(TSXV: SEI OTCQB: SEUSF) reports that ExxonMobil sent Patriot Energy Oil and Gas Inc., a subsidiary of the company, a notice stating that, based on the terms of the Joint Operating Agreement between ExxonMobil and Patriot (the “JOA”), it had decided to withdraw from the JOA as of 31 May 2023.

Management has engaged legal and technical advisors for assistance in addressing this unexpected change of events”.

The company fully reserves its rights under the contracts governing VMM-37 and applicable laws and regulations.
