Business Description

Marksmen is an emerging energy company with an initial focus on exploring and developing light oil assets in Ohio.

We are bringing modern exploration technology to under-explored areas which have had significant historic oil producrtion and which have not seen any concentrated industry activity for decades.

Marksmen's management team has extensive experience in the profitable development of old oil fields in Ohio and the identification of previously overlooked resource opportunities. Marksmen energy plans to be an industry leader in Ohio.

Hocking County - On November 27, 2017 Marksmen announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire a 40% working interest ("WI") in a horizontal well drilling program operated by Hocking Hills Energy and Well Services LLC ("HHE"), targeting the Clinton Sandstone formation. Today, Marksmen is announcing that it has agreed to acquire an additional 20% WI from HHE to increase Marksmen's WI share in the well to 60%. The access road and drill pad are currently under construction and nearing completion. The drilling rig is expected to be on location in approximately one week and we anticipate running in approximately 500 feet of 9 5/8 inch surface casing and cementing it to surface on or before December 24, 2017. Immediately after the Holiday season, drilling will continue to the well's target depth of 2,900 feet and then a horizontal section of 3,000 feet in the Clinton Sandstone formation.

Marksmen is extremely close to achieving critical mass as an operating entity. Even prior to the segment of news listed just above MKSEF had significantly growing sales and projects underway. In the November 20, 2017 Press Release Marksmen also announced that a Major Oil Refiner in the U.S., Ergon Production, Inc. owns a 25% interest in this newest project and all projects done on the surrounding land. The contract also calls for Ergon to purchase and remove from the property all oil produced at the then current price per barrel from MKSEF.

52 week high .20 on 12/12/2107 the stock likely dropped from this level for 2 reasons. Year end selling for tax purposes and the company's announcement on 12/12/2017 of a Private Placement being done which financed the additional 20% of the project that MKSEF now owns. Making MKSEF the control owner of 60%.

OTC Markets reports a short of 49,182 shares as of 9/15/2017

Float (shares in public hands) about 24,900,000

Shares outstanding about 83,700,000: the difference is held by insiders. Most of whom have financed the company since inception.

On 12/12/2017 the stock hit a multi-year high of .20. On 12/19/2017 the company announced that the Private Placement was closed and over-subscribed by over 25%. Thus the stock should be returning to higher highs in the near term as the Company executes and begins pumping oil from its'newest site as it has announced is only weeks away.

MARKSMEN ENERGY INC. ( "MAH") , (MAH - TSXV; MKSEF - OTCQB) , is a positive cash flow E & P Company which has been active in OHIO, USA, for the last 6.5 years. MAH's technical team has focused on bringing new technology to Ohio for exploitation of Ohio's untapped oil and gas resources , which are almost exclusively owned by some 6000 small , several generation old, private, family operating companies.

MAH has acquired a 40% joint venture ("JV") working interest, with an option to increase that interest to a 60% JV interest, in the drilling of an initial Clinton Horizontal Well ( "CHW") on leases in Hocking County, Ohio. The JV will have an average of an 87.5% NRI in the leases . A major oil producer/refiner that buys, and is focused on, Ohio's light, sweet oil is taking a 25% JV interest. The drilling program will commence in December 2017.

Initial AFE cost per well is $1,400,000 drilled and completed. The initial proposed program contemplates 2 CHW's, with 3000' lateral sections and 15 multi-stage hydraulic fracturing completions, from the same drill pad. Hocking Hills Energy and Well Services LLC. ("HHE") will be Operator. The JV has retained geologists, engineers, and hydraulic fracturing completion experts that have drilled and completed more than one hundred horizontal wells in a similar sandstone formation, across the Ohio border, to the south, in Kentucky, as well as several in Ohio, in the last year. MAH is adding technical, geological, engineering expertise from our team of professionals. The JV believes that initial production rates will be in the 300-500 BOD range.

Ohio's Clinton Sandstone Formation has had historic oil production exceeding 250,000,000 BO from some 50,000 vertical wells drilled since the 1800's.

Based on an analysis of hundreds of historic vertical Clinton wells (some completed with only nitroglycerine shots, with no frac) the "type" horizontal well that the JV expects to drill has projected life of well production of 480,000 BOE or $24,000,000 in oil and gas (at $50/B). The JV has contracted to sell its oil to JV participant Ergon Production Inc., at the daily WTI price per barrel of oil.

Important for MAH, is that the CHW's are on a lease that was never drilled by Clinton conventional vertical drillers. However, the "virgin" lease is surrounded by leases that have been vertically drilled pre-1960. Some initial production rates of vertical wells were as high as 200 BOD. The JV wells are expected to have "no depletion" and virgin pressures.

The JV has both a nearby water injection well and a gas tie in to a natural gas pipeline owned by Columbia gas.

The JV has located 10-12 strategic CHW locations on existing leases (currently 7000 acres) and estimates that another 15-20 CHW's can be drilled on its leases, in Hocking County.

In addition, the JV is negotiating with additional leaseholders on leases which have historic Clinton oil/gas production from vertical wells.

The Clinton sandstone formation is present in several areas of Eastern Ohio. Most Clinton oil fields have had extensive vertical wildcat drilling. The majority were completed with "nitroglycerine shots" and therefore, a minimal amount of oil (under 5%) was recovered by these vertical wells.

In 2016 and 2017 two large E & P companies (EnerVest Operating LLC. ("EnerVest")) and US ENERGY OH LLC. ("US ENERGY") have drilled several CHW's into two of these fields, 100 and 150 miles north of MAH JV leases, and in Clinton sandstone formations which have less porosity and permeability than is present on MAH leases.

EnerVest has drilled its wells into the extensively vertically drilled East Canton oil field where 3,100 of these old wells continue to produce oil. EnerVest believes that notwithstanding this extensive vertical drilling, 90% of the oil remains in place. EnerVest has proven that the Clinton sandstone is conducive to hydraulic fracturing. EnerVest states that their oil/gas recoveries per well are 10 times that of a vertical well and they estimate recoveries per well at 140,000 BO and 160 MCF of natural gas.

US ENERGY has recently permitted an additional 10 CHW locations.

Initial production rates of 300 BOED are being achieved.

THE PLAN for MAH/MKSEF : Acquire in excess of 100,000 acres of leasehold interest; Drill hundreds of CHW's ; list on NASDAQ and initiate M&A Activities


•Extensive 2D and 3D seismic and historic vertical well control allowing for detailed prospect generation

•15-30 identified horizontal locations, to start with

•Shallow depth equates to lower drilling costs

•Low operating costs

•Low royalties (12.5%)

•High Net Backs and oil sales at WTI

•Experienced technical team

•Working on becoming listed on a US stock exchange
