Heartland Oil & Gas Corp. (HTOG.OB) Shares Boom in Morning Trading

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Shares of Heartland Oil & Gas exploded in value this morning after the company released some promising news regarding its latest project. The price of company stock hit $0.021 (up from $0.015) on more than 75 million shares traded, marking its highest point since the second week of May.

The release pertained to successful pressure tests conducted on the company’s four-mile methane pipeline in Southeast Kansas, expected to double Heartland’s production in the region upon completion.

“We put the necessary pressure into the pipeline and found no leaks along its entire length,” said Augie Soto, COO of Aztec Well Services, Heartland’s contractor on the project, “The four road crossings and 2 creek crossings were our greatest concern and they held without any problems. The 8 inch main is tied into the 12 inch main and the pipeline is secure all the way to the sales meter. We will begin installation of the 4 inch flow lines without delay and have scheduled the contractor to fracture the wells so they are ready for production as soon as we can connect them.”

The connection of the 12 wells to the new line began immediately after word was received on the tests. The company has also expressed its intent to further explore and develop the four-mile stretch of land for other possible well locations. Heartland Oil & Gas will be one to keep on radar in coming weeks for further developments on the project.

Heartland Oil and Gas Corp. (HTOG.OB) (FWB: HOCA) Announces Record Revenue for The Month of April

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

Heartland Oil and Gas Corp. (OTCBB: HTOG) (FWB: HOCA) announced record revenue for the month of April. Since being acquired by UPDA about a year ago, production in Kansas has been constantly increasing. The company stated that 12 additional wells will soon be completed and that revenues may double once operational. Heartland Oil and Gas stated sales at the Kansas coal beds were over $100,000 for the first time, and over $266,000 for natural gas.

“Even in this difficult investment climate and despite steadily increasing costs for oil field equipment and services, we have maintained our commitment to the growth of our field operations,” concluded Heartland’s Baker. “Progress has been slower than anticipated but steady. We will continue to apply all available resources to the development of our vast acreage in Kansas and to exploit the considerable potential of our well-positioned assets in Texas. While the results we have already achieved are significant, we are even more confident in the promise of the future.”

Heartland Oil and Gas is expecting to have 12 more wells connected to the pipeline extension in the near future. The company is also moving forward in drilling another saltwater disposal well in Palo Pinto County, Texas. Heartland Oil and Gas stated that production from the Catlin Oil and Gas Field has expanded the production of crude oil. That expansion, coupled with the reductions of G & A and payroll costs, should have a significant impact increasing the bottom line.

Heartland Oil and Gas Corp (HTOG.OB) Pursues Institutional/Private Equity Financing

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Heartland Oil and Gas Corp (HTOG.OB) engages in the exploration, development, production, and sale of coalbed methane in Kansas and Texas. The company owns and operates oil and gas leases in these states on nearly 650,000 acres of property. As of December 31, 2007, Heartland Oil and Gas had proved developed net reserves of 2,410,484 thousand cubic feet of gas, and 3,002 thousand barrels of crude oil.

The management of Heartland Oil and Gas recently initiated contact with institutional investors and private equity funds that specialize in oil and gas exploration and production. These discussions have focused on the development of at least 300 wells over the next 12 to 24 months. The company has obtained reports from its consulting petroleum engineers establishing reserve projections for the expected 10-year production life of each well. At a natural gas price of $12/MCF, which is below the current market price of $15/MCF, the engineers estimate that every well should produce $1.2 million over a lifetime.

Heartland Oil and Gas has already drilled and completed 21 wells in the Cherokee Basin area of Kansas. The good news is that 99 percent of these wells are producing gas in commercially viable quantities. These successful results should help the company obtain the $39 million necessary from private equity and institutional investors to drill an additional 300 wells in this area. If financing is obtained, it could mean that the company will have a steadily growing revenue stream over the course of the next decade.

Heartland Oil and Gas Corp. (HTOG.OB) Posts Record Revenues in April

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

Heartland Oil and Gas, a oil and gas exploration and production company and a subsidiary of Universal Property Development and Acquisition Corporation ((UPDA.OB), announced that the company posted revenues from the sale of natural gas in excess of $266,000 during the month of April. Included among the proceeds were first-time sales from its coal bed methane fields in Kansas of more than $100,000.

Acting as a spokesman for Heartland, Jack Baker stated, “The production from Kansas has been consistently increasing since UPDA first acquired Heartland about one year ago and with the steady escalation of prices, revenues have increased at an even steeper rate. With the 12 additional wells to be connected soon to the pipeline extension, revenue growth should become even more dramatic, perhaps as much as double.”

He went on to say, “We have also greatly expanded production from our Catlin Oil and Gas Field in Jack County, Texas, generating over 300 mcfg/day as well as enlarging quantities of crude oil. These increases, coupled with the significant G & A and payroll cost reductions we implemented last year, should considerably strengthen our bottom line in the coming quarters.”

The company also made another announcement relating to pipeline expansion and intends on continuing its efforts to further enhance production with the near completion of another 4.5-mile pipeline extension. This extension will connect the 12 new wells in its Jake Coal Bed Methane Field and substantially expand its area of operations in Miami County, Kansas. Finally Heartland is also in negotiation to make improvements to its wells in Palo Pinto County, Texas.

Jack Baker concluded, “Even in this difficult investment climate and despite steadily increasing costs for oil field equipment and services, we have maintained our commitment to the growth of our field operations. Progress has been slower than anticipated but steady. We will continue to apply all available resources to the development of our vast acreage in Kansas and to exploit the considerable potential of our well-positioned assets in Texas. While the results we have already achieved are significant, we are even more confident in the promise of the future.”

Heartland Oil & Gas Corp. (HTOG.OB) – An Affordable Play in the Fossil Fuel Market

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

With oil well over $105 a barrel and the dollar losing ground to other world currencies daily, the commodity markets in the United States are currently hotter than they have ever been. Heartland Oil & Gas is providing investors with a tempting and very affordable vehicle to position themselves in the oil and natural gas sector. The investment may be speculative at best, but the upside potential outweighs many of the risks associated with the play.

Heartland Oil & Gas Corporation is an exploration and production company that is developing oil, natural gas and coal bed methane gas resources in both eastern Kansas and Texas. The Company’s exploration activities focus on the Cherokee and Forest City Basins, which are believed to be two of the largest coal bed methane basins in the United States. The company has assembled a board of directors that bring over 47 years of experience from backgrounds including oil and gas development, real estate and even law.

Earlier this week, the company released the news that in January of 2008 it generated revenues from the sale of natural gas in excess of $137,000 from its properties in Texas and more than $81,000 from its coal bed methane fields in Kansas. These numbers were all-time high monthly sales for the company, and they were generated without any revenues from the sales of oil. Those astounding numbers nearly surpassed the total revenues for the company for the previous six months combined.

Heartland is projecting a lot of expansion for the upcoming months and continues its four-pronged production enhancement efforts by accelerating the construction of a 4 ½ mile pipeline to connect 12 wells in its Jake Coal Bed Methane Field. In addition to commencing the application of its two-stage well recompletion program to 16 of its existing wells in Kansas, the Company is also pursuing negotiations to acquire a connection to a low pressure pipeline in order to bring more wells online in its Palo Pinto Field. It is also projecting to drill 30 new wells per quarter for the remainder of 2008.

The company reported total revenues of $339,828 for the 9 months ended September 30, 2007 compared to only $286,235 for the same period the prior year. This is an increase of over 18% year over year, but with the early revenues reported for January of 2008, the company is on target for revenues upwards of $2.6 million. The company has assets valued at nearly $7.3 million.

Heartland Oil & Gas is fighting an uphill battle, because many of its competitors enjoy a size advantage. The industry average market cap for the oil and gas sector is just shy of $650 million, compared to the meager $1.02 million of Heartland. This gives companies like Abraxas Petroleum (AMEX: ABP), PetroSearch Energy (OTCBB: PTSG), Carrizo Oil & Gas (NASDAQ: CRZO), and Newfield Exploration (NYSE: NFX) a greater advantage based on economies of scale and sheer manpower, but the management of HTOG is prepared for the challenge.

On February 22nd of this year Beacon Equity Research rated the stock a “speculative buy” and set a target price of $0.22. This analysis was completed before the company released their January revenues. The stock is currently trading at $0.037 with over 27.2 million shares outstanding and holds a float of 22.1 million shares. After the sales figures that Heartland released earlier this month and the continuation of their aggressive growth plans, we would suggest keeping an eye on this company.
