ADX Energy Limited (ASX:ADX) Parta Block Concession Agreement Approved By Romanian Government

Perth, Australia, Nov 29, 2012 - (ABN Newswire) - ADX Energy Ltd (ASX:ADX.AX - News) is pleased to announce that the Romanian Government has ratified the concession agreement for ADX's Parta license ("Parta Permit") in Romania.

The committed work program for the Parta Permit requires the acquisition of 2D and 3D seismic and the drilling of two exploration wells. ADX holds 50% of the license and is the operator.

The remaining 8 prospecting permits are still being held by ADX at 100%.

Parta Permit Background

The Parta Permit covers an area of 1,221 km2 and is located in the southern Pannonian basin area of western Romania. It covers 7 excised oil and gas fields and is considered underexplored. Exploration activity ceased in the early eighties with most wells drilled in the 60'ies and 70'ies of the last century. The same applies to seismic data and no 3D seismic has been acquired for exploration purposes. Previously ADX has identified several conventional leads and prospects which are estimated to contain a total of 47 mmbls of oil and 480 bcf of gas (recoverable mean prospective resource potential). The main target depths are relatively shallow between 800 and 2000 meters, whereby the main gas potential is in the shallower section. The ongoing exploration activity on the ADX' Romanian acreage is resulting in the identification of additional exploration potential. Romania represents an important growth opportunity in line with ADX's ongoing strategy of focusing its resources on core areas which offer materiality, proven prospectivity, excellent fiscal terms and access to markets, including direct gas transmission into the European markets.


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. To that effect ADX farmed in PEL 182 into the South Australian portion of the Cooper Basin in 2005.

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.

ADX is also a participant and operator of a number of AMI's (Area/s of Mutual Interest) that enable it and its partners to efficiently act upon business opportunities.
