CALGARY, Canada / TheNewswire / September 14, 2017– Sonoro Energy Ltd. ("Sonoro" or "the Company") (TSX-V: SNV), is pleased to announce that the drilling rig from PT Advanced Services Indonesia ("ASI") has mobilized from Balikpapan, sailed across the Makassar Strait, and is now moored and being unloaded in the Indonesian province of West Sulawesi.

Sonoro expects to have the drilling rig moved in the next week to its LG-1 Up-dip site on the Budong Budong Production Sharing Contract (PSC) lease, where it will be readied for drilling operations along with other drilling services. Spudding of the LG-1 Up-dip appraisal well–targeting the Pliocene Lisu sands, with a potential unrisked 15.9 million barrels-of-oil equivalent resource as previously reported–is expected to occur the week of Sept. 25, 2017 or possibly sooner, depending on weather, road conditions, and final inspection and approval by SKKMIGAS to begin drilling.

"Our team and ASI’s team are now fully focused on mobilizing to the LG-1 Up-dip well site, and getting the rig set up to start drilling operations. It took a lot of effort from everyone involved to get to this point–and now we’re excited to get going, and focused on carrying out drilling operations diligently and safely," says Sonoro’s Chief Executive Officer and Director Richard Wadsworth.

"With this being the first well drilled in West Sulawesi since the original LG-1 well in 2010, there is a lot of interest in this well being a success," he adds.

Sonoro has posted additional photos to its website, detailing the various activities and chronicling the progress made in advance of Budong Budong PSC drilling activity.
