San Leon Secures Rig for Nida Trough Program

San Leon Energy's Polish subsidiary Vabush Energy Sp. z o. o. (Vabush) has signed with Poszukiwania Nafty i Gazu Jasło Sp. z o. o. (Jasło) to contract a rig for its upcoming two well program onshore Poland's Nida Trough. Both wells are planned to reach a total depth of 1,000 meters and test multiple targets on trend with the prolific Płowowice and Grobla oil fields. The first well, Chopin-1, is set to spud in early September immediately followed by the Belvedere-1 well. Vabush has secured land access agreements for the first location, Chopin-1, and is finalizing the Belvedere-1 agreements. Both Vabush and Jasło are finalizing the permitting process with plans to start building a location in early August.

Oisin Fanning, Executive Chairman of San Leon, commented, "San Leon is delighted to be on the cusp of a very intensive drilling program in both conventional oil and unconventional gas. The focus of San Leon's high-impact campaign in Poland will see the company drill up to three wells in September alone, weather permitting, and one of which is a shale gas prospect in the Baltic Basin. We look forward to updating the market in due course."
