Sydney, Australia, June 7, 2012 - (ABN Newswire) - ADX Energy Limited (ASX:ADX.AX - News) provides the following update on the testing of the Sidi Dhaher-1 oil discovery, in the Chorbane licence, onshore Tunisia.
The down hole test string assembly has been successfully run in to the hole to a total depth of approximately 1180 meters and pressure tested.
To ensure the perforating guns are positioned correctly over the oil bearing intervals to be tested an electric wireline gamma ray log is being run.

The well test will then commence and the operator will attempt to flow the well without acid stimulation or artificial lift.
ADX will continue to provide updates on operational milestones as they occur.

About ADX Energy Limited:
The company's strategy is two pronged; grow the European and North African oil and gas business in order to expose shareholders to the lucrative European energy market and to promote it's existing Australian energy, gold and base metal portfolio to capitalise on the current high commodity price environment.
ADX was incorporated in 1987 in order to explore for gold and base metals in Western Australia. The company has recently diversified from its initial minerals focus to include oil and gas exploration.

ADX appointed Wolfgang Zimmer, an oil and gas industry professional with over 27 years experience, as Managing Director in late 2007 to grow the company's oil and gas business. Subsequent director and staff appointments and the establishment of a European office have boosted the depth of oil and gas experience in the company and allowed the company to expand its oil and gas activities.
Currently ADX operates permits onshore and offshore Tunisia, offshore Italy and onshore Australia and holds an interest in a non operated block in onshore Romania.
