Canada NewsWire

OYSTERBAY, Tanzania, Oct. 7, 2019 /CNW/ - Swala Oil & Gas (Tanzania) plc ("Swala" or "the Company") notes the positive operational update announced by Orca Exploration Group Inc. on the 2nd October 2019 that, on the 25th September 2019, PanAfrican Energy Tanzania Limited ("PAET") agreed an amendment to its gas sales agreement with the Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation ("TPDC") that raises the Minimum Daily Quantity sold to TPDC from 20 mmscfd to 30 mmscfd.

Gas sold by PAET to the Power Sector was sold at an average of $3.68 per thousand cubic feet in 2018, gross of the tariff for processing and transportation costs, TPDC profit share, Additional Profits Tax and the IFC Participation Interest. TPDC sells this gas to power and higher-value industrial customers, primarily in the Dar es Salaam area.

The Company also notes the description of initiatives that require clarity in respect of the PAET Production Sharing Agreement, the development of regional infrastructure and a licence extension that allows the investment of significant development capital expenditure. Whilst these initiatives are positive, the Company is not aware that any are certain or close to completion
