Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 1, 2012, Ring Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a letter agreement (the “Agreement”) with Patriot Royalty & Land, LLC (“Patriot Royalty”) to purchase an interest in certain oil and gas leases as disclosed in a report on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on March 8, 2012.   Effective April 10, 2012, the parties amended the Agreement to allow a second closing date for up to 45 days from April 10, 2012, to permit Patriot Royalty the opportunity to secure an additional leasehold interest for which the Company would pay a proportional amount at the original purchase price of $700 per net mineral acre acquired by Patriot Royalty and assigned to the Company.  We anticipate that if Patriot Royalty is successful in securing an additional 8.5% net leasehold interest in the leases, the Company would pay approximately an additional $9,600 for this additional interest.

Item 8.01

Other Events.

On April 11, 2012, we completed the purchase of an interest in oil and gas leases through the assignment of certain Oil, Gas and Mineral Leases located in Andrews County, Texas, and containing approximately 161.4 acres of land.  The assignment was from Patriot Royalty and Land, LLC for which we paid $100,368.  Our interest in the leases represents approximately an 89.5% leasehold interest.  There are no producing wells on these leases.
