Work Area Clearance Completed on Holloman's Cooper Basin Licenses

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Holloman Energy Corporation (OTCQB: HENC) ("Holloman") updates its shareholders and other interested parties on the progress of its Cooper Basin exploration efforts. Work Area Clearance ("WAC") on Petroleum Exploration License ("PEL") 112 access roads and drill site locations began April 20, 2013 and was completed on April 22, 2013. WAC is the process by which Australia's Native Title Holders review exploration sites to insure planned activity does not harm the cultural integrity of the land to be explored. Permits for roads and well site construction are expected in mid-to-late May 2013, with road construction and site preparation scheduled for completion in late June 2013. Holloman estimates that the first well will be drilled on PEL 112, subject to approvals and final rig availability, in mid-July 2013.

Holloman is also working with joint venture partners to acquire 80 square kilometer 3D seismic data on PEL 444. Data acquisition is scheduled for mid-2013. WAC on PEL 444 began April 9, 2013 was completed on April 19, 2013.

Acquisition of 127 square kilometers of 3-D seismic data on PEL 112 began July 24, 2012, and was completed in late September 2012. Geokinetics (Australia) Pty. Ltd. undertook the 3D seismic survey which focused on the northern most portion of PEL 112 and covered approximately 6% of its available acreage.

Seven drilling targets were identified as a result of the final interpretation of the PEL 112 seismic data. Holloman believes its primary drilling targets are similar geologically to producing structures observed in existing oil pools (including the Butlers, Perlubie and Parsons fields) located to the north of PEL 112 on the Cooper Basin's western-flank. Seismic interpretation indicates that all primary targets display 4-way structural closures.
