Oilex Ltd


15 June 2010


Oilex Ltd (ASX/AIM: OEX) advises that the Joint Venture covering onshore Block
56 in Oman (Oilex 25% interest and operator) has given notice of its intention
to relinquish the entire Block 56 Contract Area following discussions with the
Oman Ministry of Oil and Gas (MOG).

The decision to relinquish Block 56, which has been made in accordance with the
Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement (EPSA), follows a detailed review
of the prospectivity of the Block following exploration activities conducted
over the past four years.

On behalf of the Block 56 Joint Venture, Oilex Oman Limited (as Operator) will
proceed to close down Joint Venture activities to the mutual satisfaction of
the MOG and the Joint Venture at the earliest reasonable date. The Joint
Venture appreciates the cooperation of the MOG that has been extended in this

The amount the Joint Venture has incurred on exploration and appraisal
activities to date is in excess of the amount required to be expended under the

The decision to relinquish Block 56 is consistent with Oilex's increasing focus
on its onshore assets in India, its offshore exploration acreage in the North
West Shelf of Western Australia and new ventures opportunities in India and
South East Asia.


Block 56 is located onshore in South Oman. The Government of the Sultanate of
Oman awarded the block to the Joint Venture in 2006 with the EPSA signed on 28
June of that year.

Three small discoveries were made in Block 56 arising out of the subsequent
work program that was completed (Sarha-1, Ghadaq-1, Al Jumd-1). The Joint
Venture has determined that those discoveries are not commercial to develop
under the terms of the EPSA due to their small field size or heavy oil

In recent months the Joint Venture has closely reviewed the remaining
prospectivity of Block 56. The Joint Venture has determined that the
exploration plays have been adequately tested and that further exploration
activities are not commercially justified on the basis of prospect size and
likely oil type. As a result the Joint Venture has determined to notify the MOG
of their intention to voluntarily relinquish Block 56.

The participating interests in Block 56 are as follows:

Joint Venture Party                                    Participating Interest  
Oilex Oman Ltd (Operator)                                       25%            
Videocon Industries Limited                                     25%            
GAIL (India) Limited                                            25%            
Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited                           12.5%           
Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited                        12.5%
