The proposed acquisition by Saffron of Sound Energy’s and Po Valleys Italian natural gas and oil assets as contemplated in the transaction adds significant larger assets to the Saffron portfolio including the Selva onshore gas field (2C 17bcf), the Teodorico offshore Adriatic gasfield (47bcf) development and the large Torre del Morro and Santa Maria Gorretti and Dalla gas exploration licences plus two smaller gas production fields.

The enlarged company would be re-named Coro Energy Plc (“Coro”) and, in addition to managing the enlarged Italian portfolio of assets, is positioning itself as a mid-cap regional gas producer and explorer. Key local executive staff from each of Sound Energy Italy, Po Valley Operations and the Company would be retained by Coro.
