Wressle Operations Update

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR, "Egdon") provides an update on progress to first oil at the Wressle Oil Field Development ("Wressle"). Wressle is located in North Lincolnshire Licences PEDL180 and PEDL182 where the Company holds a 30% operated interest.

 

Egdon can report that the workover rig and associated services and equipment were successfully mobilised to site during the week commencing 4 January 2021 and that operations to recomplete and reperforate the well have commenced.  Operations are expected to be completed to enable the Ashover Grit reservoir to be flowed prior to the end of January 2021 as previously advised.

 

The Ashover Grit reservoir is expected to produce at a constrained rate of 500 barrels of oil per day ("bopd") increasing Egdon's production by 150 bopd when fully on stream.
