Zion Oil & Gas Rights Offering Ends

DALLAS and CAESAREA, Israel, July 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZN) announced today that on July 15, 2010 it completed its previously announced rights offering. The preliminary outcome of the rights offering, as of the close of business on July 15, 2010, indicates that subscriptions of approximately 2.3 million shares, for gross proceeds of approximately $11.5 million, will be accepted (including over-subscription). All shareholders that requested over-subscription shares will be awarded their full over-subscription request.

Zion's Chief Executive Officer, Richard Rinberg, said today, "I am pleased to announce the successful conclusion of our rights offering notwithstanding significant adverse market conditions. While the $11.5 million proceeds is not enough by itself to proceed with our planned drilling subsidiary, it will provide us with financial and operating flexibility and will enable us to further our exploration and drilling program significantly."

Under the completed rights offering, holders of record of Zion's common stock were given non-transferable subscription rights to purchase one share of common stock for every two shares of stock owned, as of the close of business on May 6, 2010. Each subscription right entitled the holder to purchase one share of Zion stock at a price of $5.00, irrespective of the market price.

Zion is currently conducting site construction in anticipation for drilling its next well, the Ma'anit-Joseph # 3 well. Drilling is scheduled to begin in August 2010.

For updates on the drilling activity please visit Zion's website " www.zionoil.com".

Zion's common stock trades on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol "ZN" and Zion's warrants trade under the symbol "ZNWAW".
