Icewine-2 Operations Update

The Icewine-2 well was shut-in on 10th July for a six week period to allow for imbibition and pressure build up to occur within the HRZ shale. Flow testing is scheduled to re-commence week beginning 21st August.   

Additional technical analyses are ongoing and will be communicated once complete.  

Lease Position Expanded

The Project Icewine Joint Venture was awarded 109,817 gross acres on 7th July as part of a broader package of successful bids submitted in the December 2016 North Slope lease sale. Of these 109,817 gross acres, 76,996 gross acres (48,864 net to 88E) were recently taken up and paid for. Given the ongoing testing of Icewine-2, a decision was made to accept award on acreage where the coincidence of prospectivity for both the conventional and unconventional was greatest. An additional ~256,000 gross acres is subject to award, expected later this year. The current lease position for the Joint Venture is summarised below.
