Continental Receives Foreign Direct Investment License

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Continental Energy Corporation (OTCQB: CPPXF) (the "Company"), an emerging developer of small scale refineries integrated with local crude oil feedstock production, today announced that it has received a foreign direct investment license from BKPM, the Indonesian agency responsible for coordinating international investments.

The license permits the Company to incorporate PT Continental Hilir Indonesia ("PT-CHI"), a new, foreign owned, limited liability subsidiary company in Indonesia. PT-CHI will be charged with the task of creating new business opportunities for the Company within the "downstream" ("hilir" in Indonesian) oil and gas sector.

Through PT-CHI, the Company shall offer management consulting services and joint venture opportunities to local Indonesian crude oil producers, regional investors, and the energy infrastructure development enterprises of regency or provincial level governments. Any one of whom may be a strategic partner, investor or stakeholder in the Company's future downstream projects.

Company director, Karsani Aulia, will head up the new unit as its President, Director and CEO, and he said "Establishing PT-CHI gives Continental Energy the ideal Indonesian business operating platform. We have already identified several promising downstream opportunities and now with PT-CHI, we have the vehicle through which we can take action to tie them up and bring them to fruition."

On behalf of the Company, 
Robert V. Rudman, CPA 
Chief Financial Officer
