‘Concho to repair Cardinal’s prolific well on its Dawson-Conway Lease’

ABILENE, TX June 30, 2015 – Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CEGX) (“Company”) is pleased to announce that the attorneys for Concho Oilfield Services, LLC and Hudson Petroleum, Ltd., Co., have asked the court to dismiss their claims against the Company with prejudice. The motions filed with the Texas District Court for Shackelford County discharges Cardinal of its obligations pursuant to the March 10, 2015 Joint Settlement Agreement. The amicable settlement of the suit requires Concho Oilfield Services to repair CEGX’s No. 5B well on the Dawson-Conway 195B lease.

Timothy Crawford, CEO the Company comments, “This is good news on several fronts. First, the $100,000 payment cleans up our balance sheet by removing the obligation we accrued at December 31, 2014 in keeping with generally accepted accounting principles. Second, our payment and the motion filed with the court set the stage for Concho to begin the work necessary to repair the #5B well and get it producing again on our Dawson-Conway lease. That 195B #5B well was one of our best producers on the Dawson-Conway Lease, before Concho performed work on the well in February of 2014. Returning it to production is a critical first step in the Company’s efforts to fully monetize this property”.
