Further to the Company's announcement of 31 October 2017, Prospex Oil and Gas, the AIM quoted investment company, has been advised by the operator, Raffles Energy, that the Bainet-1 well in the 1,734 sq km Exploration Area of the EIV-1 Suceava Concession, onshore Romania spudded at approx. 3.30pm on 10 November 2017. Prospex has a 50% interest in Suceava, which is located in a proven hydrocarbon basin in North East Romania.

The well is targeting the Bainet Prospect, a shallow, 600m biogenic gas target covered by 3D seismic. The Bainet Prospect lies on trend with similar fields producing from good quality Salmatian reservoirs on the Concession as well as with analogue gas fields producing conventional high-calorific value natural gas (over 98% methane content) in the Bilca Gas Production Area of the adjoining EIII-1 Brodina Block. The Bainet Prospect is a well-defined structural closure on seismic, supported by an amplitude variation with offset ('AVO') response similar to nearby fields. It has been assigned internal gross prospective resources of approximately 1.5bcf recoverable.

Drilling and short term testing, which is being undertaken by Weatherford Drilling International, is expected to take 15 days.

Prospex non-executive Chairman, Bill Smith, said:

'The commencement of drilling operations at the Bainet Prospect kicks off what promises to be an exciting period for Prospex, which will see us participate in the drilling of two wells in the next few weeks. In addition to Suceava, we have a 17% interest in the Podere Maiar-1d appraisal well in the Podere Gallina Exploration Permit in the Po Valley region of Italy, which is also due to be drilled shortly targeting contingent resources (2C) of 17 Bcf. I look forward to providing further updates on our progress as we look to deliver value for Prospex shareholders in the near term.'
