ERHC Energy Provides Guidance to Previously Announced Rights Offering

Shareholders as of the close of business December 17, 2012 are eligible to receive subscription rights

ERHC Energy Inc. (OTCBB: ERHE), a publicly traded American company with oil and gas assets in Sub-Saharan Africa, has provided continuing guidance related to participating in the Company's ongoing rights offering. In late December, ERHC distributed on a pro rata basis one non-transferable subscription right for every three shares of common stock owned. Shareholders as of the close of business December 17, 2012 are eligible to receive subscription rights, each of which entitles the holder to purchase one share of the Company's common stock at a subscription price equal to $0.075 per share.

The Company plans to apply the funds to specific exploration and development activities in the Republics of Chad and Kenya, as well as for general corporate purposes and working capital needs.

The rights offering is being made only by means of the Prospectus Supplement filed by the Company with the SEC on December 27, 2012.

Shareholders who hold their shares directly should have recently received the Prospectus Supplement, together with a letter from the Company describing the rights offering, a Shareholder Subscription Rights Agreement, instructions for how to complete the shareholder subscription rights agreement, and IRS Form W-9. Those wishing to exercise their rights should review all materials, properly complete and execute the shareholder subscription rights agreement and deliver it and payment in full to the subscription agent:

Corporate Stock Transfer, Inc.

Attn: Operations Department

3200 Cherry Creek South Drive, Suite 430

Denver, Colorado 80209

Shareholders whose shares are held in street name through a brokerage account, bank or other nominee, will not receive the materials described above and must instruct their broker, bank, or nominee whether or not to exercise subscription rights on their behalf. Those wishing to obtain a separate shareholder subscription rights agreement should promptly contact their broker, bank, or other nominee with that request, although it is not necessary to have a physical shareholder subscription rights agreement to elect to exercise rights if shares are held in street name.

Shareholders who wish to exercise subscription rights but will be unable to deliver the shareholder subscription rights agreement prior to the expiration date can deliver a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery in accordance with the directions in the prospectus supplement.

Shareholders who fully exercise their basic subscription rights are eligible to over-subscribe to purchase shares of ERHC common stock offered in the rights offering that are not purchased by other rights holders pursuant to their basic subscription privilege. Those wishing to exercise their over-subscription privilege must specify the number of additional shares they wish to purchase, which may be up to the maximum number of shares of common stock offered in the rights offering, less the number of shares purchased under the shareholder's basic subscription privilege. If there are not enough shares of common stock to satisfy all subscriptions pursuant to the exercise of the over-subscription privilege, we will allocate the shares that are available for purchase under the over-subscription privilege on a pro rata basis among those rights holders who exercise their over-subscription privilege.

The rights offering is scheduled to terminate at 5:00 p.m., central time, on January 31, 2013, unless extended. Holders of rights will need to exercise their subscription rights prior to that time and date.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy shares of the Company's common stock, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.

Those with questions can direct them to the subscription agent, Corporate Stock Transfer, 303-282-4800, or to Dan Keeney, ERHC Investor Relations, 214-432-7556, or e-mail [email protected]. A copy of the Prospectus Supplement may be obtained from the subscription agent, Corporate Stock Transfer, Inc. (Attn: Operations Department), 3200 Cherry Creek South Drive, Suite 430, Denver, Colorado 80209.
