Andrew Benitz, CEO of Jersey Oil & Gas, commented:

'We are very pleased to have now formally completed our recently announced block awards in the 31 SLR. These awards have leapfrogged JOG from being an exploration focused business into an Operator of a major new area hub development project, with estimated discovered mean recoverable resources net to JOG of in excess of 120 million barrels of oil equivalent ('mmboe'), together with significant upside potential to tie in further resources within the GBA. This represents a very exciting new chapter for JOG and we look forward to working with all our stakeholders as we progress the Field Development Plan ('FDP') for this transformational project.'
