Zion Oil & Gas, a Delaware corporation, explores for oil and gas onshore in Israel. We hold the Megiddo-Jezreel Petroleum Exploration License No. 401 (covering approximately 98,000 acres), which adjoins our Jordan Valley License No. 393 (covering approximately 56,000 acres). Over the last several months, we have had Geomage (Israel-based seismic company) and Eskaton Seismic (U.S. based seismic company) reprocess a total of approximately 168 kilometers of existing seismic data over both license areas. Eskaton's reprocessing efforts in particular have enhanced our geologic understanding of the structures such that we identified several exploration leads that we hope to soon develop into drillable prospects. This summer, we plan to acquire an additional 34 kilometers of new 2D Vibroseis seismic data to further refine our potential drilling location(s).
Zion is planning to hold its 2014 Annual Shareholders' Meeting on Monday, June 9, 2014 at the Dan Caesarea Hotel in Caesarea, Israel at 2:00 p.m. local time, which is near the Zion offices in Caesarea, Israel.
