Tower Resources plc (“Tower” or “the Company”), the AIM-listed oil and gas exploration company, today announces its final results for the 12 months ended 31 December 2010.

Highlights:
Namibia
  • Independent Competent Persons Report (“CPR”) in mid-2010 confirmed huge potential based on 2-D seismic
  • 3-D seismic survey interpretation has been completed since the year end and confirmed clear structural closure,
  • sustained reservoir thickness and direct hydrocarbon indicators at the main Maastrichtian prospect level
  • A recently identified Albian age reservoir may be significant.
  • 3-D AVO interpretation fine tuning still in process but near completion
  • CPR update incorporating full 3-D interpretation underway and due for completion by end-June 2011
  • Financial and operational planning activities in progress with a view to drilling early in 2012
Uganda
  • Prospectivity of EA5 has been enhanced by the results of an aero gravity gradiometry survey
  • A probable oil generation kitchen has been identified
  • A large high structural area has also been identified where reservoir quality may be productive
  • A seismic survey is ready to begin so that a well can be drilled before the end of 2011

Commenting on the results, Peter Kingston, Executive Chairman of Tower said:

“The 3-D seismic data acquired in Namibia has confirmed the exciting potential in the Delta Maastrichtian reservoir with very strong hydrocarbon indications being seen. A second potentially significant reservoir has been identified in a formation of Albian age and the secondary leads have been confirmed to be present. A well early in 2012 will finally test one of the worldclass, multi-billion barrel resource potential prospects in the Company’s Namibian Licence. While Namibia can transform Tower as a company, I am pleased that Uganda may still deliver substantial shareholder value from a well in the second half of this year. The next year promises to be one of the most exciting of my professional career.”
