Zenith Energy has provided an update on recent corporate development activities.
The Company's management is currently reviewing a selection of oil production and development assets located in Texas, Oklahoma, and California in the United States of America. If any of these Potential Acquisitions are completed, the Company will make further announcements, and at this stage, no terms are finalised.
The Potential Acquisitions are all located in prolific oil and gas basins with proven petroleum systems.
It is expected that, if the Potential Acquisitions are completed, a production rate in the range of approximately 300-500 barrels of oil per day might be achieved upon completion.
Drilling activities can be performed at relatively low-cost and without significant delay in view of the ready availability of equipment. The average total depth of production wells in the project areas of the Potential Acquisitions ranges between 500 to 2,000 metres.
Andrea Cattaneo, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
'We are pleased to begin a new chapter in our corporate development as we potentially complete a series of revenue generating production and development acquisitions in the USA.
It is key to underline that this does not represent a change in strategy or a departure from our business development objectives in Africa, the Middle East and Italy.
However, in view of certain attractive opportunities to increase our daily production of oil in a stable jurisdiction at a time of favourable energy pricing, we have not hesitated in exploring these avenues whilst we await potential positive developments in respect of our publicly announced activities in other regions of focus.
We look forward with enthusiasm to providing more information on these potential transactions in due course.'
