PR Newswire

HOUSTON, July 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtus Oil and Gas Corporation (VOIL) ("Virtus" or the "Company") today reiterates its existing business plan and addresses third party reports.

Virtus Oil and Gas is an early stage exploration company that was founded with the mission of acquiring and developing onshore oil and gas working interests in proven basins in the United States, such as the Central Utah Thrust Belt Region. The Company's ultimate strategic focus is the development of oil and natural gas production and reserves.

As part of our corporate strategy, we believe in the following fundamental principles:

  • Acquire oil and gas properties that give us a majority working interest and operational control
  • Utilize a highly experienced team of geologists, engineers, and Landmen
  • Remain focused on prolific hydrocarbon basins located in North America

Rupert Ireland, Chief Executive Officer at Virtus commented, "Within the past three months, our company has made significant progress evaluating and expanding our now 55,477 acres focused on the Parowan Prospect in the Central Utah Overthrust (CUO) region of southwestern Utah. We continue to be driven by our fundamental principles and the team continues to work diligently in order to move the exploration program forward. "

As previously reported, the Company commissioned the Gustavson Associates technical report that supported the decision to acquire an additional 18,000 acres in Iron County, Utah. Most recently, the Company announced it had entered into an agreement with Seismic Exchange, Inc. (SEI) to purchase approximately 30,360 acres (47.438 miles) of 2D seismic data, enabling the Company to initiate phase one of its exploration program.
