BARON OIL PLC is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company incorporated in the UK in April 2004 and has recently changed direction by withdrawing from high-risk, capital-intensive deep-water exploration to concentrate on low to medium risk exploration prospects in areas that can be quickly and relatively cheaply developed and monetized

Block XXI - onshore exploration (100% interest). Following the acquisition of a grid of new 2D seismic data in 2015/16, Baron has identified a new prospect close to the 1954 Minchales-1X well that encountered a small gas accumulation. The Company is currently working on plans to drill well El Barco-3X to a total depth of 1850 metres in 2018 to test for gas in Miocene Mancora sands and both oil and gas in fractured Basement.

Baron has agreed to farm in to this licence, which lies immediately south of the giant Wytch Farm oilfield off the Dorset coast in southern England. The Company will pay 6.67% of the estimated £6.4 million costs of a well to be drilled to a total depth of 1800 metres in the second or third quarter of 2018 to evaluate whether a discovery made in 1986 was drilled on the flank of a commercially-viable accumulation
