Company info

Warning! No Formal Relationship
U.S. Oil & Gas Plc has been admitted to trading on Asset Match at the request of a number of its shareholders. Asset Match has no formal relationship with U.S. Oil & Gas Plc. Investors should also be aware of the international nature of U.S. Oil & Gas Plc and understand the risks fully before investing.

U.S. Oil & Gas plc (USOP), the holding company of U.S. Oil Group, was formed to exploit the potential for oil and gas finds in Nevada, USA. The Company holds the entire share capital of US-based company ‘Major Oil International LLC’ ("Major Oil"). Major Oil has acquired rights to exploration and development acreage in Hot Creek Valley, Nye County, which is adjacent to the oil and gas rich Railroad Valley area of Nevada.

USOP has been looking to find an industry partner to agree a large-scale exploration programme but due to the industry environment a partnership of this kind has not come to fruition. Instead USOP has made the decision to make independent operational progress while keeping potential partners aware of any developments. The objectives of the Company are to prove the existence of reserves and achieve a commercial rate of flow.
