"We would like to thank our advisers and shareholders for their continued support as we enter a potentially transformational period for the company, which includes a possible farm-out by year-end followed by the spud of the Winx-1 exploration well in the first quarter of 2019," said Dave Wall, 88 Energy managing director.
