88 Energy Highlights for the First Half of 2018

During the period, the Group has continued its principal activities in Alaska. A summary of significant activities is below:

Highlights for the first half of 2018:

Project Icewine

Icewine#2 HRZ Shale Flow Test;

o Flow testing re-commenced at the Icewine#2 well, located on the North Slope of Alaska, on June 11 to determine the productivity of the unconventional HRZ shale, utilising a velocity string and artificial lift;
o During the period June 12 to June 30 flowback comprised; Gaseous hydrocarbons ranging from C1 to trace C6, predominantly 90% methane, averaging 26mcf/day since June 12; and 1,372 barrels of recovered fluid interpretedas 100% stimulation fluid.
o Flowback fluids are not considered representative of the reservoir fluid in situ;
o Given the low assisted flowback rate, and that in total only 24.8% of the stimulation fluid injected has been lifted during the entire 2017/2018 flowback operation, the Joint Venture decided on June 30 to suspend the Icewine#2 well; and
o The Joint Venture believes that the flowback data, combined with results to date from core and logs, demonstrates that the HRZ is comparable to other early-stage commercial unconventional plays.
