San Leon Energy plc (“San Leon” or the “Company”) and its partner, Lundin, are pleased to announce the successful completion of the 300 km2 3D seismic acquisition programme covering the Slyne Basin exploration license F4/06 along the Atlantic Margin, offshore Ireland. The program was completed in 15 days with 100 per cent. of the proposed survey successfully acquired under budget. The data is currently being processed. Final results for interpretation are expected by December.

Additional large structures have been also identified within the survey area with preliminary estimates of more than 3 TCF of natural gas recoverable across the license.
