    American Oil & Gas has recently increased its working interest in the approximate 87,000 gross acre Goliath project from a 50%

    American Oil & Gas has recently increased its working interest in the approximate 87,000 gross acre Goliath project from a 50% working interest to a 95% working interest in approximately 63,000 net acres located in Williams and Dunn Counties, North Dakota. American increased its interest through two separate and unrelated transactions with Teton Energy Corporation and privately held Evertson Energy Partners.

    American purchased Teton Energy Corporation's interests in the Goliath project, which comprised approximately 14,900 net undeveloped acres, Teton's 25% ownership in the Champion 1-25H well, 17% ownership in the Viall 1-30 well, 6% ownership in the Solberg 32-2 well, and Teton's interest in seven gross (approximately .12 net) producing Bakken wells for $900,000 in cash.

    American also closed on an acreage exchange at Goliath with Evertson Energy Partners which resulted in American receiving approximately 11,600 net acres and Evertson receiving a 50% working interest in the Champion 1-25H well, a 34% working interest in the Viall 1-30 well, an 11.9% working interest in the Solberg 32-2 well and American's rights to formations below the Three Forks in four 640 acre sections.

    After closing these transactions, American now controls approximately 60,000 net undeveloped acres at Goliath, a 25% working interest in the Champion 1-25H well, a 17% working interest in the Viall 1-30 well, a 6% working interest in the Solberg 32-2 well and an interest in seven gross (approximately .36 net) other producing Bakken wells.

    "The Bakken play in the Williston Basin of North Dakota and Montana remains one of the most active and prolific oil areas in North America," stated Pat O'Brien, CEO of American. "This activity is supported by strong economic returns at current oil prices and a U.S. Geological Survey assessment in 2008 that estimated the Bakken formation holds over three billion barrels of technically recoverable oil."

    O'Brien continued, "We believe our Goliath acreage has the potential to demonstrate results similar to commercial wells being drilled by other operators in the North Dakota portion of the basin and are extremely pleased to have been able to increase our ownership interest at what we think are attractive terms. In addition to the Bakken potential on our acreage, we are also encouraged by our geological interpretation of the Three Forks formation and expect future drilling activity at Goliath would include targeting this formation as well. We continue our efforts to bring in an outside participant to pay for all or a substantial portion of one or more wells in return for an ownership interest in the project, and we remain confident that the Bakken and Three Forks formations at Goliath will become a major focus for American in the coming months."
