"We are pleased to have signed this term sheet that sets basis for the new capital inflow in 2019. These funds would be used to accelerate our work programmes in the Taribani field as well as throughout Block 12, and would be instrumental in reaching our goal to achieve commercial development of Block 12 in Georgia.
