UK Oil & Gas PLC (AIM:UKOG) PEDL234 Loxley gas discovery update

UK Oil & Gas PLC (London AIM: UKOG) is pleased to announce that the North Sea Transition Authority (“NSTA”) has granted its consent to a modified PEDL234 Retention Area (“RA”) work programme. The revision will permit the Company to focus licence activities entirely upon the acceleration of the planned appraisal campaign of its material 100%-owned Loxley gas discovery.

In accordance with the revised RA programme, the Company has agreed to commence the Loxley-1 appraisal well by 30th June 2024. Loxley-1, designed to confirm the commercial viability of the discovery, is planned to be completed as a future production well, one of only two wells required to produce Loxley’s entire estimated material recoverable gas resources (see the Annual Report and Accounts Table 2 and RNS of 20th September 2020). The second production well, designed to maintain the desired plateau gas production rate, must be drilled by summer 2029.

In the event Loxley-1 confirms the discovery’s commercial viability, the Company has also agreed to acquire 10 km ² of 3D seismic over the field by 30th June 2025 and to submit a Field Development Plan for NSTA consent by the end of 2025.
