HOUSTON, September 17, 2008 - ERHC Energy Inc. (OTCBB: ERHE), a publicly traded American company with oil and gas assets in the highly prospective Gulf of Guinea off the coast of central West Africa, today announced that its Houston headquarters has reopened. Like most Houston-based companies, ERHC's operations were temporarily disrupted due to loss of power and water to its building.
Even though ERHC's operations are back to normal, the community of Houston continues a slow recovery from Hurricane Ike. The entire ERHC family sends its thoughts and prayers to those who have been effected by the storm and we hope for a rapid and safe recovery.
