The Group’s interim financial statements have been prepared on the basis that it is a going concern, which contemplates the realisation of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The review opinion from the auditors does however contain an emphasis of matter regarding material uncertainty about the Group’s ability to continue as a going concern.

Mark Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“Although I am pleased with the Group’s operational and financial performance over the interim period, the immediate focus of management and our board has been to intensify our efforts to fund our 2009 – 2010 drilling programme in order to capture the value of our exploration assets in Kazakhstan.

Due to the unprecedented economic climate of falling oil prices, collapse in global financial markets and difficult credit environment, we are considering all avenues as we seek additional capital to execute our strategic plan. Potential sources of capital include an increase in our borrowing base under our existing Credit Facility, proceeds from the farmout or sale of interests in one or both of our existing oil and gas licences in Western Kazakhstan and additional third party debt or equity financing, if available.”
