26th June 2014

Rift Energy has commenced a 2D seismic programme covering 680 line kilometres on Block L19 in the Republic of Kenya

Data acquisition will take approximately 60 to 90 days, which will be followed by data processing and interpretation. Upon completion of the 2D seismic programme, Rift Energy will have completed all of the minimum work requirements for the first two year exploration period under terms of the Block L19 production sharing contract.

The 2D seismic programme was designed to cover areas of interest resulting from an aerial gravity and magnetic survey (AGM) and a geochemical survey. Both surveys were completed during 2013 and yielded positive results.

The AGM formed the basis for a depth to basement map that identified multiple large basement structures and play types.

The geochemical survey resulted in indications of hydrocarbons over areas of interest identified by the AGM. As a result, the parameters of the 2D seismic programme were designed to maximise the coverage of the identified areas of interest by these surveys.
