Zenith Energy has made a binding offer to wholly acquire a company holding a 100% interest in two hydrocarbons production and development concessions in Tunisia, which has now been accepted.


The Offer is represented by a mix of cash payments and assumption of debt by Zenith for a total consideration of approx. USD$200,000.


The Potential Acquisitions currently produce approx. 80-100 barrels of condensate per day with 5.5-6 MMSCF of natural gas, which is re-injected into the formation, from the first Potential Acquisition concession, and approx. 25 barrels of oil per day from the second Potential Acquisition concession. One well within the first Potential Acquisition concession suffered tubing string damage and has been temporarily shut-in, having had a stabilised production range of between approx. 500-600 barrels of oil per day prior to production being suspended. The low oil price environment during 2020 and the material investment required to restore production from this well have prevented the necessary repair work from being implemented. 

A recent study carried out by seller in respect of the second Potential Acquisition, comprising production, cost-effectiveness and feasibility evaluations, concluded that the current production of approx. 25 barrels of oil per day could be increased to up to approx. 200 barrels of oil per day via drilling activities. The seller did not implement the recommendations of the study due to the low oil price environment during 2020 and the emergence of financing difficulties.

Terms and Expiry of Potential Acquisitions

Both Potential Acquisitions will be acquired with a 100% working interest.

The Company can confirm that the Potential Acquisitions are due to expire during the years 2033 and 2034 respectively.

Andrea Cattaneo, Chief Executive Officer of Zenith, commented:

'We are very pleased to continue further enriching our portfolio of oil and gas production and development assets in Tunisia, especially with these Potential Acquisitions which contain significant untapped potential and opportunity for value creation.

We expect to shortly achieve a daily production in excess of approx. 1,000 barrels of oil per day by way of our recently announced acquisitions, as well as the near-term development activities we intend to perform in these assets, which would very favourably position the Company in terms of profitability in the current oil price environment.

I look forward to sharing further information on the Potential Acquisitions once they are completed.'
