Strata-X Energy Ltd. Announces Significant Progress Achieved at Serowe Project

Strata-X Energy Ltd. announced an update on the Serowe Coal Seam Gas Project in Botswana. The Company has farmed into approximately 273,000 acres in the Kalahari Basin CSG Fairway and has the opportunity to achieve a 75% working interest in the project, which has an estimated 1.045 Tcf (1075PJ) of recoverable Prospective Resources net to the company's interest. The estimated quantities of petroleum that may potentially be recovered by the application of a future development project(s) relate to undiscovered accumulations. These estimates have both an associated risk of discovery and a risk of development. Further exploration appraisal and evaluation is required to determine the existence of a significant quantity of potentially moveable hydrocarbons. Rhino CBM Pty Ltd. (100% owned) has been established and is now the registered holder of the exploration permits after they were transferred to it from MPE. Rhino will be the operator of the Serowe Coal Seam Gas Project. Coring and other services have been secured and a drilling contract is expected to be executed within 2 weeks. It is anticipated that operations to core approximately 150 meters will commence on the NWB-352-1-W005 core hole within the next 8 weeks, subject to rig availability. The core will be handled and analyzed by Weatherford Labs. Surface Access Rights have been approved for the upcoming coring operations and other subsequent work. All other government approvals and notices have been obtained or are expected shortly. The NWB-352-1-W005 core hole is a condition of the Phase 1 farm-in with MPE and is fully funded. After the results of the core hole have been evaluated, the Company intends on drilling, coring and production testing an additional well to evaluate the prospectivity of the Serowe Gas Fairway.
