Update re Gas Sales Agreement
Sound Energy, the Moroccan focused upstream gas company, confirms continued positive discussions with Morocco's Office National de l'Electricité et de l'Eau Potable ("ONEE") and the Moroccan Minister of Energy in relation to a gas sales agreement ("GSA"), pursuant to which The Minister of Energy has confirmed his intention that the GSA covers all of the gas to be produced from the recently awarded Tendrara Production Concession, onshore Morocco. The GSA is a critical next step that Sound Energy and its partners require ahead of taking a Final Investment Decision on the development.
The Tendrara development has the potential to offer Morocco both a new strategic domestic gas supply source, thereby reducing its dependency on Algerian imports, and significant new gas transportation infrastructure in the East of Morocco connected to the Gazoduc Maghreb Europe pipeline.
