DALLAS, Texas, and CAESAREA, Israel, May 11, 2022

Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. (OTCQX: ZNOG) files for a new exploration license in the Megiddo-Jezreel Valley on the same 99,000 area as the previous #401 license and the current #428 license.

“This new exploration license application will further our current and future work plans in Israel,” stated Vice President and Managing Director in Israel, Jeff Moskowitz.

All well-testing, completion, and stimulation equipment are at the Haifa port or on location in Israel for the next phase of Zion’s operations.

Zion’s MJ-02 well has been completed through casing, liner, and cementing. Ongoing operations include well stimulation and DST testing. All necessary equipment to conduct the well stimulation and DST testing are in-country despite the global logistical backlog.

Simultaneously with the new exploration license filing, Zion has submitted a petition seeking administrative approval of a term of three-years for the #428 exploration license under Israel’s petroleum law.
