Helium One Update

Completion of Extended 2D Seismic Campaign and Identification of New Priority Prospects

Scirocco Energy (AIM: SCIR) notes the positive update provided by Helium One Limited ("Helium One") (AIM: HE1) this morning, announcing the completion of its extended infill 2D seismic campaign and identification of new priority drill ready targets ahead of commencement of exploration drilling programme at Rukwa Project (100% owned by Helium One) in Tanzania.

Highlights of the Helium One announcement :

· Completion of an extended 200km 2D seismic campaign, including an additional 50 line kilometres providing further data on new priority prospects


· Modern seismic data is of a higher quality than earlier work, resulting in a better understanding of the subsurface and reassessment of geological risk across our portfolio


· Improved data resolution over multiple prospects, highlighted by an upgrade of the Tai prospect, with stacked targets believed to be across a larger area than those interpreted from historical data


· Zero lost-time injuries and no HSE incidents across 97,280 man-hours of remote working


· Ongoing seismic interpretation supports improved drill targeting over the three / four hole exploration drilling campaign, now commencing in early-June with first hole planned at Tai prospect


Full details of the announcement can be found on the Helium One's website
