Viking Investments Group, Inc. Announces Letter of Intent With Tanager Energy Inc. Regarding Proposed Investment in Tanager and Purchase of Working Interest in an Oil & Gas Project

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Viking Investments Group, Inc. ("Viking") (OTCQB: VKIN) is pleased to announce it has executed another Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Tanager Energy Inc. ("Tanager") (TSX VENTURE: TAN), which supersedes the LOI signed by Viking and Tanager on or about May 16, 2014 (the "May LOI").

Pursuant to the May LOI, which was announced on May 22, 2014, Viking proposed to subscribe for 3,125,000 shares of Tanager for an aggregate price of $250,000 (the "Subscription"). After several discussions between representatives of both companies, the parties opted to briefly postpone the closing of the Subscription to explore additional, long-term business arrangements between Viking and Tanager. As a result of such discussions and Viking's increased confidence and belief in Tanager's executive team and overall business plan, Viking intends, in addition to the Subscription, to provide additional capital to Tanager in exchange for a 50% working interest in an oil and gas property located in Alberta, Canada (the "WI Purchase"). Tanager will operate and manage the subject property in accordance with an Operating Agreement pursuant to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Landman Operating Procedure, using Tanager's existing operating permits and liability insurance.

The Subscription, which is non-brokered, and the closing of the WI Purchase are scheduled to be completed on or before July31, 2014 and are subject to the normal approvals by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Tanager is a Lethbridge, Alberta based corporation engaged in the exploration for oil and gas and minerals, and the company's common shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "TAN."
