This Form 8-K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the Form 8-K filed on April 23, 2010 (the “Original 8-K”) by Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. ("Zion" or the "Company").  The purpose of this Amendment is to provide updated information as to the timing of the charge to the Company's accounts of the non-cash impairment charge disclosed in the Original 8-K.

Item 2.06: Material Impairments
  
Unproved Oil and Gas Properties

The Company previously disclosed in the Original 8-K that under generally accepted accounting principles applicable to the Company, the Company would be recording an estimated non-cash impairment charge of approximately $18,000,000 to its unproved oil and gas properties to be included in the Company’s unaudited financial statements for the period ending March 31, 2010. The determination was made following the completion of the production testing on the Ma’anit-Rehoboth #2 well.

In connection with the filing on May 14, 2010 of the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2010 (the “First Quarter Report”), following consultation with its auditors the Company determined that the impairment charge should be appropriately recorded in the Company’s unaudited financial statement for the period ending June 30, 2010. Accordingly, the Company disclosed in its First Quarter Report that it intends to record an impairment charge of approximately $19,500,000 to its unproved oil and gas properties in the Company’s unaudited financial statements for the three months ended June 30, 2010.
