Alamo Energy Updates Shareholders on 2011 Progress

LONDON – December 20, 2011 – Alamo Energy Corp. (OTCBB:ALME), an independent company focused on the exploration, development and production of onshore oil and gas reserves in the United Kingdom and United States, is pleased to provide the following update to shareholders on 2011 calendar year progress.

Dear Shareholders:

Since the company was established, we have positioned Alamo to succeed with a focused growth strategy based on regional diversification.  The first component of this strategy is to become a leading energy player in the United States through the steady development of our existing acreage in the Appalachian Basin, as well as pursuing additional unconventional onshore natural gas and liquid play opportunities.  The second component of this strategy is the development of four onshore exploration blocks in the UK, Weald Basin totaling 400 square kilometers, which we believe, have vast potential based on the proven energy production within the basin and adjacent producing properties.

At this time, I would like to reflect on Alamo’s performance in the past calendar year.

In April, we firmly positioned ourselves as a significant player in the Appalachian Basin with the $6,775,000 acquisition of the KYTX group of companies. We believe this acquisition added considerable production revenue, reserves, elevated the company to the role of Operator and provided a platform for growth.

We continue to develop the Appalachian assets and announced in October that we had brought online eleven natural gas wells as part of our ongoing development program. This gives us 58 total producing wells and these latest well completions have far exceeded our projected flow-test targets.  Our flow-test results from these 11 wells are triple our current production rate, which should enable us to maximize the revenue from this acreage in the coming months.

In the UK, we believe our acreage continues to look more and more promising. Our enthusiasm for the potential of the four blocks was confirmed by our recent partnership with Northdown Energy, which is led by UK oil and gas veteran explorer Peter Ross.  The willingness of Peter and his team to partner with Alamo, pay a prospect fee to farm-in and participate on a pre-seismic basis confirms the attractiveness of the acreage. According to an independent geological report, the total hydrocarbon resource potential for Alamo’s four blocks is estimated to be as much as 236 million barrels.  Our UK acreage is in an area that is home to a number of producing oil and gas fields.  We are eagerly anticipating the commencement of the seismic surveying of our property, which we are currently targeting for the first half of 2012.

On the finance front, we believe Alamo has had a strong year, securing a new $2.4 million financing facility in addition to the $1.3 million investment from institutional investors. As of October 31, the company was cashflow positive and continues to optimize its operations to improve cashflow margins.

We continue to capitalize on the advantage of being a small and dynamic company with low overhead costs, which we believe enables us to be very nimble in seeking out new avenues for growth. We intend to remain very active on the acquisition front, pursuing opportunities to add producing assets or attractive appraisal development acreage. We are confident that our strategy – combining low-risk, stable return investments in the United States with a high-impact exploration opportunity in the UK – will maximize shareholder value.  We strive to achieve balance by investing in both elements of our strategy and will seize opportunities where we believe we can reallocate our resources for a greater return.  For example, in November, we monetized a small maturing asset we had in Texas, given its limited upside, in order to channel that capital into our promising shale acreage.

In summary, we believe this has been a good year for Alamo during which we have built a solid platform for future growth. In addition, we have raised our visibility with institutional investors, and seek to expand this investor base next year while improving our asset base. Our positive cashflow from existing assets and our experienced team puts the company in a strong position to advance to the next level. The company is looking stronger than ever and I believe that 2012 will be an exciting year for the company and look forward to your continued support.


Thank you,

Allan Millmaker,
Chairman,
