On 31 July 2013, the Company and YA Global Master SPVLtd agreed to amend the Loan Agreement to extend itthroughto 1September 2014(the “Amended Loan Agreement”). The Amended Loan Agreementwill allow the Company to draw a SEDA-backed loan up to US$1,287,000, at an annual interest rate of 9%. All other terms of the Amended Loan Agreement are substantially the same as described in the Company’s RNS dated 31 January 2012.
The Company also announces that it is continuing to make progress on the installation of an eight kilometre pipeline and related facilities within the MtsareKhevi Field as previously announced on 6 June 2013. Due to operational delays related to installation logistics, it is now expected that first gas will occur in the fourth quarter of 2013. The infrastructure will accommodate production from currently shut-in gas wells which the Company believes could produce from the outset approximately two million cubic feet per day of gas (57,000 cubic metres per day).
