CROSSVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 5, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TN-K Energy Group Inc. (Pink Sheets:TNKY) announced today the buyback of 50% working interest in the Todd Anderson lease in Clinton County, Kentucky. The purchase price was $125,000, paid in cash to Power Leasing of Wilmington, Ohio.

The Todd Anderson lease is approximately 53 acres in a highly productive and proven area. There are producing wells in the immediate area in the Granville, Sunnybrook, Stones River, Murfreesboro, Wells Creek and Knox formations. There are 2 producing wells on the lease in the Wells Creek and Knox formations that are currently producing 4-6 barrels per day. The company now owns 87.5% of the lease and 100% of all the necessary equipment to operate the wells.
