Afren plc and its partner Oriental Energy Resources Limited (“Oriental”) are pleased to announce the signing of a drilling contract for the Transocean Adriatic IX jack-up drilling rig for the Ebok Field oil development offshore outh East Nigeria.

Afren and its partner, Oriental, announce that a rig contract has been signed with Transocean, commencing in September 2009. The Adriatic IX jack up drilling rig has been secured at a rate of US$97,000 per day for the first 250 days of operations, with a rate of US$85,000 per day there-after, based on a 425 day extension.

The Adriatic IX rig will be used to carry out an extensive drilling campaign at the Ebok Field located in OML 67, offshore Nigeria. Pending Government approval of the formal Field Development Plan, Ebok Field development will commence with the drilling of six horizontal production wells and one vertical water injection well. Two appraisal wells to test the additional upside potential within the Ebok West Fault Block and D2 Southern Lobe of the Field will also be drilled.

The Ebok Field Development Plan (“FDP”) has been submitted to the Nigerian Department of Petroleum Resources (“DPR”), and contract negotiations are at an advanced stage for field production facilities and requisite infrastructure. A full and comprehensive outline of the Ebok field and FDP was made at the recent Ebok Capital Markets day hosted by Afren on 30th June 2009.
