"The company is grateful for the support shown by existing shareholders, despite the recent volatility in the broader market, and the take-up under the offer has exceeded internal projections,” said Dave Wall, the managing director of 88 Energy.

“88 Energy is well positioned given the potential farm-out transaction targeted for completion prior to 2018 year-end, followed by the drilling of the high impact Winx-1 well in 1Q2019," Wall said.

The company also issued a quarterly report today that summarised activities in the third quarter of 2019.

Highlights included the large upgrade to the portfolio at Project Icewine, the execution of definitive agreements for farm-in to the Western Blocks and solid progress in the process of 3D seismic data on the Yukon acreage.
