Eastern Morocco : Commencement of Drilling at TE-9


Sound Energy, the Moroccan focused upstream gas company, is pleased to confirm that the drilling at TE-9, the first well of a planned three exploration well campaign in Eastern Morocco, is intended to commence later today. 


The TE-9 well will test the A1 prospect in the Company's Greater Tendrara permit and is  located approximately 19 kilometres to the northwest of the recently awarded Tendrara production concession.


The TE-9 main well bore will be drilled and logged to a true vertical depth of approximately 3,022 metres, is intended to drill both the TAGI as the primary target and the underlying Paleozoic as the secondary target and is expected to take between 35 to 45 days. 


The Company looks forward to updating investors on achievement of each of two casing points (13 3/8" casing and 9 5/8" casing), the setting of a 7" liner (if required) and achievement of total depth.  Investors will be able to observe live operations through the Company's webcam, available on the Company's website.


Further announcements will be made, as appropriate, in due course.
