CALGARY, Canada (July 19, 2017)- Sonoro Energy Ltd.

The drilling rig contracted from PT Pontil, a subsidiary of Major Drilling Group International, has passed the latest stage of certifications, including completion of function and load tests, with final structural certification to be carried out in the next few days. Logistics of moving the drilling rig, along with associated equipment and services, have been finalized with an Indonesian transportation company.
