88 Energy Ltd (LON:88E,ASX:88E) has told investors that flow testing operations on the Icewine-2 appraisal well are due to start in Alaska next week.

The company noted that this schedule represents a one week delay, caused by fine tuning of the testing procedure.

It also said that additional technical analysis is ongoing and will be communicated to investors when complete.

That first well had laid out a whole new US shale play and, buoyed by this success, 88 Energy moved quickly to significantly expand its footprint in the surrounding area.

Flow testing results will prove pivotal for 88 Energy’s plans to develop the HRZ shale.

In late afternoon trading, 88 Energy shares were 3.9%, or 0.08p higher at 2.02p.
