Lucas Energy, Inc.

Lucas Energy, Inc. (NYSE Amex:LEI), an independent oil and gas company (the "Company" or "Lucas"), today announced that the Company has spudded (commenced drilling) the Louis Zavadil No.2HST well in Gonzales County, Texas. The Louis Zavadil No.2HST well is a new lateral from an old horizontal well in the Austin Chalk formation. The well is anticipated to be drilled and completed within 2-4 weeks.

In the past six months, Lucas has drilled two new Austin Chalk wells and three new Austin Chalk laterals from old well bores. Another new Austin Chalk well is anticipated to commence drilling within the next month, and another new Austin Chalk lateral from an older well bore will commence subsequent to the completion of the Louis Zavadil No.2HST well.

Initial potential production from the drilling program ranges between 100 BOPD (bbls of oil per day) and 500 BOPD. Lucas has experienced no dry holes from new drilling in the Company's history. William A. Sawyer, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company said, "Drilling of new wells has improved our gross operated production from 200 BOPD in the first half of the last fiscal year to 500 BOPD in the last month of fiscal year 2012 (March 2012)."
