Sound Energy, the Moroccan focused upstream gas company, is pleased to announce the receipt of Moroccan ministerial approval of the new 8 year Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement.

James Parsons, Sound Energy's CEO, commented:

"I am delighted to announce receipt of approval from the Moroccan Energy and Finance Ministries for the Greater Tendrara petroleum agreement and that, as a result, the Greater Tendrara petroleum agreement has now become effective - securing Sound Energy's rights to this potentially transformational acreage up to 2026.

Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement

As announced by Sound Energy on 31 August 2018, the Company and its partners, including Schlumberger, had at that time signed a petroleum agreement covering the Tendrara and Matarka areas (the "Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement"). The Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement, details of which are provided below, was signed by L'Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines ("ONHYM"), the Moroccan State regulator for petroleum operations and, with approval of the Moroccan Energy and Finance Ministries now received, has come into force.

The Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement is in addition to the existing Anoual petroleum agreement and the recently awarded production concession relating to the Tendrara gas discovery.

The new Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement covers an area of approximately 14,500km2 extending across eastern Morocco and surrounding the 133.5km2 development concession area relating to the Tendrara gas discovery. The new Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement unites the areas covered by the Tendrara petroleum agreement granted in April 2013 and the Matarka reconnaissance licence granted in July 2017.

Sound Energy now holds an operated 47.5% operated position in the Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement. The remaining 52.5% will be respectively held by Schlumberger (27.5%) and ONHYM (25%).

The Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement has a duration of 8 years from award and is divided into 3 phases, with each phase having pre-agreed work commitments. The work commitments under the Greater Tendrara Petroleum Agreement are as follows:

- Initial period of 4 years: 2 exploration wells with the minimum Triassic objective. The approaching TE-9 and TE-10 wells will fulfil this commitment.

- Optional first complementary period of 2 years: 1 exploration well with the minimum Triassic objective.

- Optional second complementary period of 2 years: 1 exploration well with the minimum Triassic objective.
