Operations Update - Interim Results from Drilling
· Oil shows have been observed whilst drilling within the Nanushuk Formation in the Winx-1 exploration well
o Preliminary review of the interval suggests that the zone in which the shows were encountered is at the lower end of the range required for commerciality; however, further petrophysical analysis is necessary
· No oil shows were recorded in the shallower secondary target (Seabee turbidites)
· Forward plan is to continue drilling to test the deeper objectives
Western Leases - Winx-1 Exploration Well
The Winx-1 exploration well intersected a zone of interest in the Nanushuk Formation between 4,460' and 4,530' on the 28th
The forward plan is to continue drilling ahead to TD to test the deeper objectives.
A chart detailing the Winx-1 drilling and testing schedule (base case) and a map of the Winx-1 Well Location and Regional Nanushuk/Torok Discovery Wells can be viewed at the link below:
Winx-1 is located ~4 miles east of the Horseshoe-1/1A well that significantly extended the highly successful Nanushuk topset play fairway to the south. Winx-1 will target gross best estimate prospective oil resource of 400 million barrels of oil (144 million barrels net to 88E) across multiple stacked objectives, including the Nanushuk Formation, which is the primary target of the well.
Cautionary Statement: The estimated quantities of petroleum that may be potentially recovered by the application of a future development project relate to undiscovered accumulations. These estimates have both an associated risk of discovery and a risk of development. Further exploration, appraisal and evaluation are required to determine the existence of a significant quantity of potentially movable hydrocarbons.
