Tendrara Update

Sound Energy, the Mediterranean focused upstream gas company, is pleased to announce the mobilisation of the National 110 UE (1500 HP) traditional rig for the upcoming first well at the Company's Tendrara licence area, onshore Morocco.  The rig has been mobilised from Mauritania and is expected to arrive on site in early March 2016.

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has now received final approval from the Moroccan National Environmental Committee for the first and second Tendrara wells. There are no other approvals required before drilling can commence.

Civil works on site at Tendrara, including the upgrading of local infrastructure and the preparation of the camp and the two well pad areas, continue ahead of the rig's arrival.
