George Maxwell, CEO of Eland Oil & Gas commented:

"Achieving a consistent level of production at Opuama has been the main objective of the management so we are very pleased with the positive developments the Company is making.

This consistency of production is now delivering the value from OML 40 while also allowing access to debt funding. This is hugely beneficial to our shareholders as it allows the Company to fully develop our assets without requiring any further equity funding.

Furthermore, the combination of a lower cost environment and our 5 year petroleum profits tax holiday on OML 40 means our netback per barrel remains significant even in the current economic environment of falling oil prices."
