Webinar & Corporate Update


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. 160,000 acres adjacent and near to transportation and pipeline infrastructure on the Alaska North Slope, is pleased to confirm that an investor presentation ("Webinar") will be held today at 4 pm BST .


Webinar update


A copy of the Powerpoint presentation to be delivered during the Webinar will be uploaded to Pantheon's website at shortly before 4 pm BST today. A recording of the Webinar will also be uploaded to the Company's website once available.


As previously advised, the presentation will, by design, be technical in nature in order to allow investors and industry participants to gain a greater appreciation for the impressive quality of data and analysis underpinning the Company's projects.


Pantheon's executive board will be supported by Mr Mike Smith, President and Founder of AHS, and Mr Roger Young, Chief Technology Officer for eSeis. Also joining the presentation will be Mr Ed Duncan, Senior Geoscience Consultant and Founder of Great Bear, and Mr Jerry Nichols, Senior Geophysicist Consultant.


Over the recent months, the Company has announced resource estimates which exceed over one billion barrels of oil recoverable, net to Pantheon, for the Theta West and Shelf Margin Deltaic ("SMD") horizons, which, in management's opinion, meets the classification of P50 Contingent Resource (Recoverable).

Conceptual Development plans


As part of the analysis of the Alkaid and SMD-B projects, the Company has prepared conceptual development plans for both projects, which will be addressed in the Webinar. As presented in the tables below, these have been modelled at a range of oil prices to highlight the net present value ("NPV") sensitivity to the oil price. Pantheon has a 100% working interest in both projects.

Conceptual development model (pre-tax) for the SMD-B project based upon management estimate. For illustrative purposes only. Assumptions: 400 well development (194 wells at EUR of 1.4 mmbo and 206 wells at 0.7 mmbo for a total of 421 mmbo produced vs 404 mmbo previously modelled), average well cost $23m for three delineation wells and $12m per well thereafter, oil prices held flat, model truncated at year 30.

Conceptual development model (pre-tax) for the Alkaid anomaly project (i.e., excluding SMD), based upon the development model used by Lee Keeling & Associates, adjusted for current cost estimates. For illustrative purposes only. Assumptions: 44 wells drilled (24 wells at EUR of 2.3mmbo and 20 wells at 1.15 mmbo for a total of 78 mmbo produced, vs 76.5mmbo previously modelled), average well cost $23m for three delineation wells and $12m per well thereafter, oil prices held flat, model truncated at year 30.



Corporate Update

As previously announced,   Pantheon must complete a farmout or funding in Q4 2021 to have sufficient resources for both working capital and for the anticipated future winter 2021/22 drilling and testing campaign. The Company continues to proactively manage expenditures and to engage with potential farminees/partners in the meantime.


Pantheon also notes the recent Federal District Court decision that vacated approval of Conoco-Phillips' Willow project, and provides the following observations:


Willow is on Federal land requiring Bureau of Land Management (BLM) approval


Willow is within the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPRA), an environmentally sensitive area governed by a unique regulatory framework

Willow's proposed infrastructure is within the environmentally sensitive Teshepuk Lake Special Area

Pantheon projects are 100% on State of Alaska owned lands and are not subject to the above and require no Federal land management approval


The Company's 2021/22 winter objective is for an active work programme to test all zones of the Talitha #A discovery well, and to drill at least one other well at either Alkaid or Theta West. An Alkaid development well could start production and generate revenues shortly after completion, using a low-cost modular production system, considered to be a highly attractive option at current oil prices. A well at Theta West has the attraction of testing a globally significant play that offers tremendous potential for value creation.


Jay Cheatham, CEO of Pantheon Resources, stated:

"This Webinar will be crucial listening for anyone with an interest in forming a view on our assets and I encourage everyone to take the time to participate and to digest the implications of its contents . It will contain a lot of technical information, however, we believe this is essential to demonstrate the science and the work behind these enormous resource estimates. Mike Smith, President and Founder of AHS, leading expert on VAS has generously agreed to speak during the Webinar and to give his expert views on his analysis. For the avoidance of any doubt, Mike and AHS are truly independent of Pantheon. It is a rare privilege for shareholders to gain access to such experts and we are thankful to both Mike and Roger for the generosity of their time.


"We remain focused on finding a suitable partner to farm in to one or more of our projects and this process is ongoing. We have discussed many times the requirement of a farmout, or otherwise, to fund the Company ahead of a winter 21/22 drilling programme and we have been focused on this goal since April. The oil market is much better right now than any of us could have envisioned, putting the Company in a stronger position during these negotiations.


"Finally, I would like to apologise to everyone who planned for the Webinar yesterday. Due to a technical issue with the webinar provider, we made the difficult decision to delay the broadcasting of the presentation until today. Given the geological nature of the presentation, we felt was imperative enable a far more informative presentation."

Notes to Editors

Pantheon Resources plc   is an AIM listed Oil & Gas company focused on several large projects located on the North Slope of Alaska ("ANS"), onshore USA where it has a 100% working interest in over 160,000 highly prospective acres with potential for multi billion barrels of oil recoverable. A major differentiator to other ANS projects is its close proximity to transport and pipeline infrastructure which offers a significant competitive advantage to Pantheon, allowing for materially lower capital costs and much quicker development times. 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.


The Company has received Independent Expert Reports certifying a Contingent Resource of 76.5MMBO (million barrels of oil) recoverable on its Greater Alkaid project and management have estimated Contingent Resources of 1.4 billion barrels of oil at Theta West and 404 million barrels of oil in the Shelf Margin Deltaic horizon.  


In accordance with the AIM Rules - Note for Mining and Oil & Gas Companies - June 2009, the information contained in this announcement has been reviewed and signed off by Jay Cheatham, a qualified Chemical & Petroleum Engineer, who has over 40 years' relevant experience within the sector.

Contingent Resources - those quantities of petroleum which are estimated, on a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations, but which are not currently considered to be commercially recoverable

EUR - Economic Ultimate Recovery

MMBO - Million Barrels of Oil

$m - million US dollars

P50 - P50 is defined as 50% of estimates exceed the P50 estimate (and by definition, 50% of estimates are less than the P50 estimate). It is considered to be a good middle estimate.
