Zion Oil & Gas Retains Radix Inc. as Consulting Geophysicists on Asher-Menashe Seismic Survey

    CAESAREA, ISRAEL, September 20 /CNW/ - Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. (AMEX:  ZN) of
Dallas, Texas and Caesarea, Israel, announced today that it has engaged Ernest
R. Ayers, President and CEO of Radix Inc., Ft. Davis, Texas, as its consulting
geophysicist for the design and field supervision of its upcoming geophysical
survey to be conducted in its Asher-Menashe License area between Caesarea and
Haifa, Israel.

    Radix Inc. specializes in seismic processing, field acquisition design
and implementation. It has earned a reputation in creating solutions utilizing
continuous velocity analysis methods and has software capabilities that
include unique lithological tools. Mr. Ayers has 34 years experience as a
processing and consulting geophysicist.

    As previously announced on September 17, 2007, Zion signed an agreement
with the Geophysical Institute of Israel to conduct one of the largest and
most comprehensive geophysical surveys on-shore in Israel of the past two
decades aimed at selecting the optimal drilling site for a test well on its
Ramot Menashe (Menashe Heights) prospect and upgrading the company's Nahal
Me'arot lead (nearby the Asher-Atlit No. 1 well) into a drillable prospect.

    Zion Oil & Gas, a Delaware corporation, explores for oil and gas in
Israel, onshore between Tel-Aviv and Haifa. It currently holds a 78,000 acre
exploration license, known as the Asher-Menashe License, located between
Caesarea and Haifa. Its application for the issuance of an 85,000 acre
exploration license, tentatively named the Joseph License, located between
Caesarea and Netanya, on which the company drilled a 15,842 foot well in 2005,
is currently pending before the Israel Petroleum Commission. A decision on the
application is expected during September or October 2007.
