Caza Oil & Gas, Inc. (TSX: CAZ)(AIM: CAZA) ("Caza" or the "Company") is pleased to advise that permanent production facilities are in place, and the O.B. Ranch #1 well on the Bongo Prospect in Wharton County, Texas was placed on production on 13 December 2010.

Initial production rates through the permanent facilities are approximately 2.48 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, 400 barrels of oil per day and 190 barrels of water per day in total. The well is producing on a 9/64th choke at 6,100 pounds per square inch flowing tubing pressure and still has approximately 750 barrels of fracture fluid to recover. The production rates are being closely monitored, and Caza will provide an update once the rates and flowing tubing pressure have stabilised.

Caza has acquired an additional 2.0% working interest from an internal partner increasing our working interest to 45.28% and our net revenue interest to approximately 33.51% in the well and production.

In accordance with AIM Rules - Guidance Note for Mining, Oil and Gas Companies, the information contained in this announcement has been reviewed and approved by Anthony B. Sam, Vice President Operations of Caza who is a Petroleum Engineer and a member of The Society of Petroleum Engineers.
