Aegean Energy, the only operator of Oil & Gas in Greece, announces the Farming-in of its first international exploration license in the Gulf of Suez in Egypt.

Aegean Energy through a farm out agreement acquired 100% of the concession rights of the East Magawish Block from Thani Egypt East Magawish B.V. and assumed the operatorship of the Block.

Mr. Mathios Rigas, President & Managing Director of Aegean Energy commented: “We are excited to have been awarded out first exploration license outside Greece in a country with long history in the upstream sector.”

- Drilled 2 Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) wells in Greece, including the longest well ever drilled in Greece.

- Brought on stream the Epsilon field, the first new oil field to be developed in Greece for 14 years.

- Increased the company’s production to 4,000 bbl/day from 1,000 one year ago.

- Acquired 2000 Km of 2D seismic offshore Northern Greece and identified new exploration targets in the area.
