Helium One Update

Mobilisation of Geochemical Surface Exploration at Eyasi Project

Scirocco Energy (AIM: SCIR), notes the positive update provided by Helium One Limited ("Helium One") (AIM: HE1) this morning, in which Helium One announces that work has commenced to mobilise surface geochemical exploration at the Eyasi Project (Helium One 100%) in southern Tanzania. Scirocco holds an interest of c. 4.3% in the share capital of Helium One, and 1 million share options.

Highlights:

· Surface exploration work to commence at the 804km 2  Eyasi Project, ~600km to the north of the Rukwa Project.

· Eyasi Project has numerous geological similarities to the Rukwa Project showing potential to host a helium deposit.

· Fieldwork will focus on evaluating historic seep locations as well as identifying potential new seep locations at the southern end of the project area.

· Desktop analysis utilising Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) data has identified anomalous features which may correspond to previously unknown helium-nitrogen macro and micro seep locations.

· Mobilisation of field crew equipped with a MiniRUEDI portable mass spectrometer to test the potential seep locations and extend the known helium-rich geochemical fairway over the Eyasi Project.
