Zion Oil & Gas announces new CEO

Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. announced the appointment of Dustin Guinn as Chief Executive Officer of Zion Oil & Gas with immediate effect.

“I am very excited about the continued opportunity to help Zion fulfil its vision of helping Israel become energy independentâ€?, expressed Dustin Guinn. “I have been intimately involved in the Megiddo Jezreel #1 (MJ #1) Project as President and COO, and my optimism remains high. I am fully aware of the investment, both financially and emotionally, that our shareholders have made in Zion’s current MJ #1 Project, and I do not take that lightly. I also understand the challenges that we face to fulfil the vision and am accepting the position as CEO, in part, as a response to those challenges. I view these challenges as an opportunity to overcome and succeed. I believe in Zion, the MJ #1 Project and look forward to our best days ahead.â€?

Zion’s petrophysical analysis, in conjunction with observations while drilling the MJ #1 well, has identified five additional primary zones of interest above the Mohilla formation that, contingent upon adequate financial resources, Zion plans to test. As it has been previously reported, there are naturally fractured carbonates in the shallower zones that have effective reservoir potential. That, coupled with internal and 3rd party petrophysical analysis of Zion’s open hole logs, gives Zion optimism and confidence to proceed with further testing, and Zion believes that it is imperative to test these zones of interest.
