Competent Person's Report on the Resolution Gas Discovery

Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) is pleased to announce the results of a Competent Person's Report ("CPR") prepared by Schlumberger Oilfield UK PLC ("Competent Person") in relation to the Resolution gas discovery of which Egdon is operator and holds a 100.00% interest in Licence P1929. Schlumberger has made independent estimates of Contingent Gas Resources that can be attributed to the Zechstein reservoir in the 1966 gas discovery made by Total in well 41/18-2 (UK).

Schlumberger's gross Gas Initially In Place (GIIP) and Contingent Gas Resources estimates are summarised in the following tables:

Reservoir Interval

Gas Initially In Place (GIIP)

P90 (Bcf)

P50 (Bcf)

P10 (Bcf)

Mean (Bcf)

Zechstein Roker Dolomite





Zechstein Concretionary Limestone





Zechstein Cadeby Limestone





Consolidated Total






Table 1: Estimated Gas Initially In Place for the Resolution Discovery (100% Egdon), Southern North Sea. NB the Consolidated Total volumes for the P90, P50 and P10 Cases represent the probabilistic summation of the GIIP. Whereas the Consolidated Total volume for the Mean Case is a simple arithmetic summation of the GIIP.

Reservoir Interval

Contingent Resources

1C (Bcf)

2C (Bcf)

3C (Bcf)

Mean (Bcf)

Zechstein Roker Dolomite





Zechstein Concretionary Limestone





Zechstein Cadeby Limestone





Consolidated Total

Whereas the Consolidated Total volume for the Mean Case is a simple arithmetic summation of the Contingent Resources.



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

"This independent evaluation of the Resolution gas discovery conducted by Schlumberger has validated the material resource potential of the asset of which Egdon currently holds 100%. It should be noted that the substantial (multi-Trillion cubic feet (TCF)) additional gas potential in the underlying Carboniferous sandstones have not been included in this assessment.  Following discussions with the OGA, we hope for the grant of an extension to the licence to enable the acquisition of a 3D seismic survey in September/October 2019. We now look forward to progressing our discussions with potential industry partners with a view to funding the planned acquisition of the 3D seismic programme over the Resolution Discovery and the adjacent Endeavour Discovery in neighbouring Licence P2304 (100% Egdon)."

Schlumberger's Letter to Egdon's Board of Directors summarising the findings of the CPR has been published on the Company's website (
