Outlook

The Company remains focused on growing production and maximising financial returns. The high value-added, near-term work programme, combined with low operating costs, underpins the Board’s confidence that the robust financial performance will continue during Q4 ahead of initiating drilling operations in Q1 2018.

Bruce A. I. Dingwall CBE, Executive Chairman of Trinity, commented: 

As a Board, we have continued to maintain financial discipline on our capital spend and operating costs during the period. Our focus on the low hanging fruit, through our recompletion, reactivation, swabbing and workover programme has resulted in a 7.4% quarter-on-quarter increase in production and we anticipate further growth in production and profitability during the remainder of the year.”
