Upland Resources Limited (LSE: UPL), the oil and gas company actively building a portfolio of attractive upstream assets, is pleased to announce that it has formally notified Corallian Energy Limited (“Corallian”) that its wholly-owned subsidiary Upland Resources (UK Onshore) Limited (“Upland UK”) has sufficient funds to satisfy its obligations under the farm-in agreement dated 29 November 2017 entered into by Upland UK with Corallian for a 40% working interest in UK Seaward Production Licence P2235 (UKCS Block 11/24b) (the “P2235 Farm-in Agreement”) and that the board of Upland has approved the farm-in by Upland UK. Such notification satisfies one of the conditions to completion of the P2235 Farm-in Agreement, but completion remains conditional on, inter alia, the approval by the UK Oil & Gas Authority of Upland UK as a farminee to the P2235 Licence and the P2235 Licence continuing in full force and effect.
In addition, Corallian has informed Upland UK that the UK Oil & Gas Authority has agreed to the appointment of Fraser Well Management Limited as the well operator for the Wick well, due to spud in Q3 this year.
Steve Staley, Upland Resources CEO, said:
“The appointment of Fraser Well Management is another important step towards realising our goal of spudding the Wick well in Q3 this year. Good progress is being made, the environmental survey work over the surrounding area being completed earlier this month. This near term drilling opportunity opens Upland up to potentially transformative value growth and I look forward to updating shareholders on further progress when appropriate.”
