Clarification of incorrect information published on Bloomberg

SacOil would like to clarify incorrect information pertaining to the Company, released on Bloomberg on 27 July 2011. The release claims that the Company has received interest from internationals in terms of the ownership of the Company and its assets. This is incorrect.

The Company was in fact asked whether it would consider a farm down or involvement of partners in its assets. The CEO`s response was that there had been some interest indicated in doing so (as is normal in the Oil and Gas industry) but that no talks were taking place.

Accordingly, shareholders are advised that the Company is currently not involved in any discussions relating to the disposal of the Company or its assets.
