Successful perforation of well C-26 in Azerbaijan

Zenith Energy Ltd. ("Zenith" or the "Company") (LSEZENTSX.VZEE), the dual listed international oil & gas production company operating the largest onshore oilfield in Azerbaijan, is pleased to announce the successful perforation of a new, unexploited production zone in well C-26 in the Jafarli field.

Following the perforation, well C-26 is flowing at a rate of 70 BOPD. It is important to note that well C-26 was previously not producing. 

The successful perforation was undertaken following the identification of 10 metres of unexploited payzone between the depth of 3618-3628 metres in the Middle Eocene geological structure.  

This operation is part of the Company's strategy, announced on September 6, 2017, to identify and perforate new productive zones in a number of underperforming wells with significant untapped production potential.

Mike Palmer, Chief Operating Officer, Zenith Aran, the Company's Azerbaijan-based fully owned subsidiary, commented:

"This is a very positive development that confirms the strong potential of our rehabilitation operations in Azerbaijan.  The identification and perforation of new production zones in a number of underperforming wells is a very important part of Zenith Aran's field development strategy between now and March 31, 2018.

It is particularly important to note that well C-26 was not producing and that we have achieved a very significant increase in daily production revenue from this well, from 0 BOPD to 70 BOPD.

I very much look forward to implementing other parts of our field rehabilitation programme announced yesterday, specifically the workover of Z-28 in the Zardab field.  This will be our most technically demanding well intervention so far, but equally potentially the most rewarding."
