Block III, Albertine Graben, DRC - Update

Successful completion of airborne gravity and magnetic survey


SacOil announces that Total E&P RDC ("Total"), the Operator of Block III, Albertine Graben in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has successfully conducted an airborne gravity and magnetic survey on the northern part of the Block III area, located outside the Virunga National Park. SacOil holds a 12.5% effective interest in Block III.

Preliminary processing of the Block III gravity and magnetic data broadly confirms the trend observed in the adjacent concessions in Uganda. It is expected that more detailed processing will identify features similar to those that were found to be oil-bearing in Uganda.

Planning for the acquisition of a 2D seismic survey, to map potential oil and gas prospects, is underway and Total has initiated a tendering process. Subject to the positive identification of structures that may contain oil and gas, Total intends to drill an exploration well, in order to determine the presence of oil and/or gas and the potential commercial viability of Block III.

In terms of the Farm-in and Joint Venture Agreements on Block III, Total bears all the costs associated with the acquisition of the airborne gravity and magnetic survey and will carry SacOil through the seismic survey, any subsequent exploration and appraisal wells, up to a final investment decision.
