Zion Oil & Gas Signs Seismic Survey Contract

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/6/2011, Location: Middle East

Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement with the Geophysical Institute of Israel relating to the acquisition of approximately 15 kilometers of 2D seismic lines located within Zion’s Jordan Valley License area. The acquisition is expected to begin in the last quarter of 2011 or the first quarter of 2012 and the total cost of the program, including mobilization and demobilization, is projected to be approximately US$ 380,000.

Zion’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard Rinberg, said, “The planned seismic survey in our Jordan Valley License area is being carried out in order to add to our existing data and increase the chance of success of exploratory wells in our petroleum exploration efforts. The proposed seismic acquisition is intended to help us to evaluate the next steps we need to take to identify one or more prospects within our Jordan Valley License area.

I am optimistic about the possibility of recovering hydrocarbons within our license areas, onshore Israel, especially due to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report, published in April 2010, containing their assessment that there may be 1.7 billion barrels of recoverable oil and 122 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas in the Levant Basin, as all of Zion’s exploration rights fall within the area of the Levant Basin.”

Zion’s common stock trades on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol “ZN” and Zion’s warrants trade under the symbols: “ZNWAW”, “ZNWAZ” and “ZNWAL”.

Zion Oil & Gas, a Delaware corporation, explores for oil and gas in Israel in areas located onshore between Haifa and Tel Aviv. It currently holds three petroleum exploration licenses: the Joseph License (on approximately 83,272 acres) and the Asher-Menashe License (on approximately 78,824 acres) between Netanya, in the south, and Haifa, in the north, and the Jordan Valley License (on approximately 55,845 acres), just south of the Sea of Galilee. The total license area amounts to approximately 218,000 acres.
