Oslo, 23 April 2013 — DNO International ASA (“DNO International”), the

Production Sharing Contract (PSC) covering Block SL18 onshore Somaliland.
The President of Somaliland, Ahmed M. Mohamoud Silanyo, and DNO International’s
Executive Chairman, Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani, attended the signing ceremony in
Washington, D.C. yesterday.
“This 12,000 square kilometer block adds substantial exploration acreage to DNO
International’s portfolio and in an area that is both prospective and
undrilled,” said Mossavar-Rahmani. He added that Somaliland falls within the

the Gulf of Aden in Yemen since the late 1990s.”
