Friday, Dec 28, 2012

Caza Oil & Gas, Inc. ("Caza" or the "Company") (TSX:CAZ)(AIM:CAZA) is pleased to provide a production update for the Company's Forehand Ranch 27 State Com No. 1H horizontal Bone Spring well on its Forehand Ranch Prospect in Eddy County, New Mexico.

The Forehand Ranch 27 State Com No. 1H horizontal Bone Spring well was fracture stimulated in the 2nd Bone Spring Sand in twelve stages and has been producing under controlled flowback for two weeks. The well continues to clean up, but production has stabilised. In the past 24 hours, the well recovered hydrocarbons and frac fluids at a gross rate of approximately 1,631 barrels (bbls), producing 170 bbls of oil, 103 thousand cubic feet of natural gas, which equates to 187 bbls of oil equivalent, and 1,444 bbls of frac fluid.

Caza has a 54.83% working interest before payout (42.02% net revenue interest) and a 63.00% working interest after payout (48.27% net revenue interest) in the Forehand Ranch 27 State Com No. 1H well.

The Bone Spring formation in Lea and Eddy Counties, New Mexico, contains multiple potential pay zones for oil and liquids-rich natural gas. Caza's current prospects in the horizontal Bone Spring play are Lynch, Forehand Ranch, Lennox, Copperline, Mad River, Azotea Mesa, Bradley 29, Two Mesas, Quail Ridge, West Rover and West Copperline. The Company is well positioned with approximately 4,100 net acres in the play, and management continues to monitor opportunities to build on Caza's current acreage position.
