Theta West Drilling Permit Approval & Update on Forthcoming AGM Webinar


Pantheon Resources plc ("Pantheon" or "the Company"), the AIM-quoted oil and gas company with a 100% working interest in all of its oil projects spanning c. 153,000 acres adjacent and near to transportation and pipeline infrastructure on the Alaska North Slope, is pleased to provide the following update:



Drilling permit approved - Theta West #1


Pantheon is pleased to announce that it has received notification from the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission that the permit required to drill the Theta West #1 well has been approved.


Operations Update


The Nordic Calista #3 rig is on location at the Talitha #A well where it will complete works to prepare the well for testing, prior to being mobilised to the Theta West #1 location for the spudding of that well. Given that Talitha #A is already drilled and cased, a smaller coiled tubing unit will be utilised for testing of that well, once preparation works have been completed with the larger rig. The ice road to Theta West is still under construction, with the approximately one mile still to be fortified and completed. Following this, the pad will be constructed prior to the move of the rig.


Webinar Update


Pantheon confirms that the shareholder presentation and Q&A section of the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") will be held by Webinar on Monday 24 January at 5 pm GMT and will be open for all shareholders as well as other interested parties to attend .


As announced on 7 January 2022, Pantheon will host the formal business component of the AGM and shareholder presentation as separate and individual events, with only the formal business set out in the notice of meeting being considered at the AGM at 11 am on the same day. 


A copy of the presentation to be delivered during the Webinar will be uploaded to Pantheon's website at  shortly before 5 pm on 24 January. A recording of the Webinar will also be uploaded to the Company's website once available.

In light of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and with a view to taking appropriate measures to safeguard its Shareholders' health and make the Annual General Meeting as safe and efficient as possible, Shareholders may not be able to attend the meeting in person.

Notes to Editors

Pantheon Resources plc is an AIM listed Oil & Gas company with 100% working interests in several large projects located on the North Slope of Alaska ("ANS"), onshore USA spanning 153,000 acres, most of which is covered by 3D seismic.. A major differentiator to other ANS projects is its close proximity to transport and pipeline infrastructure. The Group's stated objective is to create material value for its stakeholders through oil exploration, appraisal and development activities in high impact, highly prospective conventional assets, in the USA; a highly established region for energy production with infrastructure, skilled personnel and low sovereign risk. All operations are onshore USA, with drilling costs materially below that of offshore wells.
