The company reduced its debt exposure by 42% and it ended the year with US$13.92mln of cash, following a US$5.32mln raise through share placings in the UK.

“This year has been transformational for Touchstone based on our successful listing on the London AIM market in June 2017 and the completion of a fundraising in December to finance our 2018 ten well drilling campaign,” said Paul Baay, Touchstone chief executive.

“This programme combined with an encouraging set of 2017 drilling results, has placed the company in an excellent position to achieve our near-term production target of 2,000 barrels per day, as current production is 1,654 barrels per day."

Baay said: "The company is in a healthy financial position, increasing cash and reducing net debt during 2017. We look forward to updating the market in due course as we build upon the strong platform that we established over the past year."
