Spotlight Companies  |

Viking Energy Group, Inc. (OTC PINK: VKIN) is pleased to announce its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mid-Con Petroleum, LLC ("Mid-Con"), completed the drilling of 6 new producing oil wells on its ABC lease in Eastern Kansas. The intent to drill such wells was previously announced by the company on February 15th, 2017.

Mid-Con's operator, S&B Operating, LLC ("S&B"), who is experienced in designing and operating enhanced oil recovery projects, coordinated and supervised this development initiative. All 6 wells were drilled, cased and cemented as of April 19th, 2017. S&B was able to complete all 6 wells under budget by utilizing its local contacts and personnel already in place. S&B performed various types of analysis on the wells, which included coring, geologic analysis and neutron logging. The wells were perforated and stimulated the following week. All 6 wells were put on-line in or around the first week of May and have been producing oil. Mid-Con expects by July of this year to be able to determine the estimated daily production from each well for the near and mid-term, following the dissipation of the initial production. The wells were drilled at a depth of approximately 380 feet targeting the Wayside formation, which has been prolific in the region for many years. Wells similar to those drilled on this lease have demonstrated the ability to produce for over 20 years.

The ABC lease (approx. 400 acres) is only one of Mid-Con's producing leases in Eastern Kansas. Approximately 30% of the ABC lease has been developed, leaving many more drillable locations.
