Exercise of Options

 

Block Energy Plc, the exploration and production company focused on Georgia, announces that an employee has exercised options to acquire 317,746 ordinary shares of 0.25 pence each.

 

The exercise will be satisfied out of existing shares in the Block Energy plc Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT"). Following the exercise of these options, the remaining number of shares held by the EBT will be 39,291,602.

 

The Company's total issued share capital at the date of this announcement therefore remains unchanged at 435,702,834 ordinary shares with one voting right each. As the Company does not hold any shares in treasury, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 435,702,834 and this figure of ordinary shares may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Notes to editors

Block Energy is an AIM-listed independent oil and gas company focused on production and development in Georgia, applying innovative technology to realise the full potential of previously discovered fields.

The Company has a 100% working interest in the highly prospective West Rustavi onshore oil and gas field with multiple wells that have tested oil and gas from a range of geological horizons. The Field has so far produced 50 Mbbls of light sweet crude, and has 0.9 MMbbls of gross 2P oil reserves in the Middle Eocene. It also has 38 MMbbls of gross unrisked 2C contingent resources of oil and 608 BCF of gross unrisked 2C contingent resources of gas in the Middle, Upper and Lower Eocene formations (Source: CPR Gustavson Associates: 1 January 2018).

Block Energy also holds 100% and 90% working interests in the onshore oil producing Norio and Satskhenisi fields. It has recently entered into a conditional sale and purchase agreement for Georgian onshore Blocks XIB and IX.

The Company offers a clear entry point for investors to gain exposure to Georgia's growing economy and the strong regional demand for oil and gas.
