SAN DIEGO, Jan. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ziyen Energy, a division of Ziyen Inc. continues success as the company wins its third oil contract in the Illinois basin in Indiana. The “Big Bill” lease sits on over 140 acres of land in Gibson County, Indiana.

Alastair Caithness, CEO, said:

“It’s great to start the year by winning our third oil contract for the company.  The Big Bill lease has the potential to deliver oil equivalent or more to our first lease.  It could potentially contain more than 500,000+ barrels of crude oil reserves contributing to the company goal of acquiring US$500 million in oil reserves in 2018. Our Petroleum Reservoir Engineers will be providing a detailed report in the coming weeks on the exact reserves.”

Ziyen Inc. CEO appears on the NASDAQ Board alongside Bill Ross, landowners of the Big Bill Lease

In 2017, Ziyen Energy acquired two oil leases, one of which contains probable and proven oil reserves that are estimated in excess of US$36 million dollars. Oil samples and geological reports have been carried out and Ziyen Energy plans to begin oil production in the summer of 2018.

Alastair Caithness:

“The Illinois Basin was once the third biggest oil producing region in America, and is the current focus of the company to operate in the Midwest.  Creating partnerships with the farmers who own the land is key for Ziyen.  Bill Ross has farmed the land for over 60 years, he has nurtured the land and still works every day farming crops.  We understand this coming from the rural communities in Scotland, and it’s important to show respect for the farmers by operating environmental techniques to provide minimal disruption to the land they operate on a daily basis.”
