· the key planning conditions have been discharged, progress with detailed design tendering and procurement is proceeding as per the plan and all HSE documentation and procedures are progressing as per expectation

2)  Installation of groundwater monitoring boreholes and establishing baseline groundwater quality through monitoring and analysis;

· four groundwater monitoring boreholes have been installed and two rounds of sampling and analysis undertaken to date

3)  Reconfiguration of the site;

Commenting, Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources plc, said:


"We continue to make good progress with the Wressle development,  in line with the expected timeline, despite the challenges of the current operating environment. The commencement of the site reconfiguration works represents an important step in the progress to first oil which will increase Egdon's production by 150 barrels of oil per day. Wressle is economically robust with an estimated project break-even oil price of $17.62 per barrel.  

We maintain our guidance of first oil during H2 2020 and will continue to update stakeholders as works progress ."
