HARKEN AWARDS BAHRAIN SEISMIC CONTRACT

 HARKEN AWARDS BAHRAIN SEISMIC CONTRACT
 DALLAS, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Harken Energy Corporation ("Harken")


(AMEX: HEC) of Dallas today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Harken Bahrain Oil Company, has awarded a contract to Fairfield Industries, Inc. ("Fairfield"), under which Fairfield will obtain approximately 90 line kilometers of radio telemetry seismic reflection data onshore and offshore Muharraq Island ("Muharraq"), Bahrain.
 Muharraq is one of two islands contained within the geographic area set out in Harken's Production Sharing Agreement, which primarily covers Bahrain's offshore areas. The seismic survey is part of Harken's ongoing exploration program in Bahrain.
 Fairfield is expected to mobilize personnel and equipment to Bahrain in the near future. It is anticipated that the actual seismic acquisition will commence in mid-December 1991 and be completed by mid-January 1992.
 Mikel D. Faulkner, Harken's chairman, stated, "While we continue to focus on the drilling of the first well, we are eager to select other prospects for subsequent drilling. Several potential prospects have already been identified. This seismic data will be instrumental in our selection of the next prospects to be drilled."
 Harken stated that the drilling of its initial exploratory well offshore Bahrain, which began Nov. 10, 1991, is proceeding on schedule. This initial well will be drilled to a total depth of 14,500 feet. It is anticipated that drilling to total depth will require approximately 90 days from start of drilling. After total depth is reached, Harken anticipates approximately 30 days will be required for testing. The primary formations to be tested are the Jurassic Arab at approximately 7,300 feet and the Permian Khuff at approximately 13,300 feet.
 Harken Energy Corporation explores for, develops and produces oil and gas reserves domestically and internationally. Harken also provides oilfield services.
