Dominion is pleased to report that it has received its drilling permit for the Ngaji-1 well on Exploration Area Block 4B (EA4B), Dominion's first exploration well in Uganda and the first ever to be drilled in the Lake Edward basin. The permit was issued by Uganda's Department of Petroleum Exploration and Production (PEPD).

Dominion's team in Uganda is implementing a comprehensive program, as outlined in the application and environmental impact assessment (EIA), to address all social and environmental matters associated with the drilling of the well, expected to commence in June.

"With preparations well under way, we are now moving rapidly towards initial drilling in June and possibly more seismic to follow later in the year," said Andrew Cochran, chief executive of Dominion Petroleum.
