At the same time, the company is continuing a farm-out process to bring in a partner for its shale project and it has been engaged with what it describes as “high-calibre parties”. The deadline was recently extended for bids which are now targeted by the end of first quarter 2019.

Separately, work continues to evaluate the HRZ shale following the Icewine-2 well.

Subsequently, 88 Energy’s wholly owned subsidiary Regenerate Alaska was named ‘highest bidder’ for an additional 1,920 gross acres and formal award is anticipated in mid-2019.
