Platina Energy Group Reports Over $500 Million in Reserves

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - July 15, 2008) - Platina Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PLTG) (FRANKFURT: O5Y) releases independent reserve report data quantifying its holdings in Kentucky and Tennessee for net oil and gas reserves. According to the report, the specific net recoverable quantities are 1.85 million barrels of oil and 24BCF of natural gas. At present pricing, this represents a value well in excess of $500,000,000.00.

"This is probably the most significant news that the Company has ever released. Although we have other reserve report estimates on other fields that total another $100 or more million, this particular report is extremely conservative based on what we are recovering on the Kentucky field at the moment. We think that the actual reserves could be much higher, but it is too early to tell," stated Blair Merriam, President of Platina Energy Group.

Production in Kentucky continues to rise at a rapid rate as a result of the recent drilling activity.
