Platina Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PLTG) is on the move and should continue to have the attention of investors looking to possibly benefit from the energy sectors! Tuesday after the stock markets closed, the company, a fast growing E & P Company, issued a press release that it has met its promise to achieve positive revenues from oil sales for the third (3rd) fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2007.

This is additional great news for the company as the press release states that accordingly, the Company is on track to be operationally profitable within the next few months as previously forecasted by management!

"Thanks to expedited oil sales at record prices, we managed to have significant revenues for the Company for the quarter resulting in our largest revenues from operations in the corporate history. Although we are well on our way to profitability, we met our first financial revenue milestone promise to shareholders relative to revenue production for the quarter just ending. We are confident that operational profitability is fast approaching and will grow exponentially going forward," stated Blair Merriam, President of Platina Energy.

Watch this company closely! Last week the company also announced that it has negotiated a repurchase agreement of its 75% net revenue interests in its Tennessee field for the Devonian Shale prospect from Homestead Oil. In 2007, the Company entered into an off balance sheet project financing contract that had originally resulted in Platina receiving a 25% net revenue interest in the field. The press release states that since that time, the Company commenced operations on four (4) permitted field sites and successfully drilled and completed two natural gas wells ready to go on line.

The stock closed Tuesday at Nineteen cents a share.
