Premier Exploration Pakistan Limited (PEPL) and its partners in the Zamzama field - BHP Petroleum, LASMO (MP) Limited and Pakistan Government Holdings - today signed a gas sales agreement in Islamabad. This agreement contemplates the supply of 70mmscfd of gas to Sui Southern Gas Company Limited with first gas expected in early 2001.

Gas will be lifted from the existing Zamzama-1 and Zamzama-2 exploration and appraisal wells and exported 10km via a minimum processing facility into the main Sui-Karachi gas pipeline. The high productivity of the two wells during earlier tests - together with their proximity to existing infrastructure - prompted the company's decision to realise early production from the field by means of an extended well test which will provide valuable reservoir data to support further gas sales.

In parallel with this development, the Joint Venture will continue to discuss with the Government of Pakistan the full field development of this substantial gas field.

The Zamzama field lies within the Dadu exploration concession, which is located in the Sindh Province of southern Pakistan, approximately 200km north east of Karachi.

Charles Jamieson, Premier Oil's CEO said:

"The signing of this agreement demonstrates the commitment of the Pakistan Government to develop Pakistan's large gas resources. We are well positioned to play a leading role in the development of these resources."
