Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. has received written notices from ExxonMobil (XOM) and MOL Hungarian Oil and Gas Plc (MOL) stating that neither company will proceed to the appraisal drilling program in the joint production and development project located in the Mako Trough in Hungary and exit the Production and Development Agreement.
