Interim Period Trading Statement

Ahead of the release of the Company’s interim results on 24 April 2023, Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR), the UK Energy Company, is pleased to provide a summary trading update in relation to the six months period ending 31 January 2023 (the “Interim Period”).

• Production for the Interim Period was up by 27% to 46,465 barrels of oil equivalent (“boe”) equating to a rate of 253 boe per day (“boepd”), ahead of full-year guidance of 225-245 boepd (H1 2022: 36,714 boe and 200 boepd)

• Unaudited revenue for the Interim Period was up 46% to £3.725 million (H1 2022: £2.551 million)

• As at 31 January 2023 the Company had cash and cash equivalents of £5.524 million (H1 2022: 2.084 million) and net current assets of £7.334 million (H1 2022: 1.165 million)

The Company is continuing to make good progress across its conventional assets and particularly in relation to the near-term operational objectives set out in the 2022 annual report. Production continues to be strong, particularly from Wressle, where Egdon has also progressed with the gas utilisation and monetisation scheme through the installation of the micro-turbines – which will eliminate routine on site diesel generation - and where work is ongoing on the gas to wire project. The Company is progressing towards submitting planning and permitting for further development at Wressle and finalising a programme of drilling in our exploration and development/redevelopment projects for 2023-24.  Egdon is also making good progress on a potentially material renewable energy, green hydrogen and energy storage project.

Commenting on the trading update, Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, said:

“We continue to generate material revenues from the strong performance of our UK producing assets.  This has led to a strengthening of the balance sheet to support the planned 2023-24 operational programme.

With the business in good health, I look forward to providing shareholders with a more detailed update on the Company’s financial and operational performance on the 24th April.”

Wressle Update - Community Liaison Group Meeting

Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) the UK Energy Company is pleased to provide an update on operations at the Wressle oil field following the Community Liaison Group (“CLG”) meeting held during the evening of 15 March 2023.

At the meeting the following information was shared with members of the CLG:



• The Wressle-1 well has continued to flow oil and associated gas at production rates above forecast expectations made ahead of the successful Proppant Squeeze operation, conducted in August 2021

• Total production from Wressle has now exceeded 390,000 barrels of oil

• No water has been produced to date

• Three microturbines were connected during January and February and are now fully operational

• An extended period of fine tuning and testing of the microturbines to determine the impact on production is currently ongoing

• The Environment Agency continues to monitor Egdon’s production operation through regular visits to the Wressle site, the most recent being on 22 February 2023, with no issues identified by the Regulator

• There have been no accidents or spillages since the start of production on the Wressle site in January 2021

• Groundwater and surface water monitoring has continued and latest results up to end December 2022 have been published on Egdon’s newly revamped community website

Forward Plan

• During the second half of 2022 Egdon reprocessed the 3D seismic data over the field

• The new data has been interpreted and mapped with the objective of identifying reservoir targets for drilling an additional well or wells at the earliest opportunity, subject to receipt of regulatory approval

• The next new well or wells will likely be drilled from the existing Wressle wellsite

• A new Competent Person’s Report has been commissioned incorporating the new field interpretation and production performance data.  This will consider all oil and gas bearing formations at Wressle.

Community Fund

• The Wressle Community Fund has been operating since early 2022

• In August 2022, the operation of the fund was transferred to Broughton Community and Sports Association (BCSA) which runs the fund to meet the needs of local charities and community groups

• Groups which are outside the remit of the BCSA can still apply directly to Egdon for funding from a smaller pot which is retained to meet these needs

• The Wressle partners are making £100,000 a year available to local groups though these two funding pots

• The first of three windows per year for the Wressle Community Grant closed on 31 December 2022 with 12 applications received amounting to £42,029.60

• The Wressle partners provided additional funding of c. £5,500 to allow all eligible applications to be granted.

Completion of Acquisition of Aurora Production (UK) Limited

Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) is pleased to advise that further to the announcement of 20 December 2022 it has completed the acquisition of the entire issued share capital of Aurora Production (UK)Limited (“Aurora Production”) from Aurora Petroleum Limited (the “Vendor”).

Aurora Production is a private company, which holds an 18.75% interest in the Edgon operated licence PL090 which contains the Waddock Cross oil field and an 8.33% interest in the IGas operated licence PEDL070which contains the Avington oil field.

Egdon’s interest in the Waddock Cross oil field (PL090)increases to 73.75% and to 56.04% in the remaining parts of PL090 (excluding the Waddock Cross oil field). Waddock Cross is currently shut-in.  Independent reservoir modelling has shown that a new horizontal well on the field could yield commercial oil production (500-800 bopd). Given the significant mean in-place oil volume of c. 57 million barrels, this asset has been high graded by Egdon for redevelopment.

Egdon has increased its holding in the Avington oil field to 36.33%.  Avington remains shut-in, with work ongoing to redevelop the field during H1 2023.

Egdon estimates that the transaction adds approximately 0.614 million barrels of Best Estimate Contingent and Prospective Resources of oil to its resource inventory.

The consideration for this acquisition is the assumption by Egdon of all ongoing liabilities on these licences, including all abandonment liabilities, from the commercial date of the transaction, which is 30 September2022.

As part of the transaction Egdon has received a cash sum from the Vendor of £0.288 million, less the interim period costs, which reflects the current estimate in relation to the abandonment liabilities. Aurora Production has also granted Net Profit Interests to the Vendor of 10% on each of the licence interests.  In the event that profitable production is established, the Vendor will be reimbursed the £0.288 million.

Aurora Production also has accumulated upstream ringfenced tax losses of ca. £90 million that should be available to offset tax on future profits.

Commenting on the acquisition, Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon said:

“We are pleased to have completed this acquisition, which builds on our existing interests in the Waddock Cross and Avington oil fields. Both assets have active plans in place to rejuvenate oil production.  The acquisition therefore adds potential for near-term incremental production, adds to our resource base and delivers substantial tax losses that may be utilised to offset future taxes.”

PL081 Farmout Option Agreement

Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR), the UK Energy Company, is pleased to advise that it has entered into a Farmout Option Agreement (the “Agreement”) with York Energy (UK) Holdings Limited (“York”) relating to onshore Production Licence PL081 (the “Licence”) in North Yorkshire.

The Licence contains the Weaverthorpe Prospect (“Weaverthorpe”). Weaverthorpe is a relatively shallow Bunter Sandstone (Triassic) prospect located immediately up-dip of interpreted gas pay in the Fordon-2 well (drilled by BP in 1974). Egdon’s initial evaluation indicates an estimated Mean prospective gas resource of 58 billion cubic feet.

Under the terms of the Agreement Egdon has a period of six months from 3 February 2023 to elect to farm into the Licence (the “Option”). During the Option period, Egdon will undertake additional technical and operational work to de-risk the opportunity, including reprocessing of the vintage 2D seismic data and integration of this with the existing 3D seismic data which defines the western part of the prospect.

As consideration for the grant of the Option, Egdon will pay 100% of the 2023 licence fees.

Should Egdon exercise the Option, it will earn a 70% interest in the Licence and assume operatorship. As consideration Egdon will pay 100% of the costs associated with the planning, drilling, logging, and either short term testing and completion or plugging and abandonment of a well to test the Weaverthorpe Prospect.

In addition, on exercise of the Option, Egdon will pay York a cash sum of £100,000, less any licence fees that were paid by Egdon for 2023.

York has an agreement with the current operator, Third Energy UK Gas Limited (“Third”), entitling it to be assigned the entire legal and beneficial interest in PL081. Egdon will pay 100% of the costs associated with the transfer of the Licence from Third to York and to Egdon (Such transfer being subject to NSTA approval.)

Commenting on the Agreement Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon, said:

“This farmout option for the Weaverthorpe Prospect represents a significant opportunity for Egdon to increase its exposure to a potentially material gas resource at a time when the UK’s reliance on imported energy has come into sharp focus.  

The deal structure secures the opportunity at low cost whilst we undertake additional technical due diligence through the application of modern seismic processing technology.  

We look forward to updating shareholders on this exciting opportunity over the coming period.”
