Heritage Provides Drilling Updates on Miran Block

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/17/2009, Location: Middle East

Heritage Oil Plc, an independent upstream exploration and production company, issues its Interim Management Statement for the period from 1 July 2009 to 16 November 2009, in accordance with reporting requirements of the EU Transparency Directive.

- Appraisal drilling on Miran West structure, Kurdistan Region of Iraq, to commence later this month with further appraisal and development drilling planned in 2010.

- Exploration drilling on the neighbouring Miran East structure planned for 2010.

- Discussions with Genel Energy International Limited (Genel) are ongoing and it is hoped that a signed implementation agreement and prospectus will be published before the end of the year.

Heritage said that drilling of the Miran West-2 well is expected to commence later this month and has been planned to appraise the reservoir sections previously encountered in the Miran West-1 discovery well, whilst minimising the risk of formation damage. The rig for Miran West-2 is currently moving approximately four kilometres northwest of the Miran West-1 well to the new location.

Miran West-2 constitutes the start of a multi-well drilling programme in 2010 on the Miran Block, which includes an exploration well on the Miran East structure.

Miran East-1 well is expected to be spudded by Q2 2010.

Discussions with Genel are continuing with the terms of the merger nearing formal agreement. Both sides remain committed to completing the proposed transaction. It is hoped that the implementation agreement can be signed and the prospectus published before the end of the year.
