US Oil and Gas plc
(“US Oil” or “the Company”)
Company Suspension

U.S. Oil and Gas (PLUS: USOP), with exploration assets in Nevada, USA, announces the following Trading Suspension update.

PLUS suspension
On 23rd August 2011, ordinary shares in US Oil and Gas were suspended from trading on PLUS-quoted, in accordance with Rule 78 of the PLUS Rules for Issuers.

On January 25th 2012, the Company held the latest of several recent discussions with PLUS to again voice the profound concerns of the Board and shareholders at the continuing suspension of US Oil and Gas shares. The company would prefer to inform shareholders of the full details of this meeting, but PLUS has insisted that publishing such detail would not be helpful.

US Oil regrets the anxiety caused to shareholders by the suspension and by the Company’s continuing inability to communicate details of its discussions with PLUS. The Company can, however, confirm that an agreement in principle has been reached with a PLUS Markets Corporate Advisor, who is currently working with the Company, and details will be announced subject to lifting of the suspension.
