88 Energy continues countdown to Charlie-1 well in Alaska

88 Energy PLCs (LON:88E) countdown to its exciting Charlie-1 well continues with the explorers quarterly update today highlighting details about the upcoming programme, located in one section of Project Icewine on Alaskas North Slope.

The company recently confirmed it is on-track to drill Charlie alongside new partner Premier Oil PLC (LON:PMO), with the joint venture agreement currently in the process of being rubberstamped, and said a February 2020 spud date is anticipated.

Todays statement further detailed the scope and opportunity at Charlie which is planned as an appraisal of the conventional and undeveloped Malguk discovery, made by BP in the early 1990s.

“Malguk-1 encountered oil shows with elevated resistivity and mud gas readings over multiple horizons during drilling but was not tested due to complications towards the end of operations, which resulted in lack of time before the close of the winter drilling season,” 88 Energy noted in its statement.

88 Energy PLCs (LON:88E) countdown to its exciting Charlie-1 well continues with the explorers quarterly update today highlighting details about the upcoming programme, located in one section of Project Icewine on Alaskas North Slope.

Todays statement further detailed the scope and opportunity at Charlie which is planned as an appraisal of the conventional and undeveloped Malguk discovery, made by BP in the early 1990s.

“Malguk-1 encountered oil shows with elevated resistivity and mud gas readings over multiple horizons during drilling but was not tested due to complications towards the end of operations, which resulted in lack of time before the close of the winter drilling season,” 88 Energy noted in its statement.

“It was also drilled using vintage 2D seismic, which was insufficient to adequately determine the extent of any of the prospective targets encountered.”

READ: 88 Energys Charlie may be the explorers best opportunity to date

The small-cap explorer added: “88 Energy completed (the) acquisition of modern 3D seismic in 2018, in order to determine the extent of the discovered oil accumulations. Charlie-1 will intersect seven stacked prospects, four of which are interpreted as oil bearing in Malguk‑1 and are therefore considered appraisal targets.”

Pre-drill the project has been estimated to have some 1.6bn barrels of prospective resources, which would equate to a still eye-watering 480mln barrels for the small-cap junior partner – presently valued at about £50mln (A$96mln).

Premier Oil is to pay up to US$23mln of Charlies well costs, as it earns 60% of the project.

Drilling is slated to start in February and, subject to initial findings, well testing is envisaged and would conclude by April.

The drill rig for the programme has been secured and permitting work continues, with the Premier joint venture deal expected to be sealed next month.

In mid-September, 88 Energy raised A$6.75mln to cover any additional costs at Charlie over and above the expenditure being carried by Premier.

Fertozs executive chairman Patrick Avery said: “The deal with ADM not only de-risks the company from a volume growth target perspective, it also represents strong validation of the quality of our organic rock phosphate fertilisers and blends from a global leader in food production, processing, storage and transportation.

“With consumer desire for simple, wholesome food driving growth in the organic category, ADM has introduced and expanded a range of organic products, including grains, beans, seeds and flours.

“As demand for organic packaged foods has grown among label-conscious consumers, so too has demand for organic inputs.

“We are pleased that after reviewing a range of competing products, ADM has chosen to market Fertoz's organic rock phosphate to its substantial grower and distributor network.

Targeting organic farmers

“Following our recent efforts to gather contact details of organic farmers, we are now targeting all relevant potential customers within a 100-mile radius of our key distribution centres.

“This targeted approach is generating promising leads that we expect to convert into sales in 2020.

“This should compensate for the lower-than-expected sales in 2019, whichRead More – Source
