Update re Badile


Sound Energy, the African and European focused upstream gas company, is pleased to provide an update on the drilling of the Badile exploration well, onshore Italy.


The Badile well has reached the primary Conchodon dolomitic reservoir target at 4,375m measured depth ("MD").  Significant gas shows were encountered at 4,375m MD. Gas chromatograph data indicated C1 (methane) to C5 (pentane) gas components.


Drilling in the 8.5" hole section has now been temporarily paused, ahead of running the 7" liner, after which drilling will continue to the bottom of the reservoir. The Company cautions that gas shows, despite being a positive initial indication, should not be considered conclusive until drilling and logging is complete.


A further announcement will be made, as appropriate, in due course.
