April 26, 2004 - Tanganyika Oil Company Ltd. (the "Company" or "Tanganyika") is pleased to announce that drilling of the Company's first horizontal well (OD #136) in the Shiranish Reservoir of the Oudeh Field has commenced. The well is currently drilling ahead in surface basalt. The first casing point is scheduled at 450 metres. The well will be drilled vertically to a depth of 1,100 metres at which point it will be kicked off horizontally for around 1,200 to 1,500 metres with a total drilled length of up to 3,000 metres. The well is expected to take 35 to 45 days for drilling and completion.

The initial program schedules two wells to be drilled into the top section of the Shiranish reservoir. However, a multiple well drilling pad has been constructed which has the capacity to accommodate the drilling of six wells, which should allow for efficient reserves recovery in this sector of the field.

Horizontal drilling technology offers the potential to significantly increase well productivity and reserve recovery by increasing the volume of the reservoir exposed for production from each well. Upon full development of the Oudeh Field, production levels are expected to reach 30,000 bopd.
