San Leon Energy plc, the AIM listed company, focused on oil and gas development and appraisal in Africa and Europe, notes a media article in the Nigerian press which makes reference to a summons having been served on the Company and certain other entities by SunTrust Oil (“SunTrust”) in relation to a purported claim by SunTrust over the purchase by the Company of an indirect interest in OML 18.

San Leon can confirm that none of the Company, its subsidiaries or legal counsel have received any such summons to date and neither are they aware of the existence of any such summons.

Having taken legal advice, the Company is of the view that the purported allegations by SunTrust are without any foundation or merit whatsoever, the 2016 OML 18 transactions having undergone extensive due diligence and documentation. The Company will provide updates as and when appropriate in due course, and will vigorously defend any such claim received.
