Treaty Energy Updates on Belize and Texas Oil Projects

The Wireline Logging System Is Acquired and Being Prepared for Shipment to Belize; Treaty to Drill an Initial 12-Well Program and Plans to Add a 2nd 12-Well Drilling Program on Its Wooldridge Leases

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - Treaty Energy Corporation (OTCQB: TECO) (PINKSHEETS: TECO) (, a growth-oriented international energy company, reports on continued progress on its Belize and Texas oil and gas projects.

Belize Update:

Andrew V. Reid, Chairman and Co-CEO of Treaty Energy Corporation, stated, "Treaty Energy has acquired the 'Wireline Logging Truck' with all supporting equipment, a system valued at over $200,000 that will be used to wireline log SAN JUAN #2 and all future wells in Belize. The truck assembly is having new cables and new electronics installed, and based on the current time line, the Wireline Logging Truck will be leaving for Belize on Friday, March 16th. Pictures of the new Wireline Logging Truck will be posted to the website."

Mr. Reid added, "Max Mohamed of RedRock Exploration, Inc. will meet the Wireline Logging Truck on its arrival in Belize and will proceed to perform the wireline logging of the SAN JUAN #2 well."

"Mr. Mohamed has been retained by Treaty Energy to take responsibility for oversight of all Belizean operations and will report to Stephen L. York, President of Treaty," added Mr. Reid. "Our Belizean Project Manager, Keon Garbutt, will report to Mr. Mohamed."

Max Mohamed will be working out of the new Treaty Belize Energy Ltd offices that are located at the Independence Airport outside the Village of Independence, Belize.

Texas Update:

On Thursday, March 15th, Mr. Bill Hardin will fly to Belize to make arrangements to have the smaller of the Rigs, with all its supporting components, shipped back to Texas. This Rig, upon its return to Texas, will immediately commence drilling the first two 'permitted' wells on the Wooldridge leases.

Mr. Reid stated, "Ten additional drill sites are in the process of being permitted on the Wooldridge leases, with a possibility of 12 more drill sites after completion of drilling the initial 12 wells that Treaty has funded."

Mr. Reid stated further, "Previous wells on the Wooldridge leases had initially production rates between 30 and 31 barrels of oil per day (BOPD). We are very optimistic that we will see similar production rates out of the new wells being drilled."

In closing Mr. Reid said, "Workover of old wells continues and more wells are being brought on line each month. With the many new wells to be drilled and the continuing workover efforts on old wells, we are very pleased with the future outlook of oil production from our Texas leases."
