("Petrel" or "the Company")


Ghanaian Negotiations


The directors of Petrel (AIM: PET) wish to advise shareholders that Petrel and its partners have been informed by the Ghanaian Ministry of Petroleum (the "Ministry") that the Ministry is available for negotiations on our proposals for amended coordinates of the Tano Basin block which Petrel first became interested in in 2010. 


The Ministry has reviewed our entire proposal and accordingly advised us that the Block named "Lukoil B" is available for negotiations.  We will confirm our interest and follow up on this prospective acreage. Further announcements will be made as soon as practicable.


This new acreage is an offshore block in deeper water than the Tano 2A block which has been the subject of ongoing discussions for many years.  Our Ghanaian affiliated company, Pan Andean Resources (Ghana) Limited, is a private Ghanaian company held 30% by Petrel Resources, 60% by Clontarf Energy, and 10% local Ghana interests.
