Eland Oil & Gas PLC, an oil & gas production and development company operating in West Africa with an initial focus on Nigeria, through its joint-venture subsidiary Elcrest Exploration and Production Nigeria Ltd ("Elcrest"), is pleased to announce the following update on the Opuama-8 infill well on Opuama Field, OML 40.

Opuama-8 has been drilled to a total true vertical depth of 8,071 feet and the final casing string has been run and cemented.

The well encountered seven oil-bearing reservoirs, including the C2000 reservoir, the first time that oil has been encountered in a shallow 'C' reservoir. Total net pay, in the seven oil-bearing reservoirs, is approximately 160 feet apparent vertical thickness. The next planned Opuama infill well, Opuama-9, will test the four 'C' reservoirs in a crestal location.

The three target zones, D3500, D4000 and D5000 reservoirs, will be perforated and a long-term production test carried out on the D5000 and D3500 reservoirs. Initial production from the test is expected in January.

The expected initial production rate remains in line with previous guidance of between 5,000 and 7,000bopd (gross).

George Maxwell, CEO of Eland, commented:

"Together with our partner NPDC, we are pleased with the progress on the Opuama-8 well, which will further increase Opuama production and cash generation. Having confirmed oil in the C2000 reservoir, considerably de-risks our testing of the C reservoirs planned on Opuama-9, the next well to be drilling in January. Although the primary production target for Opuama-9 remains the D1000 reservoir."
