United American Petroleum Corp. provides update on its Marcee well in Gonzales County, Texas

United American Petroleum Corp. (OTCBB: UAPC.OB) is pleased to announce it has scheduled a workover on its Marcee well located in Gonzales County, Texas, which consists of 186 lease acres. Current production from this well is approximately 1/4 bbls of oil every few days due to paraffin and downhole issues which are symptomatic of wells within the region. These issues are typically resolved through industry standard procedures, which United is in the process of implementing. Successful completion of this workover procedure is estimated to increase well production from 1/4 bbls per day to potentially 8-10 bbls a day. With the anticipated increased production from this well, and 100% ownership of the working interest, the Company is looking forward to increasing its revenue stream and creating additional shareholder value.

This workover will consist of the utilization of a rig to pull all existing rods, tubing, and downhole pump from the well. We will then run in the hole with a scraper bit to clean the casing to the existing perforations, which will allow for removal of any scaling and/or paraffin that has built up in the wellbore over time. Upon successful completion of this procedure, we will run in the hole with a perforating gun on a wireline truck to reperforate (completely reopening the perforations) the existing perforations. Once complete, this will enable us to acidize the well with a solution of 4,000 gallons of 15% Hydrochloric Acid, as well as acid solvent, iron control, acid inhibitor, surfactant, and sulfide control which will be pumped into the well. This solution should not only inhibit future build-up of the current scaling and paraffin issue, but should also allow the well to perform optimally.

The acidization process will be performed in two stages utilizing ball sealers to help ensure maximum effectiveness. The solution will also be pumped in with 500 bbls of fresh water. Once completed, all tubing, rods, and downhole pump (which will be redressed or replaced if needed) will be run back into the hole and the well will be placed back online.

Michael Carey, United's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our opportunity to rework and accelerate the production of existing wells in our portfolio is vital to our organic growth and top line revenues. We believe the processes are not too time-consuming and are economical. The additional revenues generated will assist in facilitating workovers throughout our current asset base and improve our cash flow significantly."
