results from the work effort. The primary free flowing IP test indicated

"We hope that after major treatment is completed with our own technology that
we will significantly increase that amount," said Ayo Odetunmibi engineer for
Petrotech. He added that 70% of the wells located on these leases could be
productive wells, producing up to 5 barrels of oil per day averages but with
the proper treatments, work over and recomplete procedures; this could yield
350 or more barrels per day, and it seems we are on the right track so far.
"Please look for our announcement of our location web cam coming up soon".

FNM Sector Commentary: Even with some industry analysts believing the Energy
sector is currently slumping, Oswald Clint, an analyst from Bernstein
Research, recently reported he believed that oil prices can hold steady and
even rise in the coming years leading into 2015. The primary reasoning for
Clint thinking this is the growth of U.S. oil production is slowing because
the best new American fields have been tapped, and the number of rigs probing
new fields has flattened out.  One of the more difficult places for Big Oil
lately has been onshore in the U.S., which is in the midst of a historic oil
boom being driven by the new discoveries. American production is now rising
faster than any time since the 1950s, putting the nation on track to become
the world's biggest oil producer.  This leads many to believe emerging stars
in the Oil & Gas industry like PetroTech Oil and Gas are positioning
themselves to take full advantage of potential growth in this sometimes
volatile market.
