Victory Energy Moves Forward With Horizontal Drilling

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - July 7, 2008) - Victory Energy Corporation (OTCBB: VYEY) announced today it will move forward with horizontal drilling on its next gas well in Victory's Canyon Sandstone Gas play located in the Texas Permian Basin.

The consultants Victory engaged to evaluate horizontal drilling in the Canyon Sandstone formation have made a strong recommendation to move ahead with this process. Horizontal drilling will increase the overall volume recovered and shorten the recovery time of the natural gas.

Victory's drilling contractor will first drill vertically through the Canyon Sandstone formation. Logs will then be run across the formation to determine the ideal location to drill horizontally. It is anticipated each horizontal five hundred feet will require approximately four additional days of drilling.

"The consultants are extremely positive regarding the impact horizontal drilling should have on the total volume of natural gas recovered from each well. Comparative information where horizontal drilling was utilized on similar gas formations is very encouraging," stated Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.
