RANGO ENERGY is an independent energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration,
exploitation, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas in the United States. We
are actively pursuing a strategy of partnering with land and leasehold owners to earn a working
interest in projects with sound geology, proven success, and near existing infrastructure to reduce
the capital risk associated with oil and gas exploration.
Recently we signed a Definitive Agreement with Hangtown Energy Inc., based in Carson City,
Nevada for a working interest on a total of over 12,000 acres located within three separate oil
projects in Central and Southern California. The three Project Areas are the: Kettleman Middle
Dome (KMD), the Elk Hills projects located just off Interstate 5 Freeway in the San Joaquin Valley,
and the South Tapo Canyon project located closer to Los Angeles in Simi Valley. All three project
areas are located within producing oil fields.
Rango will provide 100% of the development costs for an initial program of 2 wells per project
area, and will receive 100% of the production cash flow from Hangtowns interest until payback is
achieved. After payback, Rango’s working interest will revert to 75% of Hangtowns interest for the
life of the 6 wells. Further to the initial development program Rango and Hangtown Energy will
continue to drill and develop the Project areas jointly to maximize production at each site.

Rango will receive 100% of Hangtowns working interest in the production of the 6 Wells completed in the Initial
Program, after all drilling costs are recovered, our working interest will revert to 75% of the cash flow for the life

After the Initial Program, additional wells are to be drilled on a shared cost basis with Innex, the leaseholder and
the Hangtown-Rango Joint Venture. Our working interest will be 50% of the Hangtown-Rango Joint Venture.
