                   LONGREACH OIL AND GAS LIMITED

          Seismic Acquisition Ahead of 1st Well in H1 2013

LONGREACH OIL AND GAS LIMITED (TSX-V: LOI) ("Longreach"), an
independent oil and gas company holding exploration and near term
development licences in Morocco, is pleased to announce the start of
its 500 km 2D seismic programme ahead of plans to drill its first well
on the Sidi Moktar permit onshore Morocco in H1 next year.

The survey will cover the slated drill targets of Koba and Kamar, to
further de-risk and optimise the drilling location for these prospects,
as well as to help convert a number of other identified leads into
drillable prospects.

Prospectiuni SA ("Prospectiuni"), which has extensive seismic
acquisition experience in Morocco, has been contracted to deploy its
advanced technology Vibroseis cable-less crew to acquire the data.
This survey is part of the fulfilment of licence obligations.

The 2D seismic survey is expected to take 2 months, with processing
being undertaken in parallel with data acquisition. This approach will
provide new data in a timely manner for Longreach to confirm its well
locations for its 2013 well programme.

In preparation for its 2013 drill campaign, Longreach is also launching
international tenders for a rig to drill two wells and to procure the
associated long-lead items.

Commenting, Bryan Benitz, Chairman and CEO of Longreach, said: "This is
one of the final stepping stones to drilling our first well.
The Company expects to be fully funded for its current multi-well
programme for next year, where the aim is to target a relatively low
risk prospect, which if successful, will allow to get into early
production to generate near-term cash flow. This will provide
additional foundations for the Company's medium term plan for Morocco,
where we plan to drill and bring on stream a combination of high impact
and near-term producing assets."

Longreach had interpreted over 4,500km of existing 2D seismic data on
Sidi Moktar and has now completed the reprocessing of 1,750km with Key
Seismic Solutions Ltd ("Key Seismic") in Calgary. Key Seismic has
provided cutting-edge in-house seismic processing technologies which,
under Longreach's careful guidance, have yielded a significantly
enhanced image of the prospective Triassic section in the subsurface.
This enhanced image was achieved through the judicious use of Key
Seismic's proprietary multiple attenuation and pre-stack time migration
software. The removal of multiple reflections and the imaging of the
dipping Triassic rocks, correlated into the nearby gas-producing
Meskala field, has transformed the prospectivity of the Triassic
section of some large structures.

Longreach has also completed a comprehensive petrophysical analysis of
the neighbouring wells to better understand the reservoir and seal
potential of the entire Triassic stratigraphic section. This study has
confirmed the required reservoir and seal properties of the prospective
Triassic reservoir units in this proven hydrocarbon basin.
