Brian Larkin CEO, United Oil and Gas PLC:
Today's announcement is further proof of the quality of the assets that United has agreed to acquire. Abu Sennan has a historic drilling success rate of over 80% and rising. Over the last year production at the licence has gone from just over 800 boepd to 1100 boepd net as a result of the successful four well development drilling campaign. While we will wait to see the sustainable production levels on the ASH-2 well over the coming weeks, these initial results are excellent and we are confident that this well will further increase production. There is already a work programme in place for 2020, which will deliver a further four wells, significantly increasing newsflow from the Company. We expect the transaction to complete in January 2020 following satisfaction of final conditions precedent.
