‘Report is an overview on Ohio, California and Texas assets’ production’

Dublin OH, October 31, 2013 — (OTCQB: CEGX) Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. announces the status of its monthly production for its Holmes County Ohio, Colusa County California and Shackelford County Texas Assets.

Timothy Crawford comments, “We are currently producing natural gas in Colusa County, California on our 654 acre lease with 2 deep gas wells. We are also producing oil in Holmes, Knox and Licking County, Ohio and on our 618 acre lease in Shackelford County, Texas. Our Shackelford County asset shows the most upside promise for significantly increased production. We are in the midst of reworking these Shackelford County wells. The roads are being repaired to accommodate the drilling rig for the rework of our 41 wells; 3 wells are already producing oil without any rework. We have addressed nearly all of the regulatory issues required by the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) over the last several months, which is required annually for shut-in wells. The injector wells will be reworked over the next 10 days which will complete all the regulatory requirements which will allow us to sell the 100 plus barrels of oil we presently hold in our tank batteries. Dave Rippy, our new COO, along with our consulting geologist are confident that we can bring the Shackelford County field back into robust production by the end of the year. He anticipates that the field, once fully reworked, will yield from up to 400 barrels of oil per day.

About Cardinal Energy Group, Inc.
Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. is an American company that produces American oil and natural gas. The Company is based in Dublin, Ohio. Cardinal focuses on known formations that have significant proven reserves remaining that can be produced economically. Cardinal targets fields with wells that may need remediation due to neglect or undercapitalization. The prospect must offer a strong up-side for production. The upside we seek in a prospect is twofold – it must have the potential be restarted or have its current production increased using newer technology and remediation methods; it must also have additional lease acreage which can be further developed by completing development wells adjacent to existing producing wells. Cardinal exploits these undervalued assets by acquiring a majority working interest in the prospect and then applies the Company’s calculated development plan. Cardinal also seeks acquisitions of over-leveraged companies when there is a clear upside from their purchase based on strong commodity prices. The Company operates throughout the Continental United States.
