("BOG" or the "Company"), today announced an update on the status of BOG's registration statement filed with the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on September 21, 2010 for the spin-off dividend distribution to shareholders of BOG's parent, American International Industries, Inc.

BOG plans to have its shares of common stock subject to quotation on the OTCBB.

BOG continues to evaluate the technical and economic merits of various oil and gas investments in Texas and the acquisition of oil and gas portfolio assets in international locations, initially focusing in Africa. As part of its business plan, BOG intends to add additional personnel to its experienced technical and management team during the first quarter of 2011 to further support its plan. BOG, based in Houston, Texas, the energy capital of the world, has a technical and management team with connections in the oil and gas sector and believes that it has available for acquisition many potential oil and gas prospects in both North America and international locations, including Africa.
