The Company will receive US$0.29 million in cash proceeds for the sale of its PI and transfer of operatorship rights to Kiri. As previously reported, Kiri has expressed an interest in engaging the services of Oilex’s office on a contract basis to review field production, stabilize operations, and initiate field re-development of the Bhandut PSC in accordance with the FDP and this process is currently underway.

Oilex’s Managing Director Mr Joe Salomon said:

'While completion of this transaction has taken longer than anticipated, primarily due to the impact of Covid-19, a positive outcome has now been achieved. This sale provides Oilex with additional current and futurecash which will be applied to the existing Cambay and East Irish Sea projects. We wish Kiri success in their efforts on the Bhandut field.'
