It would potentially tee up an ‘exploration/appraisal’ well next year, the company told investors.

In the meantime, the company also intends to advance its shale portfolio. It noted that evaluation work continued in the past quarter, following the two prior HRZ shale wells, and, it is planning to launch a separate farm-out process during the current year.

88 Energy also provided a debrief of the Winx exploration well which failed to find commercial hydrocarbons, though it was completed on time, without incident, and slightly under budget.

It noted that the processing of 3D seismic data for the Yukon project area is now complete, and currently a resource estimation process is underway.
