Rango Energy, Inc. : Rango Energy, Inc. : Rango Energy Provides Update on the     Drilling Operations on its Kettleman Middle Dome Project in California  Dallas, Texas July 10, 2013 - Rango  Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: RAGO), an oil  and  gas development company, is pleased to  announce drilling has reached a  depth  of 8,556 feet on  the planned 13,000  ft. first well  at the Kettleman  Middle  Dome (KMD) project.  Drilling is  currently turning  through the  Temblor Sands  that lay  directly  underneath the  Monterey Shale.  The drilling  has recently  passed through  a  1,750 foot  thick section  of the  Monterey Shale  and will  pass through  the  Temblor Sands,  the  Vaqueros  sandstone, and  the  Kreyenhagen  Shale  before  reaching the McAdams formation at approximately 12,000 feet.  The McAdams sandstone has  been a prolific producer  in the adjacent  Coalinga  and Kettleman North Dome, with over 300 wells producing at an average of  over  2.7 MMBOE (million barrels equivalent) per well.  Within the North Dome both the Temblor Sands and the Vaqueros sandstones  were  also prolific oil and  gas formations. In 1928  the first production from  the  Temblor within  the Kettleman  North Dome  generated Initial  Production  (IP)  rates of 3,670 barrels per  day of oil and 80  million cubic feet of gas.  The  discovery well for the Vaqueros sandstone at the North Dome occurred ten years later in 1938 and had IP rates of  560 barrels per day and 880 thousand  cubic  feet of gas.  Currently  Occidental  Petroleum  has  targeted  the  Kreyenhagen  Shale   for  production in the Kettleman Middle Dome area.  Craig Alford, PGeol., and Vice President  of Rango Energy, commented, "We  are  amazed at the potential of the  Kettleman Middle Dome. Apart from our  target,  the McAdams sandstone, there are a minimum  of four other oil and gas  bearing  horizons that could be put into production by Rango at this site."
