Ankara, Turkey, February 20, 2018 – Park Place Energy Inc. (OTCQB: PKPL) (“Park Place”) is pleased to announce it has acquired an additional 12.25% of the SASB gas field bringing its total interest to 49%.

The purchase price for the additional interest was USD $265,000 and 1.5 million shares of the company’s common stock. The company completed the purchase on February 8, 2018. Approval was received by regulators early January 2018 paving the way for the additional interest.

The SASB gas field is a shallow water offshore field located in the Black Sea, Turkey, with four platforms and several producing wells. Park Place is optimistic that the field has untapped potential and is working on assembling a program that will include six workovers, drilling two undeveloped discoveries and drilling one low risk exploration target from an existing platform, all which is expected to yield immediate gas production and revenues. The current price received for gas is approximately $6.0/mcf to the pipeline.

Note on Boe:  Barrels of oil equivalent or Boe, are derived by converting natural gas to oil at the ratio of six thousand cubic feet (“Mcf”) of natural gas equals one barrel of oil.  This conversion is derived from energy equivalency and does not represent a value equivalency and therefore may be misleading if used in isolation.
