New Acquisition Marks Continued Progress in Growth Strategy of Building an Asset Base of both Natural Gas and Oil Production

FRISCO, TX--(Marketwired - December 19, 2017) - West Texas Resources, Inc. (OTC PINK: WTXR), a Texas-based independent oil and gas company, today announced that it has entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire Gas Tap Corp., a privately-held company substantial natural gas reserves in the Barnett Shale, Texas.

The Letter of Intent represents the non-binding obligations of the parties and is subject to each party's continued due diligence inquiry and the execution of definitive agreements between the parties.
