Toronto, Ontario and Calgary, Alberta– May 15, 2018 – Blox Labs Inc. (“BLOX”) (CSE: BLOX) (Frankfurt: BR1B) is pleased to announce that, in partnership with Sonoro Energy Ltd. (“SNV”) (TSXV: SNV) (Frankfurt: FDZN) (OTC: SNVFF), BLOX has commenced development of “PetroBLOX”, a Blockchain-based smart contract supply chain management platform for the global oil and gas industry.
Through the utilization of best in class smart contracts and decentralized application technologies, PetroBLOX will aim to enable and enhance workflow, maximize project management efficiency, and increase the level of transparency in the global Exploration and Production (“E&P”) space.

Phase 1 development of PetroBLOX has begun and will include, among other things, refining project scope and modelling itemization, an environmental scan of the E&P industry status quo, PetroBLOX branding, and the completion of a Blockchain Whitepaper.
“BLOX is pleased to have entered into this partnership with Sonoro Energy whereby their expertise in the various facets of the oil and gas sector will bring valuable input to the development of PetroBLOX”, stated Jeff Zanini, President & CEO of BLOX. “Our Ethereum backed smart contract platform will greatly benefit the supply chain flow and increase efficiencies to an industry which is largely still reliant on manual processes. Our clients vision of digitization and enabling immutable record keeping is visionary in this space, and we are pleased to partner with Sonoro Energy on this project”.
Chris Atkinson, Chairman of Sonoro Energy stated “We are excited to be entering into a partnership with BLOX, that possesses and brings valuable information and expertise in Block Chain technology.
