HOUSTON, Dec. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hyperdynamics (Amex: HDY)
today announced that its board of directors has set its annual shareholder
meeting for Tuesday, March 6, 2007. The meeting will be for shareholders of
record as of January 12, 2007, and will be held in Sugar Land, Texas.
Details of the matters of business and the location and time of the meeting
will be disclosed in the proxy statement to be filed in the near future.
"Looking back at 2006, we had an extremely productive year," said Kent
Watts, Hyperdynamics' chief executive officer. "The new production-sharing
contract we signed in September with the Republic of Guinea cleared the way
for us to advance our exploration work in West Africa. Working with
GlobalSanteFe's Applied Drilling Technologies, we are working out all the
logistics required to support offshore drilling operations, and we are
continuing to internally evaluate the five largest drilling prospects that
we have identified so far in our vast 31,000-plus-square-mile offshore
license area. At the same time we will be rolling out our data study group
beginning in January and seeking exploration partners to join our efforts,
giving us more bandwidth to cover more area faster in our endeavor to make
a major discovery offshore Guinea.
"Also, while working this year in Guinea, we learned of significant
needs of the people there and established American Friends of Guinea, or
AFG. AFG was chartered in March and approved by the IRS in August as a
tax-deductible charitable organization. American Friends of Guinea is now
prepared to accept tax-deductible stock and cash donations. I hope that all
our shareholders will consider giving to this worthy cause," added Watts.
AFG was established to provide medical aid and infrastructure through
qualified projects and initiatives in the Republic of Guinea. The goal is
to help our friends living there to realize greatly enhanced health care,
save lives that would otherwise be severely shortened or lost and help
improve their overall quality of life through improved healthcare. Cash
donations can be made electronically online at a new Website,
AFG accepts cash or stock donations. Checks or donated stock
certificates and related stock powers should be made out to "American
Friends of Guinea" and may be sent to:
