LONDON, Jan. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alamo Energy Corp. (OTCBB:ALME) is pleased to report that a new oil discovery reported by BBC confirms Alamo Energy's strategy and expansive pursuit of nearby oil and gas prospect in Southern England.

On 7 January 2011, the BBC News released the initial data on Northern Petroleum's successful oil drilling in West Sussex, south of London.  This drill campaign, started in November 2010, has now yielded encouraging results with a potential oil resource between 35 million to 61 million barrels of oil.  The well was drilled between two producing fields in West Sussex, Horndean and Singleton. Subsequent plans call for production testing of the well. 

For Alamo Energy, this latest local discovery provides added belief that the company is on the right course on its own nearby Wessex / Weald Province oil lease in southern England. This lease contains 4 onshore license blocks with a total oil-resource potential up to 236 million barrels. BP, Nexen Energy and Star Energy, a subsidiary of Petronas are among the growing number of major producers pursuing development leases in this new rapidly emerging oil and gas region. 

Allan Millmaker, Chief Executive Officer, said, "Northern's success at Markwells Wood shows the increasing trend for UK onshore exploration. We believe that recent results from exploration activities nearby highlight the potential of Alamo's exploration licences and prospects in Southern England."
