Driver has been elected President of the Corporation, effective March 17, 2014, to replace Mr. Fred Zeidman who has been serving as Interim President subsequent to the termination of the previous President by Aztec's Board.

He served as President of HYD Resources Corporation, a domestic subsidiary of a public oil firm from 2005-2008, and then as CEO, President and Director of Duma Energy Corporation, a public oil and gas firm, from 2009 to 2014. Mr. Driver has an undergraduate degree from Excelsior College and an MBA and MSA from Northeastern University.

About Aztec Oil & Gas, Inc.

Aztec is an experienced oil and gas exploration, development and production company focusing on Texas, plus other areas of the U.S.  Its interests are highly diversified between development drilling and exploration drilling; however, when it, intermittently, offers drilling/production partnerships, Aztec focuses primarily on Texas shallow, lower risk, development and step out oil wells. When offered, such programs/partnerships are placed, with accredited investor partners, only through FINRA registered Broker Dealers, and Registered Investment Advisors; and, are focused primarily on oil, with natural gas normally being the secondary target of production.

Aztec has been in the oil/gas business since 2004, and entered the sponsored drilling program industry in 2006.  Over the next two and one half years, beginning in late 2006, Aztec restricted itself to only three small, very limited Appalachian, natural gas drilling partnerships. Such was done in order to give the firm time to study and become fully familiar with the nuances of the sponsored drilling program industry before expanding to the Company's full capabilities.  In the summer of 2008, Aztec announced it was discontinuing any natural gas drilling in Appalachia, and was ready to substantially expand its sponsored drilling program activities, along with its other activities, primarily for oil in Texas.

Since 2008, Aztec has focused almost all of its sponsored drilling/production partnerships on oil wells in Texas when the programs are offered.  In addition to its early, initial three small Appalachian natural gas drilling partnerships mentioned above Aztec has, intermittently, sponsored and closed a significant number of other drilling/production partnerships (all of the latter, as stated, focused primarily on drilling for oil in Texas).  Aztec Energy LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aztec Oil & Gas Inc., is the Managing General Partner of all Aztec drilling partnerships. Another wholly-owned Aztec parent company subsidiary, Aztec Drilling & Operating, LLC, is the drilling contractor and contractual well operator for such partnerships.  Through its own participation, contributions and coverage, Aztec owns a 30% interest in all of its drilling/production partnerships.  In general clarification of its activities, in addition to its own direct corporate participations in industry partner wells, Aztec sometimes sponsors development drilling/rework/production programs/partnerships which include significant tax benefits. When sponsored, such programs/partnerships are offered only through FINRA Registered Broker Dealers and Registered Investment Advisors to Accredited Investors.  Aztec's sponsored drilling/rework/production programs, when offered, focus primarily on shallow oil/gas drilling, are considered unique, and also incorporate a sophisticated exit strategy for investors. Aztec presently has interests in approximately 400 wells.
