Savannah Energy PLC

("Savannah" or the "Company")



First Gas Sales to TransAfam Power Limited


Savannah Energy PLC, the British independent energy company focused around
the delivery of Projects that Matter in Africa, is pleased to announce that
Accugas Limited ("Accugas"), the Company's 80% indirectly owned subsidiary,
has commenced gas sales to TransAfam Power Limited ("TAPL") in relation to the
provision of gas for use at its power plants in Rivers State, Nigeria.


As previously announced on 6 June 2022, Savannah signed an interruptible gas
sales agreement ("GSA") with TAPL to supply up to 35 MMscfpd daily for an
initial three-month period, with the option to extend for a mutually agreed
period. The plant is connected to the Accugas network via the Nigerian Gas
Company pipeline from Ikot Abasi.


Andrew Knott, CEO, Savannah Energy, said:

"I am delighted to report we have already begun first gas sales to TAPL,
having signed an agreement at the beginning of this month. This will be the
third customer we have commenced new gas supply to in the past month. We have
now signed and operationalised GSAs with power plants comprising around 24% of
the country's thermal generation capacity (up from 14% at the same time last
year) demonstrating our dedication to the Nigerian industry and being the
energy partner of choice."


Vincent Ozoude, MD/CEO, TransAfam Power Limited, commented:

"We are pleased that the gas supply from Accugas Limited to our plant has
commenced. This, as earlier mentioned, will support in boosting our plant
capacity recovery programme and improving power generation to the country."


Speaking on the development, the President, Transcorp Group, Mrs Owen
Omogiafo, said:

"The commencement of the gas supply by Accugas Limited to our subsidiary
TransAfam is in line with our strategic intent of increasing power generation
in Nigeria, noting the role of energy in the nation's development. We remain
committed to optimising our installed capacities across our various plants, as
leaders in the sector."
