Zion Oil & Gas Operational Update on Megiddo-Jezreel #1 Well in Israel

Current Rights Offering Will Not be Extended Beyond May 31, 2018

DALLAS and CAESAREA, Israel, May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. (ZN) announces that it expects to commence perforation, stimulation and flow back operations on its Megiddo-Jezreel #1 (MJ #1) well as early as next week in Israel.  

Zion Oil & Gas, Megiddo-Jezreel #1 Well Testing

Zion's President and Chief Operations Officer, Dustin Guinn, stated, "After extensive well preparation, rig up and endurance testing of our service provider's imported well testing equipment, which includes additional well control equipment, flare stacks, separation units, slick line unit, stimulation and storage equipment, we are ready to begin the highly anticipated testing and flow back of the MJ #1 well.  We recognize that this has taken longer than expected, but the fact remains that Zion has just surpassed one year without a recordable incident, a great achievement, and we will not increase our risk profile to save a few days.  While we do not have a definite timeline for the testing of each zone, especially if we need to perform extended flow back testing, we expect basic testing to require approximately 7-10 days per zone to perforate, run tubing, monitor flow, stimulate and resume monitoring flow.  Extended testing will require more time."

Zion's CEO, Victor G. Carrillo, added, "Having recently returned from Israel, we remain very excited about and anxiously await results from our upcoming well testing operations.  In addition, we celebrate the State of Israel's 70th anniversary as a nation and I heartily applaud and commend the President's decision to move the US Embassy to JerusalemIsrael's eternal capital. Mazal Tov to Israel!"

The current Rights Offering expires at 5:00pm Eastern Standard Time, on May 31, 2018 and will not be extended. All shareholders that held ten or more shares on April 13, 2018, are eligible to participate until then.

Zion's 2018 Annual Shareholders Meeting will be held on June 5 at 2:00 pm at the Westin Park Central Hotel in Dallas, Texas.  If you are a shareholder planning to attend, please register through our website (www.zionoil.com/2018-annual-meeting-of-shareholders/).

    Could Enbridge Inc. Be a Millionaire-Maker Stock?

    Enbridge (NYSE: ENB) has made its investors lots of money over the years. To put that into perspective, if an investor had bought $10,000 worth of Enbridge's stock 20 years ago, it would be worth about $116,000 today assuming they reinvested their dividends. While Enbridge has done an excellent job creating wealth for investors in the past, it faces an uphill battle in making them millionaires in the future.

    Facebook under fire as US officials back removal of Zuckerberg as chairman

    Mark Zuckerberg came under fresh pressure after four US officials called for a boardroom shakeup at Facebook. Three state treasurers and a top official from New York have joined a shareholders’ motion to install an independent chairman at Facebook, claiming the move would improve governance and accountability. In June, Boston-based Trillium Asset Management, which holds $11m in Facebook shares, launched an effort to split the role of chairman and chief executive at Facebook following scandals over the hacking of personal data from millions of users and claims of hate speech and election-rigging.

    Millions of seniors collect Social Security, and without it, they'd be underwater on their bills. At present, the average retiree gets $1,422 a month in Social Security benefits. There's a world of misinformation surrounding Social Security, and perhaps one of the most detrimental myths out there is the notion that the program is enough to sustain seniors by itself.

    Companies pay investors dividends but they also retain some of their earnings. Over time, companies invest these retained earnings at a higher rate of return and that ultimately boosts their share prices, benefiting their investors. J.P.

Former CEO John Flannery warned French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire in June that the target was "out of reach", and the government raised the possibility of fines worth 50,000 euros ($57,570) for each job not created. GE's new CEO Larry Culp, who took up his post at the start of the month, told Le Maire in a meeting on Wednesday that France remained a strategic country for the company, the ministry said in statement.
