Resource Ventures, Inc. Wholly-Owned Subsidiary, Global Energy Management Ltd., Signs Letter of Intent With Sweden's Petroskandia for Development of Tebourosouk Block in Tunisia

SILVERADO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - Resource Ventures, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: REVI), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Global Energy Management Ltd., ("GEM"), has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Petroskandia AB of Sweden, an oil and gas exploration, production and trading company. Subject to due diligence and the subsequent signing of a definitive Joint Venture Agreement, the terms of the LOI anticipate the joint exploration and development on the Tebourosouk Block in Tunisia. The Joint Venture will include a farm-in agreement under which GEM would earn a 25% retained interest in the block in return for exploration and development funding.

The Tebourosouk Block is jointly owned by Petroskandia (50%) and Entreprise Tunisienne d'Activites Petroliere (ETAP), the Tunisian state-owned oil and gas exploration company (also 50%).

The Teboursouk permit lies in the two main structural zones of the northern Tunisia, the Tellian atlas and the northern portion of the Tunisian atlas. The block is onshore near the Utique gas producing field (ETAP) and has a total area of 4956 square kilometers (1913 square miles). Petroskandia and Resource Ventures intend to develop and implement a robust exploration program upon signing of a Joint Venture Agreement.

Commented CEO Bob Thompson, "On March 21, 2013, Resource Ventures announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, GEM, has placed a bid on a 2700 square kilometer (1042 square mile) oil concession in North Africa. The addition of a second North African concession to Resource Ventures's portfolio would very rapidly advance the company's strategic Oil and Gas Exploration Plans."
