Rockdale Resources Corporation Announces the Successful Drilling of Three New Oil Wells

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - March 27, 2014) - Rockdale Resources Corporation (OTCQB: BBLS), an Austin, Texas-based oil production and exploration and drilling company, announced today the successful drilling of three new oil wells on the Company's existing 623 acre lease in the Minerva-Rockdale Field; located approximately 50 miles northeast of Austin.

The Company has recently raised new equity capital in connection with its previously announced private placement of the company's common stock. Some of the uses of proceeds from this equity financing were utilized for this immediate drilling of additional oil wells on the Company's current lease.

"We are excited to announce the successful drilling of our first three new oil wells with our recently raised new equity," stated Marc S. Spezialy, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Spezialy further noted, "The electric logs show a promising productive zone similar to the wells drilled in June and August 2013; and we look forward to updating the shareholders again once we are able to quantify the increase in oil production that these three new wells will contribute to the Company's overall oil production."

Upon the initiation of production of these three oil wells, the Company will have a total of 7 producing oil wells which were drilled under the supervision of the Company's current leadership. The Company plans to drill an additional four new oil wells on our existing acreage in the Minerva-Rockdale Field in the coming months.

The Company expects to complete its previously announced equity financing shortly to facilitate the drilling of the next four oil wells. While we cannot guarantee, we expect these next seven oil wells to collectively produce significant positive cash flow for the Company, providing it further flexibility and opportunities to continue rapidly growing its business and creating shareholder value. To that end, going forward, the Company plans and expects to pursue a high growth but balanced strategy of drilling for oil on proven acreage, acquiring exiting oil production that it believes has a high probability of enhancing and increasing production and acquiring additional leases to build its portfolio of potential drilling locations.

Going forward the Company intends to provide regular updates regarding its oil production and other future accomplishments and looks forward to initiating an investment community visibility program in the months ahead.
