White Nile Ltd announced an update on it activities in Ethiopia, where it has a Joint Study Agreement with the Ethiopian Government’s Petroleum Operations Division, over the prospective East African Rift system in the southwest of the country.

The Company’s area of interest is in Southern Ethiopia in the area known as the Southern Rift Basins. As part of the exploration programme, ground geophysical surveys, including magneto-tellurics and gravity, have now been completed in the Omo River area to the north of Lake Turkana. This data is being used to determine basin disposition and depth in this critical area of interference between three proven petroliferous basin trends known as the Turkana Depression. Early results of the interpretation are encouraging and have revealed deep basins, potentially containing sedimentary section similar to that of the petroliferous Muglad and Melut Basins of Southern Sudan.

The next stage in the development of the Company’s Ethiopian project is to finalise the interpretation of the data collected, which will identifying the areas that White Nile wishes to translate into a PSA. Following this the Company will design a reconnaissance 2D seismic programme to identify drill targets.

Additionally, White Nile would like to update the market on developments in Southern Sudan in relation to Block Ba. Company Chairman Phil Edmonds recently returned from a meeting in Juba, the capital of Southern Sudan, where he met with the Vice President of the Government of Southern Sudan (“GOSS”), Dr Riek Machar, and Paul Mayom, the Minister of Interior and Chairman of Nile Petroleum Corp (“NilePet”), the Government of Southern Sudan’s state owned petroleum company. Both the Vice President and the Chairman of Nilepet were members of the Joint Executive Committee of Northern and Southern Sudanese representatives recently convened to discuss oil and other issues in Sudan as a whole. Both men confirmed the proposed formation of a new oil consortium with regard to Block B in Southern Sudan comprising NilePet, White Nile, Total SA, Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company and Sudan National Petroleum Corporation (“SudaPet”), the state owned oil company of northern Sudan.
