"Once again, the management of Maverick Energy Group is pleased to announce increasing revenues and net profits for both the most recent three and six-month periods. We believe that through continued concentration on low-risk, high-reward drilling programs and efficient operating procedures, we can continue to grow Maverick and further build upon the strong foundation we already have in place.

"Our outlook for the coming year looks very promising as we expand our lease holdings and increase our well count in areas such as Doddridge and Harrison counties, West Virginia. As mentioned in the latest edition of our Drill Bits newsletter, available on our website, we have identified over 30 drilling sites on our newest leases and plan on commencing drilling on the first five of those sites in the near future.

"These new drilling programs, which we will operate ourselves, coupled with ongoing oil and gas from our existing wells and revenues from our operations in the Big Foot Field in Texas should ensure solid growth for the company for the foreseeable future," said Jim McCabe, CEO of Maverick Energy Group, LTD.
