SacOil Holdings Limited, through its subsidiary Mena International
Petroleum Company Limited ("Mena"), is pleased to announce the
commencement of field development operations at its 100% owned
Lagia oil field in Sinai, onshore Egypt.

Mena has contracted Schlumberger Egypt to conduct an initial phase
of development, which includes the hydraulic stimulation of the
Lagia 6,7,8,9 and 10 wells, specifically targeting the intersected
productive Nukhul geological formation. Schlumberger is one of the
leading international oil field services companies, with a proven
track record of success in Egypt.

Operations commenced on the 4th January 2015 and well results are
expected by the end of January 2015. The Company anticipates total
daily production of approximately 350 barrels of oil per day,
provided the completion of operations at each of these wells is
successful. In addition to these hydraulic stimulation operations,
a thermal recovery process is being planned for the first half of
2015, which should further enhance oil production and recovery of
the reserves from the Lagia oil field.

SacOil is preparing and planning a second phase of development
operations to start by June 2015, which includes the drilling of
up to five additional wells in the Lagia oil field. More details
of this phased development, as well as progress on the current
operations, will be announced in due course.
