Highlands Natural Resources - Nitrogen Purity Over 99.59% Returned from Gas Samples in US

Gas Analysis Update for Kansas Nitrogen Project

Highlands, the London-listed natural resources company, is pleased to announce that gas samples collected from the Barret 1-14B Well in Kansas during the company's flow tests on 21 June 2018 indicate initial nitrogen purity levels over 99.59%. The analysis has been conducted by Isotech Labs, a prominent independent laboratory who serves the industry across the United States.

By way of illustration of the importance of this result, nitrogen with 98-99.5% purity is used as a preserving agent by food and beverage producers, meaning that Highlands' output could be immediately used in this industry.

Of further significance is that over time the flow rate of the well has increased to 2,581 Mcfpd (compared to the initial flow test of 1,769 Mcfpd rate).  At these indicative levels of production, with numerous oil and gas fields in neighbouring states, Highlands may soon be in a position to secure much  of its nitrogen supplies for its DT Ultravert needs more economically. For example, during Highlands successful Parent Well Protect test in the Permian Basin 8,762 MCF of nitrogen was purchased for a cost of $79,200 ($9.04 per MCF).  Also, during Highlands successful Parent Well Protect test in the Piceance Basin 12,000 MCF of nitrogen was purchased for a cost of $140,400 ($11.70 per MCF). 

Furthermore, the geographical position of the Company's reserves may also be significant outside of the oil and gas industry as it is situated in the heartland of the US agricultural industry.  By way of example, Highlands estimates that approximately 16 million bushels of corn are grown in the counties surrounding its project.  Commercially produced corn requires approximately 1 lb of nitrogen (in the manufacture of ammonia based fertiliser) per bushel.

Highlands is already engaged in talks with parties across including industrial, oil and gas and agricultural users to explore such opportunities.

Robert Price, Highlands' Chairman and CEO, said: "Now that the purity of our nitrogen has been confirmed, Highlands is advancing  discussions with industrial, oil and gas and agricultural users. This represents a significant, and potentially very valuable addition to our portfolio of projects.  From an initial plan to secure low cost supplies for DT Ultravert, we may have sufficient volumes to explore entry into other industries as well thereby creating a new revenue stream for the Company.”
