Eco (Atlantic) O&G (AIM:ECO) New Competent Person’s Resource Report

Eco Atlantic Provides New Competent Person’s Resource Report on Its Assets Offshore Guyana, Namibia and South Africa

Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas Ltd. (AIM: ECO, TSX ‐ V: EOG), the oil and gas exploration company focused on the offshore Atlantic Margins, is pleased to announce the publication of an updated NI 51-101 compliant Competent Person’s Report (“CPR”) on its assets Offshore Guyana, Offshore Namibia and Offshore South Africa. The CPR was compiled by WSP USA Inc., of Boulder Colorado, USA, an independent third-party auditor and can be found on the Company’s website.

The new CPR incorporates the increased interests in its Namibian assets and the additional two blocks offshore South Africa resulting from the acquisition of Azinam Group Limited (“Azinam”) as announced on 11 March 2022. All contractual and legal conditions required for completion have occurred save for final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange, which is expected to be received imminently. The CPR has been prepared on the basis that the acquisition of Azinam has completed.

Colin Kinley, Co-Founder and COO of Eco Atlantic commented:

“With our current strategy for increasing our stakeholder asset base, we have focused solely on strategic acquisitions that can add material and near-term growth and catalysts for the company. The addition of the Azinam assets in Namibia and South Africa have quickly added prospective resources to our portfolio. As we work towards the completion of our recently announced binding term sheet to acquire JHI’s 17.5% interest in the Canje Block offshore Guyana plus the maturation of additional resources currently being interpreted from ongoing 3D processing in Block 3B/4B we expect to see even further growth of the portfolio from here in the coming months”.

Importantly our acquisitions and strategy to deliver mature drillable prospects in the near term is driven in part by the current heated energy market, the reduction in worldwide exploration, and the marked cycling we anticipate through energy transition in the coming years. Eco has the capacity to participate and provide strategic value accretion through the drill bit. Our planned well for Q3 this year on Block 2B in South Africa is being quickly followed by work on the potential to drill on Block 3B/4B in the Orange Basin, directly adjacent to the recent discoveries announced by TotalEnergies and Shell. We are also confidently progressing towards drilling in Orinduik block offshore Guyana, subject to available funding, and look forward to confirming a drill target and timing with our partners in the coming months. Assuming the acquisition of JHI completes as planned in the coming months, this acquisition will also provide us with the opportunity to participate in a number of targets on the Canje Block as prospects are matured by ExxonMobil and ourselves in the Guyana basin.”
