  • Gross profit increased to $0.8 million (H1 2017: $0.3 million gross loss)
  • EBITDA of $1.4 million (H1 2017: $0.8 million loss) stated before net exceptional costs of $3.6 million (H1 2017: $1.6 million exceptional gain)

  • Group cash balance as at 30 June 2018 of $6.2 million (31 December 2017: $1.8 million)

Operational highlights

  • Appointment of new executive management team in June 2018
  • Bought out minority interest to take 100% control and benefit of Canadian asset ownership in January 2018
  • Crude sales increased to an average of 767 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) for the Period (H1 2017: 233 bopd)
  • Production rates for the 6 new horizontal well portfolio consistent with expected performance 

Post-Period highlights

  • Strategic, operational and financial review conducted by new executive management team
  • Farm-out negotiations commenced over Adriatic and Sicily Channel prospects 

Scott Aitken, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “When I joined the Group in June I made it a priority to significantly improve the financial planning, reporting and controls processes in order to improve cost control and shareholder returns.

We are encouraged by the record positive cashflow from our Canadian operations despite the net loss for the Period after $3.6 million of non-recurring items. We anticipate continued predictable production and cashflow growth from the Company's 100% owned and operated Canadian land position, where there is significant potential for incremental production increases at a low operating cost.

The potential for future shareholder returns is further amplified through creating three high-impact exploration events from the Company's licence position in Italy, where we have already secured drilling funding from Shell for one well and are in negotiations to fund drilling of two additional prospects.

The focus for the remainder of the year is to conclude the operational and financial capacity planning and execution to extract the optimum value from our portfolio.”
