Andrew Hockey, Chairman of Sound Oil, commented,  "It has been a pleasure to have been Chairman of Sound Oil through its recent period of significant change. With the Company now fully focused on delivering value from its Italian portfolio and Continental secured as an institutional shareholder, we are now well placed for the future. To assure further growth the Board has agreed that the Chairman's role will be best filled by Simon Davies who is able to devote significant time to the position."
 
Simon Davies commented,  "I am extremely pleased to assume the role of Chairman at this pivotal moment in the Company's history.  I wish to thank Andrew for his contribution in positioning the Company for its next exciting phase of growth and look forward to continuing to work with him on the Board of Directors."
