Pantheon Resources (PANR.L) Theta West Drilling Permit Approval & AGM Webinar

Pantheon Resources plc (“Pantheon” or “the Company”), the AIM-quoted oil and gas company with a 100% working interest in all of its oil projects spanning c. 153,000 acres adjacent and near to transportation and pipeline infrastructure on the Alaska North Slope, is pleased to provide the following update:

Drilling permit approved – Theta West #1

Pantheon is pleased to announce that it has received notification from the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission that the permit required to drill the Theta West #1 well has been approved.

On January 5, 2022, the Nordic Calista #3 rig arrived at the Talitha A pad to begin an exciting winter campaign that will include re-entry and testing of the Talitha A well and drilling the Theta West #1 well.

Operations Update

The Nordic Calista #3 rig is on location at the Talitha #A well where it will complete works to prepare the well for testing, prior to being mobilised to the Theta West #1 location for the spudding of that well. Given that Talitha #A is already drilled and cased, a smaller coiled tubing unit will be utilised for testing of that well, once preparation works have been completed with the larger rig. The ice road to Theta West is still under construction, with the approximately one mile still to be fortified and completed. Following this, the pad will be constructed prior to the move of the rig.
