(via TheNewswire)

August 1, 2019 - TheNewswire - Calgary, Alberta - Sonoro Energy Ltd (the "Corporation " or "Sonoro") (TSXV:SNV) and its Indonesian partner PT Menara Global Energi were awarded the Selat Panjang PSC in the 2019 Conventional Bid Round in Indonesia in May 2019. Sonoro would like to update shareholders on the timing and process for formally completing the PSC award from the government.

The project consortium along with SKKMIGAS recently completed a site visit to the Selat Panjang block in Sumatra, Indonesia and was pleased with the condition of the land and state of the facilities. Since the visit, the consortium has been finalizing the consortium agreements and is in the process of establishing a final date for the PSC execution with the various Indonesian government agencies. The partners expect to complete the process within 15 to 30 days. A bid and completion bond of US$5 million was lodged by the project partners prior to the bid submission in May and continues to be held and in good standing with the government of Indonesia.

The 923 sq km Selat Panjang PSC area is situated in Riau province, Central Sumatra and is approximately 925 km from Jakarta and 110 km from Pekanbaru (capital city of Riau Province). The block has produced oil and gas in prior years and in 2014 the Indonesian Ministry of Energy approved a plan of development for further production. In 2018, the block PSC was terminated by the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and as a result the Plan of Development was not implemented.
