Item 1.01 
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On October 11, 2011, Zion Oil & Gas, Inc. (the "Company") entered into the Third Amendment to Lease Agreement (the “Lease Amendment”) with Hermosa, L.P., a Texas limited partnership (the "Lessor") for the renewal of the lease of its current office premises in Dallas, Texas, as well as the leasing of additional adjacent space in the building. The lease for the Company’s current office premises is due to expire on October 31, 2011.

Pursuant to the Lease Amendment, the lease term on the existing office space, as well as the additional premises described below, has been extended to October 31, 2015. In addition to the office premises it currently occupies, the Lease Amendment also covers an additional 1,351 rentable square feet in Suite 302 and 1,324 rentable square feet of space in Suite 304. The total rentable area under the Lease Amendment covers 6,458 rentable square feet.

Rent is to be paid on a monthly basis and shall be $6,996.17 per month for each month commencing November 1, 2011 through October 31, 2012; thereafter, $7,534.33 for each month through October 31, 2013; $7,534.33 for each month through October 31, 2014 and $8,072.50 for each month through October 31, 2015. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties have agreed that so long as there is no event of default under the Lease Amendment, the monthly payments for Suite 304 in the monthly amount of $1,434.33 through October 31, 2012 and $1,544.67 thereafter through October 31, 2013 are to be abated. Accordingly, assuming an event of default has not occurred, the monthly rent through October 31, 2012 will be $5,561.84 and $5,989.66. The Company is also obligated to pay its pro-rated portion of all operating expenses.

The foregoing is a summary of certain material provisions of the Lease Amendment and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Lease Amendment, attached hereto as exhibit 10.1.
