SDX ENERGY PLC ("SDX", the "Company" or the "Group")

Results of SAK-1 and KSR-20 wells in Morocco

SDX Energy Plc (AIM: SDX), is pleased to announce a successful two well drilling campaign in Morocco that opens up a new producing area. Further wells are planned in Morocco for 2023 to drive production and revenue growth.

In Morocco, the Company announces two discoveries from the recently completed SAK-1 and KSR-20 wells. The SAK-1 well has already been connected to the Company's infrastructure and testing results indicate that in place volumes will be on the higher side of the pre-drill P50 estimate of 0.44 bcf. Crucially, the well opens a new production area to the north-west of the Company's historical producing area, with several other follow-on prospects identified within the SAK cluster.

The KSR-20 well has also discovered gas in this well-known area and is currently undergoing a pressure build up test. The well will be put on production as soon as permitting and tie in are completed and an announcement on anticipated in place volumes will be made in due course.

Following these successes, and the identification of further similar drillable prospects, the Company plans to expand its drilling operations in 2023. To date, over 70 prospects have been identified on the portion of Moroccan acreage that is covered by high-quality 3D seismic, of which 25 have been high-graded and total around 20 bcf P50 EUR unrisked.

Mark Reid, CEO of SDX, commented:

"We are pleased with the results of both the SAK-1 and KSR-20 wells. In addition to opening a new play fairway with numerous follow-on drillable targets, the wells will contribute immediately to production and revenue growth in an area where demand and gas pricing is robust. Morocco remains a key area of potential growth for SDX and we look forward to planning further drilling in 2023. I would also like to add my thanks to our partner ONHYM for the provision of the excellent drilling team and the ONHYM 525 rig which was used to great effect during the campaign."

Forward-looking information

Certain statements contained in this press release may constitute "forward-looking information" as such term is used in applicable Canadian securities laws. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or are not statements of historical fact should be viewed as forward-looking information. In particular, statements regarding future drilling developments and results in the Company's Moroccan concessions should be regarded as forward-looking information.

The forward-looking information contained in this document is based on certain assumptions, and although management considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to them, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking information because SDX can give no assurances that they may prove to be correct. This includes, but is not limited to, assumptions related to, among other things, commodity prices and interest and foreign exchange rates; planned synergies, capital efficiencies and cost - savings; applicable tax laws; future production rates; receipt of necessary permits; the sufficiency of budgeted capital expenditures in carrying out planned activities, and the availability and cost of labour and services.

All timing given in this announcement, unless stated otherwise, is indicative, and while the Company endeavours to provide accurate timing to the market, it cautions that, due to the nature of its operations and reliance on third parties, this is subject to change, often at little or no notice. If there is a delay or change to any of the timings indicated in this announcement, the Company shall update the market without delay.

Forward-looking information is subject to certain risks and uncertainties (both general and specific) that could cause actual events or outcomes to differ materially from those anticipated or implied by such forward - looking statements. Such risks and other factors include, but are not limited to, political, social, and other risks inherent in daily operations for the Company, risks associated with the industries in which the Company operates, such as: operational risks; delays or changes in plans with respect to growth projects or capital expenditures; costs and expenses; health, safety and environmental risks; commodity price, interest rate and exchange rate fluctuations; environmental risks; competition; permitting risks; the ability to access sufficient capital from internal and external sources; and changes in legislation, including but not limited to tax laws and environmental regulations.

Oil and Gas Advisory

Certain disclosures in this news release constitute "anticipated results" for the purposes of NI 51-101 because the disclosure in question may, in the opinion of a reasonable person, indicate the potential value or quantities of resources in respect of the Company's resources or a portion of its resources. Without limitation, the anticipated results disclosed in this news release include estimates of volume, flow rate, production rates, porosity, and pay thickness attributable to the resources of the Company. Such estimates have been prepared by Company management and have not been prepared or reviewed by an independent qualified reserves evaluator or auditor. Anticipated results are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including those described above and various geological, technical, operational, engineering, commercial, and technical risks. In addition, the geotechnical analysis and engineering to be conducted in respect of such resources is not complete. Such risks and uncertainties may cause the anticipated results disclosed herein to be inaccurate. Actual results may vary, perhaps materially.

Prospective Resources Data

The prospective resources estimates disclosed or referenced herein have been prepared by Dr. Rob Cook, a qualified reserves evaluator, in accordance with the SPE's Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook and in accordance with NI 51-101. The prospective resources disclosed herein have an effective date of 1 January 2022. Prospective resources are those quantities of gas, estimated as of the given date, to be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations through future development projects. As prospective resources, there is no certainty that any portion of the resources will be discovered. The chance that an exploration project will result in a discovery is referred to as the "chance of discovery" as defined by the management of the Company.

There is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources discussed herein; though any discovery that is commercially viable would be tied back to the Company's pipeline in Morocco and then connected to customers' facilities within 9 to 12 months of discovery. Based upon the economic analysis undertaken on any discovery, management has attributed an associated chance of development of 100%.

There are uncertainties associated with the volume estimates of the prospective resources disclosed herein, due to the level of information available on prospective resources, but ranges are defined based on data from the Company's nearby existing analogous wells. Some of the risks and uncertainties are outlined below:

   --      Petrophysical parameters of the sand/reservoir; 
   --      Fluid composition, especially heavy end hydrocarbons: 
   --      Accurate estimation of reservoir conditions (pressure and temperature); 
   --      Reservoir drive mechanism; 
   --      Potential well deliverability; and 

-- The thickness and lateral extent of the reservoir section, currently based on 3D seismic data.

"P50" means that there is at least a 50% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the best estimate.
