In addition, Sound has appointed Leonardo Spicci, previously its managing director in Italy, as the new executive vice president of development and production.

"This is a pivotal time for the company as we initiate the drilling of our second well at Tendrara, with a view to proving a sub-horizontal drilling concept, finalize our plans for the outpost well at Tendrara, with a view to proving Tendrara's multi trillion cubic feet potential, and initiate the countdown to our second strategic play –Badile,” said James Parsons, Sound Energy's CEO.
“I am extremely pleased to welcome Brian Mitchener, a proven world class hydrocarbon finder. The Sound Energy team now has the depth of management to handle simultaneous wells and to ensure robust technical assurance at key decision gates,” he added.
