Zenith purchases workover rig in Azerbaijan

Zenith Energy Ltd., ("Zenith" or the "Company"), (LSE: ZEN; TSX.V: ZEE), the dual listed international oil & gas production company operating the largest onshore oilfield in Azerbaijan, is pleased to announce that it has signed a purchase agreement contract for the order of a new workover rig, (the "New Workover Rig"), with a well-established manufacturer based in Azerbaijan.

The New Workover Rig is designated as an A-100 truck-mounted workover rig. The model of the New Workover Rig has an extensive manufacturing history in Russian and Central Asian countries and is among the most heavily utilised workover rig variants in the region. The abundant availability of spare parts and mechanical support in the proximity of the Company's operations has played an important role in the selection of the New Workover Rig.

The use of the New Workover Rig will not be restricted to the Company's Azerbaijan operations.

Delivery of the New Workover rig is expected to take place ninety days from the signing of the purchase agreement contract.

The total value of the purchase agreement contract for the New Workover Rig is approximately CAD$440,218 (approximately £250,933).

Andrea Cattaneo, Chief Executive Officer of Zenith, commented:

"The Company is committed to strongly supporting the local economy of our host country. Azerbaijan has a long and successful history of manufacturing oil production equipment and machinery. Upon delivery, the New Workover Rig will join the Company's recently upgraded A-80  workover rig in performing field rehabilitation operations across the field."
