Circle Oil Drilling Update in Morocco

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 4/23/2009, Location: Africa

Circle Oil plc the international oil and gas exploration and production company, is pleased to announce that drilling and logging operations in its DRJ-6 well in the Sebou licence in the Rharb Basin have been completed.

The well, the fourth in the Company's six well campaign in the Rharb, was drilled to a total depth of 1366 metres and has encountered 4 metres of gas bearing sands with significant gas readings recorded during drilling and interpreted from subsequent logging operations. Flow testing of the sands located close to the top of the Base Guebbas Formation has been postponed due to the need for specialized drilling materials and testing equipment. Obtaining these would have resulted in significant delays and unnecessary expenditure at this time, hence the Company's decision to postpone the test. These sands will be flow tested at a later date.

The drilling rig is now moving to commence drilling CGD-10, the fifth well of the campaign.

Commenting on this news, David Hough, CEO of Circle said:
"We are very pleased to have drilled and logged more gas bearing sands in our latest well and look forward to testing the well in due course. Spudding of the CGD-10 well is anticipated to commence as soon as the re-mobilisation of the drilling rig and equipment to the site has been successfully completed."

In accordance with the guidelines of the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange, Professor Chris Green, Chief Operating Officer of Circle Oil plc, an explorationist and geophysicist with over thirty years oil & gas industry experience, is a qualified person (as defined in the London Stock Exchange's Guidance Note for Mining and Oil and Gas companies) who has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this announcement.
