June 16, 2014

Po Valley Energy (ASX:PVE) is pleased to announce that the Ministry of Economic Development has officially notified the award of the preliminarily production concession for the Sant’Alberto gas field (north of Bologna).

The Company will now submit the Environmental Impact Assessment to the Emilia Romagna Region, the last step towards the full grant of the production concession.

As previously reported in the Company’s 2013 Annual Report, the estimated contingent resources for this gas field are as follows:

Contingent Resource Category * Contingent Resource Estimate - (Bcf)
(100% interest)
1C 1.8
2C 2.1
3C 2.8

“The long awaited preliminary award of the Production Concession marks the achievement of an important regulatory hurdle in the process toward our fourth producing gas field. Planned development for the Sant’Alberto field envisions a small modular plant and a simple connection to the national grid which is some 200 meters away.” said Sara Edmonson, Po Valley’s Acting CEO.

* Evaluation date 13 December 2013. The deterministic method was used to prepare the estimates of contingent resources.
