London, 10 April 2024 - Energean plc (LSE: ENOG TASE: אנאג) is pleased to announce that it has completed the farm-in to Chariot Limited's ("Chariot", AIM:CHAR) acreage offshore Morocco, following the receipt of all remaining approvals from the Moroccan Authorities, and signed a rig contract with Stena Drilling Limited ("Stena").

Energean has paid $10 million cash consideration upon farm-in closing. The resulting overall participation is:

·      Lixus licence: Energean (45%; operator), Chariot (30%) and ONHYM (25%)

·      Rissana licence: Energean (37.5%; operator), Chariot (37.5%) and ONHYM (25%)

A rig contract has also been signed with Stena for the use of its Stena Forth drill ship for the appraisal well, plus one optional well. Energean as operator, alongside its partners, is planning to drill the appraisal well on the Anchois field (Lixus licence) in Q3 2024.
