AUSTIN, Texas, March 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rockdale Resources Corporation (OTC QB: BBLS), an Austin, Texas-based oil production and exploration and drilling company, announced today the drilling of three new oil wells on the Company's existing 623 acre lease in the Minerva-Rockdale Field, approximately 50 miles northeast of Austin.

The Company has recently raised new equity capital in connection with its previously announced private placement of the company's common stock.   Some of the proceeds from this equity financing are being used for this immediate drilling of additional oil wells on the Company's current lease.

"The Company also announced that these three new oil wells will add to a combined total of seven new oil wells drilled since Marc S. Spezialy assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. Spezialy stated, "We are thrilled with the results from the new wells brought online during the 4th quarter of 2013 and we are excited for the Company to be continuing its expected success on our existing acreage in the Minerva-Rockdale Field."

Upon the completion of the drilling of these next three oil wells, the Company plans to drill up to four more new oil wells, in addition to the three new oil wells for which we are commencing drilling now and are announcing today.  All seven of these wells are and will be drilled, upon our existing acreage in the Minerva-Rockdale Field in the coming months.  The Company expects to complete its previously announced equity financing shortly to facilitate the drilling of the next four oil wells.  While we cannot guarantee, we expect these next seven oil wells to collectively produce significant positive cash flow for the Company, providing it further flexibility and opportunities to continue rapidly growing its business and creating shareholder value.

Going forward the Company intends to provide regular updates regarding its oil production and looks forward to initiating an investment community visibility program in the months ahead.
