Eco Atlantic Provides Interpretation of HRT's Murombe-1 Well Offshore Namibia

Eco Atlantic Provides Interpretation of HRT's Murombe-1 Well Offshore Namibia 
TORONTO, July 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Eco Atlantic" 
or the "Company") (TSXV: EOG) (NSX: EOG) provides technical interpretation of 
Murombe-1 well drilled by HRT Participações em Petróleo S.A ("HRT") in the 
Walvis Basin, offshore Namibia. 
HRT announced on Friday July 18, 2013 that the Murombe-1 well, the second 
offshore well in their exploratory drilling campaign has been concluded and is 
considered as a dry hole. This well was targeting the Murombe Prospect, 
located in Petroleum Exploration License 23 in the Walvis Basin. Although the 
well was dry and presence of poor reservoir in the main target, the results 
reconfirmed the presence of Aptian source rock in the oil window, which was 
also encountered during the drilling of the Wingat-1 well. 
The Murombe-1 exploration well was drilled to a total depth of 5,729 meters 
with the objective of penetrating two targets. The primary target, Murombe, a 
Barremian Age turbidite fan system and a secondary target, the Baobab, a 
shallower Santonian Age structure were both penetrated. The average porosity 
was 19% and no reservoir was encountered. 
Gil Holzman, Chief Executive Officer of Eco Atlantic commented: "The results 
of the Murombe-1 well announced by HRT late last week was disappointing for 
HRT from a commercial perspective, however they provide valuable information 
on the basin and the geological structures of the region. The well reconfirmed 
the evidence of source rock which complements that which was established by 
the Wingat-1 well drilled in May. In that well, samples of high quality light 
sweet crude were recovered, and a working petroleum system in the Walvis Basin 
was established." 
Earlier this month, Eco Atlantic was granted a one year extensions of its 
Exploration Phase of the Sharon and Guy licenses, extending the obligation 
period for both 3D seismic and drilling by a further 12 months into 2016. 
"Repsol recently announced the anticipated drilling of its Welwitschia-1 
prospect in February 2014, which is contiguous to Eco Atlantic's Cooper Block 
in the Walvis Basin." Added Holzman, "HRT has also confirmed the imminent 
drilling of its third exploration well on the Moosehead prospect in the Orange 
Basin. Our Strategy is to continue with ongoing exploration during the 
extended term as approved by the Ministry, which comfortably allows the 
Company sufficient time to work obligations. Our team continues to gather 
information from ongoing exploration work which is allowing us to further 
define our prospects and targets. We and the E&P industry are well aware of 
the statistics of early dry holes drilled in the major fields around the world 
in order to bring them on line. We are being very conservative in our 
budgetary moves at this early stage and remain confident in the prospectivity 
of our offshore Namibia licenses."
