United Hydrocarbon International Corp. Retains Goodman Merchant Capital & Provides Information on its Lake Chad Oil Block in Chad

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- United Hydrocarbon International Corp. ("United") is pleased to report that a recent press release published by the government of Niger dated November 13, 2013, indicated that the China National Petroleum Company ("CNPC") has discovered significant oil reserves in their property covering the Agadem Basin in the country of Niger, which is adjacent to United's Lake Chad properties.

In addition, Robertson (UK) Limited, a well-known independent oil and gas consultant in the United Kingdom, has stated in a public report that the CNPC Agadem recoverable reserves in Niger on a proved, probable and possible basis was 1.18 million barrels of oil at the end of 2013 as well as "yet to find" oil potentially amounts an additional 834 million barrels of oil. The proven and probable component of the recoverable reserves estimates that number was estimated to be approximately 832 million barrels and the drilling was mostly based on 3D seismic.

The Agadem Basin is part of the prolific African Oil Rift System and extends from Niger into Chad. While CNPC owns part of the Niger portion of the basin, the Chad portion is mostly owned and permitted by United. There are more than 200 positive seismic prospects and leads identified by 2D seismic that United believes deserve drilling with the potential of outlining large pockets of oil in Chad, similar to what CNPC has outlined in Niger. United is working on the same Agadem geologic formation as CNPC, but on the Chad side of the Chad/Niger border.

United's Lake Chad block is greater than 1.8 million acres and has had 6 previous wells drilled by others providing 3 discoveries which contain in excess of 100 million barrels of recoverable oil as per an RPS Energy report undertaken for the Company in April 2012.

Accordingly, because of this positive event reported by its neighbour, United is in the process of arranging to extend its drilling program from its current locations in southern Chad where Management estimates drilling has identified approximately 50 million barrels of prospective resources, to its "Lake Chad" property in the north of Chad which hugs the Niger border next to the Agadem reserve reports recently released by CNPC.

United has retained Goodman Merchant Capital as a financial advisor.
