Item 8.01Other Events
1.ERHC Energy Inc. (“ERHC” or the “Company”) has been notified of the order dismissing proceedings in Administrative Proceeding Number 3-19419 regarding the Company which has been published on the website of the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
2.ERHC currently seeks new technical and financial partners for the oil and gas exploration and production licenses (“Licenses”) in which ERHC holds interests.
3.The Licenses include the Nigeria-Sao Tome & Principe Joint Development Zone (“JDZ”) Block 2 in which ERHC and several other contracting companies entered jointly into a Production Sharing Contract (“PSC”) with the Nigeria-Sao Tome & Principe Joint Development Authority (“JDA”). The contracting companies are negotiating a Joint Operating Agreement to guide operations between them.
4.ERHC and prior partners carried out an extensive exploration campaign under previous PSCs whereby five wells were drilled in three JDZ Blocks which encountered hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir sands.
5.Since then, a comprehensive study has been produced of the JDZ area integrating the petrophysical data from all the wells drilled so far with reprocessed 2D and 3D seismic data, utilizing AVO/Inversion techniques, to assess the hydrocarbon potential in the JDZ Blocks. The study shows, among other things, numerous undrilled leads calibrated to the wells.
6.Under the auspices of the JDA, ERHC can make the study and foundational datasets available for perusal by credible prospective partners subject to the requisite confidentiality conditions.
7.ERHC also continues to receive solicitations for partnership from license and interest holders in other exploration and production (“E&P”) acreage in the Gulf of Guinea.
8.ERHC’s ability to exploit existing and prospective opportunities will depend on its ability to raise the requisite financing to meet its working capital needs.
