Grid Power Update

The Company is pleased to announce that further to the 27 June 2019 announcement, in which VOG detailed that it had received the ENEO invoice for January 2019, the Company has received further payment from ENEO to settle the February 2019 invoice totaling $0.8 million (net). An amount of approximately $2.6 million (net) remains outstanding, not including amounts to be invoiced for June.

Now that all the necessary financial processes have resumed, the GDC management team is confident that all future ENEO payments will be forthcoming in accordance with the existing binding term sheet. As noted in the announcement of 27 June 2019, this term sheet will soon be supplemented by a fully termed agreement and payment guarantee.

CHL has commenced proceedings against both Gaz du Cameroun S.A and Victoria Oil and Gas Plc with regard to payments CHL believes it is entitled to under the Royalty Agreement.
