EnerGulf Gets Extension to Pay Signing Bonus on Block OPL 252
EnerGulf reports that, subject to regulatory approval, it has amended the price to $3.50 per unit for up to 500,000 units. All other terms of the private placement remain unchanged.
With respect to Nigeria Oil Prospecting License ("OPL") 252 (the "block"), the EnerGulf/Derock JV has been informed that it has been granted an extension until January 30, 2006 to pay the required signature bonus. EnerGulf has licensed the Veritas 3D seismic data covering the block, and as technical partner of the EnerGulf/Derock JV, is conducting a continuing evaluation, which is developing estimates as to the hydrocarbon potential of the block. Such analysis is being performed by EnerGulf's geological and geophysical consultants, Digital Prospectors, under the direction of Dr. Bill St. John, EnerGulf's Senior Advisor for African Exploration. EnerGulf is currently engaged in ongoing discussions with various parties, including qualified potential industry partners, regarding the future of the block. Developments will be made public as appropriate.
Commenting on current events, Jeff Greenblum, Chairman of
EnerGulf's Board of Directors said "We are in discussions with various
parties regarding the future operations and financial obligations that
are associated with signing OPL 252's Production Sharing Contract
(PSC). Progress has been made to date and these discussions are
ongoing. However, an opportunity of this size and nature, presents
complex issues and no assurances can be made at this time regarding
the signing of the PSC."
