                                         ("U.S. Oil" or the "Company")
                                                       
                      Unaudited Interim Results for the six month period to 31 March 2013
                                                       
U.S. Oil & Gas Plc (GXG London: USOP, OTC New York: USOPY), the oil and gas exploration company with
exploration assets in Nevada, is pleased to announce its Unaudited Interim Results for the six month period to
31 March 2013.


                                              Chairman's Statement

Testing of the Company's Eblana #1 well in Hot Creek Valley, USA, was completed in May 2013 and confirmed a
significant oil discovery by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary  Major Oil International LLC ('Major Oil').
The discovery and the probable presence of significant hydrocarbon resources have been independently confirmed
in a Competent Person's Report (CPR) by Forrest A. Garb & Associates (FGA), which we announced to the market on
23 May 2013.

The CPR shows that a portion of the discovery, the area updip to Eblana #1, has now been reclassified by FGA
from Prospective to Contingent Resources, reflecting their opinion of the significantly reduced risk associated
with the discovery.  The CPR discloses that the Best Estimate (P50) of net recoverable Contingent Resources for
the Tertiary Volcanics in the Eblana #1 lease area, is 19 million barrels ('MMBbl'), while prospective original
oil-in-place ('OOIP') resources are estimated at 107 MMBbl.   Over the entire 88 sq.km lease area, FGA's Best
Estimate (P50) for the Tertiary Volcanics of net recoverable Prospective Resources is 57 MMBbl with prospective
OOIP resources of 283 MMBbl.  Oil quality is higher than the producing wells in neighbouring Railroad Valley at
between 28.5 API and 33 API.  The high estimates in the CPR indicate that there are up to 3.3 billion Bbl or
more over the entire 88 sq.km U.S. Oil lease area.

FGA confirmed that the Company has carried out its operations to the highest standards and they state: 'The
ongoing exploration activities undertaken and proposed in the program are consistent with current practices in
the oil and gas exploration.  Major Oil used a thorough, rigorous process to identify possible oil and gas
accumulations, mitigate risk and determine the location of Eblana #1.'

During the six month period covered by this report, administration expenses remained steady at $604k (2012:
$576k). Other operational costs increased in line with drilling operations.  Cash and Cash Equivalents
excluding treasury shares and other receivables amounted to $2.17m (2011: $5.269m) on 31 March 2013.

The Company now intends expanding the management team whilst maintaining tight control of expenditure.
Additional personnel may include senior technical, administration and ground project management expertise.

In November 2012, US Oil successfully obtained a Court Order in Dublin requiring certain website operators to
disclose the identities of those users of their bulletin boards who had made unlawful statements concerning the
Company and its directors.  The Company will continue to pursue those who defame US Oil and its officers.

The Company has appointed Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas as depositary bank for its American Depositary
Receipt (ADR) programme, and on 22 March 2013 trading commenced in the depositary securities on the over-the-
Counter ("OTC") market in the United States of America.

The Company is currently developing its operational plans in the light of FGA's recommendations and intends to
apply its customary rigour to evaluating and implementing those plans.  Development pathways to enhance the
Company's administrative and operational capabilities will be studied in the light of the likely operational
requirements.  All financing and partnership options will be considered on their merits in the light of the
various development pathways being considered.

And finally, I would like to thank US Oil's shareholders, who have supported the Company through the recent
tumultuous market conditions affecting all exploration companies and yet continue to support our actions.


The following interim historical financial information on U.S. Oil and Gas Plc represents the Company's interim
results for the six months ended 31 March 2013. The financial information (for which the Directors have

ordinary shares in issue during the relevant year as set out below.  There is no difference between the diluted
loss per share and the basic loss per share.

Expenditure  on  exploration activities is deferred on areas of interest until a reasonable assessment  can  be
determined of the existence or otherwise of economically recoverable reserves. No amortisation has been charged
in  the  period.  The directors have reviewed the carrying value of the exploration and evaluation  assets  and
consider  it  to be fairly stated and not impaired at 31 March 2013. The recoverability of the exploration  and
evaluation assets is dependent on the successful development or disposal of oil and gas in the Group's  licence
area.

Definitions - Contingent and Prospective Resources

The (Society of Petroleum Engineers Petroleum Resource Management System (SPE-PRMS) defines contingent
resources as "those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from
known accumulations by application of development projects, but which are not currently considered to be
commercially recoverable due to one or more contingencies".  One of those contingencies is stated by the SPE-
PRMS as "a discovered accumulation where project activities are ongoing to justify commercial development in
the foreseeable future".

The SPE-PRMS defines prospective resources as "those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to
be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations".  The SPE-PRMS further states that these have an
associated chance of discovery (geologic success) and a chance of development.  Prospective Resources are
exploratory in nature, carrying a high risk factor.

About American Depositary Receipts (ADRs)
An ADR is a negotiable certificate that represents ownership in securities of a non U.S. company. ADRs are
issued by a sponsoring U.S. bank and denominated in U.S. dollars. An ADR represents a specified number of
shares (or one share) in a foreign stock that is traded on a U.S. exchange.

ADRs allow foreign companies shares to be traded in a similar manner to shares in U.S. companies on the New
York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the American Stock Exchange (AMEX), Nasdaq and the over-the-counter (OTC) market.
ADRs enable U.S. citizens to acquire shares in a foreign company without the need for cross border or cross
currency transactions. Any dividends and capital gains are in U.S. dollars.
