United States Oil & Gas Corp Extends Purchase Agreement With Kansas-Based Subsidiary; Sales Rise 29% to $1.5 Million

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) - United States Oil & Gas Corp (PINKSHEETS: USOG), a growing oil and gas products, services and technology company, announced today the extension of the maturity of its promissory note due for the purchase of its profitable Kansas-based subsidiary, Turnbull Oil. As agreed, the note will now mature at year end rather than April 2010.

Alex Tawse, CEO of USOG, commented: "We have worked closely with Turnbull to properly align our capitalization and share registration efforts. This extension makes the most sense for our shareholders. Turnbull continues to deliver solid profits and we are pleased with its steady performance."

Preliminary January 2010 results for operations at Turnbull showed total sales were $1.5 million, a 29% increase over the same period last year. At 54% and 44%, respectively, propane and refined fuels comprise the greatest proportion of sales. Turnbull also sells other oil-based products such as lubricants, and generates revenue from the distribution of refined fuels.

Along with the profitable North Dakota-based United Oil which USOG purchased at the start of 2010, Turnbull is a wholly owned operating subsidiary of USOG. Turnbull was acquired by USOG in May 2009. The annual audit for full-year 2009 results are in the process of being finalized by a certified Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) designated firm.
