Victory Energy Corporation Schedules Lodgepole Well Drilling Permit

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 27, 2007 -- Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announced today that the permitting process for the first Lodgepole well has started.

The first Lodgepole well has been identified in Section 16, T36N-R36E. This is the initial drilling project that Victory Energy Corporation and its partner Coastal Petroleum Company will begin with in Valley County, Montana.

The permit for this well has been filed and an application for special exception is being filed today. The exception is required because the location is less than 660 feet from the boundary of the acreage held under this lease. By meeting the March 15, 2007 deadline, Victory's permit request will be heard by the Montana Board of Oil and Gas Conservation on April 12, 2007 in Billings, Montana.

"Victory will attend and present the evidence to obtain the approval of the Montana Board. This process has been completed successfully many times as the reason for the exception is simple and straightforward. With the Montana Board's approval, the first well could be ready to drill by May 1, 2007," stated Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.

Potential indications are that estimated recoverable hydrocarbons from a good Lodgepole well can be approximately 4,000,000 barrels of oil and 2 billion cubic feet of gas. The 138,000 acres in Valley County, Montana could have over 500 Lodgepole Prospects, with approximately 100 Prospects currently high-graded through Geochemical evaluation. The main target for drilling is the Lodgepole Reef zone, with additional testing of the Bakken zone as well as the Nisku and Red River zones. Total depth anticipated to be drilled in this first Lodgepole test is 5,600 feet.
