Cameroon Farm-out Update

Tower Resources plc (the "Company" or "Tower" (TRP.L, TRP LN)), the AIM-listed oil and gas company with its focus on Africa, is pleased to announce that the documentation of its farm-out to Beluga Energy Limited ("Beluga") of a 49% non-operating working interest in its Thali Production Sharing Contract ("PSC") in Cameroon, conducted through its wholly-owned subsidiary Tower Resources Cameroon S.A ("TRCSA"), is now finalised, and the package of documents is being submitted to the Minister of Mines, Industry and Technological Development ("MINMIDT") today as per the Cameroon Petroleum Code.  

Completion of the farm-out is still subject to two conditions precedent: the financing contingency requiring Beluga's shareholders' approval, and the MINMIDT approval. The Company will notify the market when both conditions precedent have been met.

Jeremy Asher, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented:

" We cannot be sure how long the MINMIDT approval may take as it can be as long as 60 days, but we hope it will come much sooner, allowing us to complete the farmout sooner. But in the meantime we are moving forward with contract discussions regarding the rig and services, subject to the MINMIDT approval and conclusion of the farmout in due course."

Notes:

Tower Resources Cameroon S.A, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tower Resources plc, holds a 100% interest in the shallow water Thali (formerly known as "Dissoni") Production Sharing Contract (PSC), in the Rio del Rey basin, offshore Cameroon. Tower was awarded the PSC on 15 September 2015 for an Initial Exploration Period of 3 years.

The Thali PSC covers an area of 119.2 km², with water depths ranging from 8 to 48 metres, and lies in the prolific Rio del Rey basin, in the eastern part of the Niger Delta. The Rio del Rey basin has, to date, produced over one billion barrels of oil and has estimated remaining reserves of 1.2 billion barrels of oil equivalent ("boe"), primarily within depths of less than 2,000 metres. The Rio del Rey is a sub-basin of the Niger Delta, an area in which over 34.5 billion barrels of oil has been discovered, with 2.5 billion boe attributed to the Cameroonian section.

An independent Reserve Report conducted by Oilfield International Limited (OIL) has highlighted the contingent and potential resources on the Thali licence and the associated Expected Monetary Value (EMV) as follows:

§ Gross mean contingent resources of 18 MMbbls of oil across the proven Njonji-1 and Njonji-2 fault blocks;

§ Gross mean prospective resources of 20 MMbbls of oil across the Njonji South and Njonji South-West fault blocks;

§ Gross mean prospective resources of 111 MMbbls of oil across four identified prospects located in the Dissoni South and Idenao areas in the northern part of the Thali licence;

§ Calculated EMV10s of US$118 million for the contingent resources, and US$82 million for the prospective resources, respectively.
