Investment Update

RNS Number : 7418R
16 September 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                

("TXO" or the "Company")



TXO, the AIM-quoted energy resource and clean technology investment company, wishes to announce that regarding the oil remediation contract announced on 28th April 2014, Morgan Oil Marine (Bahamas) Limited has recently confirmed that as at the beginning of September, the contract had been extended and that work on-site was continuing.

In addition, the Company has been advised that Oil recovery Services Ltd. ("ORS") and Athabasca Resources Ltd. ("ARL") have agreed heads of terms on a new joint venture.  ARL is in the process of acquiring leases in the Athabasca oil sands region of Canada with a view of carrying out an appraisal programme and thereafter developing oil production using modern extraction methods. ORS has developed environmentally friendly technology that uses amongst other things enzymes and surfactants to help recover waste oil and to remediate oil spills and contamination. ORS believes the technology can be adapted and deployed for use in the recovery of oil bitumen from the Athabasca oil sands which will avoid the need for steam generation as part of the production process. The JV is to develop and exploit the technology, enabling recovery of oil and bitumen from the leases and such oil sands throughout the territory.   

Further announcements will be made in due course, as appropriate.

The Board believes that all the investments held by the Company are making good progress and it is the intention of the Company to update investors with a trading statement immediately before its year end, at the end of this month.

Tim Baldwin, Chairman and CEO of TXO, commented:

"We are pleased that MOM is still fully engaged under the terms of its existing contract and continues to work in partnership with ORS in this regard, and that ORS has now agreed a joint venture with Athabasca.  Negotiations regarding other viable projects are continuing. "
