Roc Oil Ltd.

Following the announcement by Nexus that it intended to accept ROC's takeover offer for Anzon Australia Ltd. (AZA), ROC has now received acceptances from Nexus in respect of its holding of 71.3 million shares (19.2%) in AZA.

ROC and its associates now have a relevant interest of 89.64% and, assuming it obtains a relevant interest of more than 90% in the next few days, intends to close the takeover offer at 7.00pm (AEST) on Monday, October 6, 2008.

Commenting on Nexus' acceptance of the takeover offer, ROC's Chief Executive Officer, Bruce Clement, stated, "This is clearly a positive outcome for ROC and AZA shareholders. As Operator, ROC is focused on delivering the Basker Manta Gummy Development Project in 2010, which is forecast to increase ROC's production by over 100% to in excess of 20,000 BOEPD."
