Andrea Cattaneo, Chief Executive Officer of Zenith, commented:

"We have developed a strong following in Norway which has been made clear by the significant liquidity we have seen in recent times.

Zenith has achieved considerable progress in respect of its development objectives during the first quarter of 2021 and, with the rise in oil prices, we are at what the Board believes to be a defining stage in the Company's development.

One of our primary priorities is the successful management of our growing production and development portfolio in Tunisia, as well as building a fruitful long-term relationship with our local partners. By way of the Private Placement, we have further strengthened our cash position to enable the potential completion of additional acquisitions, as well as funding the commencement of planned field development activities within the Ezzaouia Concession.

I look forward to reporting on our exciting progress across our African portfolio in due course."
