AUSTIN, Texas, May 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United American Petroleum Corp. (OTCBB:UAPC) is pleased to provide the results from its independent geophysical study performed on its Bastrop County, Texas property. The study was performed by Southport Exploration, Inc. (SEI) and its subsidiary Digital Magnetotelluric Technologies (DMT) and was supervised by one of our associated geological firms, JMR Resources. The survey was taken on the Company's Gabriel and Rosser acreage. The purpose of the survey was to verify proposed new well locations, delineate hydrocarbon potential, and to do an initial recon on the mound expansion between the current Gabriel wells and Rosser wells. Data was acquired directly offsetting the Gabriel #4 well and was across both the Gabriel and Rosser leases and analyzed to determine the likely presence of oil and gas. The Gabriel #4 originally had initial production of 427 barrels oil per day when it produced previously in 1992.

We believe the results from the MT stations have an excellent correlation to the well logs and identified strong probable oil in the Serpentine, Austin Chalk, and Buda. The results show a thick serpentine "channel" expanding from the Gabriel #3 to the Gabriel #4 wells and thickening to the north. A thick porous oil-bearing zone shows at the top of the channel which correlates with the high soil geochemistry study taken on the Gabriel lease in 2009.

From the findings, JMR Resources strongly recommends drilling an offset well to the Gabriel #4 well. We believe the subsurface, soil geochemistry and MT survey all point to a strong oil zone in the serpentine formation. To further refine and delineate the boundary of the target location, a MT station to the north will be analyzed. Additionally, MT stations need to be analyzed to determine the eastern expansion offsetting the Gabriel #4 well. These two stations were also in high geochemical areas. Overall results of the geological study show a potentially significant oil zone offsetting the Gabriel #4 well to the north.

Michael Carey, CEO of United American Petroleum Corp., stated, "In an effort to bring projects that will benefit our shareholders, we feel it is of the upmost importance to utilize the best possible tools and technology available to help mitigate risk and increase the potential of success. Evaluating the results of the analysis to date not only gives us a better understanding of the lease and the zones, but also provides us with an overall picture for expansion and future development. From what we have seen, these test results are very encouraging and we are anxious to get underway with the drilling of the first new location."
