Victory Energy Corporation Announces Shallow Gas Prospect

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 27, 2007 -- Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announced today that included with its Letter of Intent with Coastal Petroleum Company is a 34,000 acre shallow gas prospect in Valley County Montana leases.

Identified as the Starbuck's East Prospect it is believed to have similarities to two other major gas fields in Montana, the Tiger Ridge and the Bowdin Gas fields. This Prospect is located on the northeastern flank of the Bowdin Dome in Northeastern Montana. Recent drilling in the area confirms the presence of a large, untested relief structural closure. The Upper Cretaceous Eagle and Phillips sands may provide two shallow gas targets. Depth to the Eagle zone is approximately 1100 feet, while the depth to the Phillips zone is approximately 2300 feet. The combined reserve potential for both the Eagle and Phillips reservoirs is estimated to be 220 billion cubic feet of gas.

"Victory Energy has the opportunity to own 50% of this potential gas prospect. With a gas line relatively close to the acreage, coupled with the low cost to drill these wells, the prospect represents a significant opportunity for the Company and the Company is committed towards its success," stated Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.
