Block Energy plc, the exploration and production company focused on Georgia, is pleased to provide a progress report on its Early Production Facility ("EPF") on the West Rustavi oil & gas field.

Construction of Block's gathering line between the EPF and the WR-38Z well has been completed on time and on budget. The pipeline has been successfully pressure tested at 6,600 kPa with no failures. The EPF is now ready to receive gas from wells WR-16aZ and WR-38Z, which will remain shut-in to conserve gas until the gas sales line has been constructed and gas sales can commence.

The Georgian independent gas company, Bago LLC, which has agreed to purchase the gas from the EPF, has received all required permits and is continuing with the construction of its gas sales line, to recover time lost consequent to the COVID-19 pandemic. Once the sales line is complete, oil production from West Rustavi will recommence and first sales of associated gas will be achieved. A further update will be provided once the sales line is complete.

Block Energy Chief Executive Officer, Paul Haywood, said:
"I am extremely pleased with the continued progress we have made with our EPF at West Rustavi, despite the operational challenges that COVID-19 has presented. Safely completing the assembly of the EPF and construction of the gathering line on time and budget is a testament to the relentless efforts applied by the team to deliver this important milestone. Focus is now on supporting Bago to ensure the safe and efficient installation of the sales pipeline, which will allow gas sales to commence.

We look forward to updating the market further as we approach Block's inaugural gas sales."
