Sound Energy, the Mediterranean focused upstream oil and gas company, is pleased to announce signature of a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") for the rig for the forthcoming Badile exploration well.

The Company has signed an MOU with Pergemina SpA for the use of the 3000 HP EMSCO C3 No.29 rig, which is already in Italy. The rig will be available within 4 months of signature of the contract, which is now under discussion. The terms of the rig will result in a further Euro 0.5 million reduction to the previously announced expected drill costs and will include the payment of 23% of the service charges through the issue of new ordinary shares in the Company with a value of approximately Euro 1 million.

The Company remains confident of a successful conclusion to the Badile permitting and confirms that it still expects to be in a position to drill Badile during 2016.

James Parsons, Sound Energy's Chief Executive Officer, commented:
"Badile remains the largest and most strategic asset in our portfolio with an independently assessed unrisked best case estimate of 178 Bscf equivalent.

Securing the rig and locking in significant additional cost reductions are important steps prior to farming out the asset."
