Rango Energy, Inc.: Rango Energy Provides Update on the Drilling Operations on  its Kettleman Middle Dome Project in California  DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/13 --  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."  About Rango Energy  Rango Energy, Inc. is an exploration stage oil and natural gas company with a  strategy to identify, evaluate, explore, and develop new opportunities for oil  and natural gas production across North America.
