CGX Energy Inc. has entered into a seismic contract with Prospector PTE. Ltd. to conduct a 3,116.74 km2 3D seismic survey on the Company's 100% owned Demerara Block, offshore Guyana. The contract terms are attractive and represent one of the most extensive 3D seismic studies ever conducted in this area.

The aggregate cost of this seismic survey will be approximately U.S.$17.9 million with 40% of the costs (or approximately U.S.$7 million) being paid to Prospector by way of issuance of 15,534,310 common shares (the "Common Shares") in the capital of CGX Energy (the "Subscription") and the remainder payable in cash twelve months after the conclusion of the seismic survey. Prior to the Subscription, Prospector did not own any Common Shares and upon closing of the Subscription, Prospector will own approximately 16.6% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares. The Company expects the seismic survey to be completed within approximately 60 days following mobilization.

Dewi Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented:

"We are very pleased to have Prospector as a significant equity partner in the Company. This transaction offers the Company the opportunity to engage a world-class geophysical services firm while also preserving cash in the short-term."

"The Guyana-Suriname Basin is an exciting new frontier that has increasingly demonstrated the potential for hydrocarbons and is gaining significant international exploration attention. By brining together CGX Energy and Prospector, two companies with extensive experience in frontier basins, we believe we are creating an opportunity for success in this demanding region."

Prospector will deploy their modern 12-streamer 3D seismic vessel (known as the "R/V BGP Prospector") that was specifically constructed for serving the high-end 3D, 4D and wide azimuth marine seismic survey market. The vessel is outfitted with ION's DigiSTREAMER seismic data acquisition system. It has a solid gel design that reduces the risk and noise during broad bandwidth data recording.

The Demerara Block is comprised of an area spanning 3,953 km2 in the highly prospective Guyana-Suriname Basin. The initial phase 1 work commitments are comprised of a 3D seismic survey consisting of a minimum of 1,000 km2 and the associated processing and interpretation.

The 3D seismic survey will cover substantially all of the Demerara Block and will provide detailed information on the reservoir distribution and structural integrity of the current leads. Ultimately, this 3D seismic survey will allow CGX Energy to better rank its prospects in the Guyana-Suriname Basin and define future drilling locations.

Suresh Narine, Co-Chairman of the Company, commented:

"CGX Energy has an extensive exploration track record in Guyana. Once again, we have illustrated our commitment to Guyana by significantly exceeding the minimum work commitments on the Demerara Block." The Common Shares issued to Prospector will be subject to a four month hold period and 6,254,245 of such Common Shares will only be issued to Prospector pending receipt of the final approval of the transaction from the TSX Venture Exchange.
