Legend Oil and Gas Ltd. Begins Latest Drilling Program in Kansas

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2013) - Legend Oil and Gas Ltd. ( OTCQB : LOGL ) ("Legend", the "Company") has commenced drilling the 16 well oil development program on its Piqua property in southeastern Kansas. The first three of a four well initial tranche have been drilled and cased into the Squirrel reservoir zone, with the fourth currently drilling.

Marshall Diamond-Goldberg, President of Legend Oil and Gas Ltd., stated, "We have begun our program on the largely undeveloped Pat Collins lease where we have 320 acres of land on which there are four producing oil wells. Prior to drilling these new locations, we washed three of the four existing wells with a production increase in the first week totaling 2.3 BOPD from the lease. These encouraging results and the large development potential which exists on the parcel made the decision to spud our first tranche of wells at Pat Collins an easy one."

The first three of these wells are now drilled and have all encountered oil in the Squirrel reservoir with thicknesses in two of the wells exceeding the reservoir zone on adjacent leases. Completion operations and equipping for production for all four wells will commence in the first week of August with first production expected in mid month. Once completed and equipped, an extended production period will commence prior to the second tranche of wells being drilled; likely in early September.
