Zenith Energy has signed a third MOU with a company incorporated in Kazakhstan to evaluate the potential acquisition of an oil production and development asset.

The Seller holds a 100% interest in an oil production and development asset located in the Atyrau Region of Kazakhstan.

The Potential Acquisition formerly produced from wells drilled in 2008 at a rate of approx. 200 barrels of oil per day prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Production is currently suspended. The Potential Acquisition was re-tendered by the local authorities, free of any legal or financial encumbrances, in August 2023.

The purpose of the MOU is to formalise a framework whereby Zenith's interest in the Potential Acquisition may be completed subject to the completion of a rigorous technical and financial due diligence.

According to the terms of the MOU, commercial terms for the Potential Acquisition, if agreed between the parties, are to be formalised by way of a share purchase agreement on or before November 30, 2023. 

The 2P (proven and probable) reserves of the Potential Acquisition have been quantified in the amount of approx. 5 million barrels of oil, registered with the Kazakhstan State Oil Balance List. This evaluation has not been performed in accordance with Canadian securities laws, specifically the COGE Handbook and National Instrument 51-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities.

Andrea Cattaneo, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

'We are pleased to have signed an MOU for the third potential acquisition opportunity we intend to evaluate in Kazakhstan, located in the geographic vicinity of the first potential acquisition opportunity announced to the market on September 4, 2023.

'Our strategy, to be achieved through our acquisition campaign in the USA and Kazakhstan, is to create a profitable, revenue generating energy production portfolio with significant untapped potential for long-term development in assets with uncomplicated geologies situated in commercially favourable jurisdictions.'
