Tendrara Development Funding
Sound Energy, the European / Mediterranean focused upstream gas company, is pleased to announce that it has received a non-binding Expression of Interest from Oil & Gas Investment Fund ("OGIF"), its partner on the Tendrara licence, expressing OGIF's interest in funding, building and operating a new pipeline connecting Tendrara to the Gazoduc Maghreb Europe (GME) pipeline. The cost of the new Tendrara pipeline is currently estimated to be approximately US$50 million.
