CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 21, 2016) - Serinus Energy Inc. ("Serinus", "SEN" or the "Company") (TSX:SEN)(WARSAW:SEN) is pleased to announce that today the National Agency for Mineral Resources ("NAMR"), the Romanian regulator, has granted an additional extension approval for the Phase 3 Extension Addendum (the "Addendum") for the Satu Mare License ("Satu Mare") in northwest Romania. On October 31, 2016, the Company announced the approval of the Addendum but noted that the start of the three year term was retroactively set to May 28, 2015, the date that the Company originally applied for the extension. Given that the delay in the ratification of the approval was beyond the Company's control, further applications were made to have the start of the three-year period set at the date of approval. The Company has been notified by NAMR that the new start date of the three-year Addendum term has been established as of October 20, 2016.
Satu Mare contains the Moftinu natural gas discovery made by the Company in 2015 and the rest of the block has significant exploration potential. The Addendum will allow Serinus to proceed with development of that discovery and to advance its exploration efforts.
Serinus is an international upstream oil and gas exploration and production company that owns and operates projects in Tunisia and Romania.
