime formation. The Company will pump 2500 gallons of acid and flush this well with 1000 barrels of fresh water. This should increase production by several barrels a day for a nominal cost.

Mason Burns Well:

This well produces from the Bromide Sand. This well will be cleaned out and treated and is open for approximately 100 feet. This well also has production potential from the Viola Limestone formation, which is behind pipe and is a proven pay zone in this area of Oklahoma. Nitro is planning a large frac to penetrate this pay zone.

Teresa Well:

This well produces oil from the Viola Lime Formation. The Company plans on performing a major clean up and an acid frac on this well.

Larry Wise, President of Nitro Petroleum stated, " After these work overs are completed, we expect that Nitro will experience a significant increase in production from this project. This program should also provide higher net revunue to the company especially in light of oil prices increasing over the last two months".
