We look forward to their presence on our leadership team through Permex’s acceleration, growth and speed adoption in drilling programs to realize the true potential of our expanding footprint of reserves.”

Mr. Bryan commented: “Permex stands to greatly benefit from its evolving position within the North American oil and gas market. I believe the experience I gained working at the forefront of the industry, including my tenure at Gulf Canada, will enable me to effectively advise the Permex management team through what I anticipate will be a prosperous era for the company.”

Mr. Lendrum commented: “I look forward to the opportunity to working closely with the Permex management team as the company advances its operational strategy.
