Africa Energy Corp. (Africa Energy) has entered into a farmout agreement (the "Farmout Agreement") with a subsidiary of Pancontinental Oil & Gas N.L. (Pancontinental) pursuant to which the Company will acquire a 10% participating interest in Petroleum Exploration Licence 37 offshore, Republic of Namibia (PEL 37). Under the terms of the Farmout Agreement and similar to the terms of Pancontinental's participating interest, the Company's participating interest share of all joint venture costs, including the drilling of the first exploration well on PEL 37, will be fully carried through the current exploration period by a joint venture partner. The Company has agreed to pay Pancontinental US$1.7 million at close of the Farmout Agreement, and an additional US$4.8 million upon spud of the first exploration well. Completion of the Farmout Agreement is subject to receipt of all requisite government approvals, other regulatory approvals, third party consents, partner approvals, and finalization of due diligence procedures.

James Phillips, President and Chief Executive Officer for Africa Energy commented, "I'm very pleased to announce our acquisition of a 10% fully carried interest in PEL 37, offshore Namibia. The block contains a series of extensive base of slope fan prospects with significant combined resource potential. The fans directly overlie a mature oil-prone source rock of Aptian age, which was recently proven by the 2013 Murombe-1 and Wingat-1 wells in which the latter well recovered light oil. Africa Energy's technical team has experience in these West African Cretaceous fan plays and we look forward to the drilling of a well in this play."
