Ascent Resources Operational Update

Posted by OilVoice Press - OilVoice



The Board of Ascent is pleased to confirm that there has been significant progress with respect to our long-awaited permits. Based on the last document received from the Environmental Agency we have good reason to be confident that the IPPC permit will be confirmed in the coming weeks.


Due to the planned three-week shut down for annual maintenance of INA's gas processing plant in September, our wells were only in production for 7 days. Production figures for September have not been finalised due to the proximity to month end; estimated total production for the month of September is approximately 229,252 cubic metres (8,096 MCF) at an average daily rate of 32,750 cubic metres / 1.2 MMscfd.  Production in August was 727,851 cubic metres (25,679 MCF), an average daily production of 23,456 cubic metres (1.0 MMscfd).

Total revenue to Ascent for September from gas sales is expected to be around €65,000, with an additional €2,500 expected from the sale of condensate.

Strategic review

The Company continues to have positive discussions with more than one interested party and is hopeful that either could result in a proposal which shareholders would find acceptable.  We understand that the length of the process has been frustrating for all involved but there are complex discussions underway and we look forward to providing a detailed update when circumstances allow.

Colin Hutchinson, CEO of Ascent Resources plc, commented:

"I am greatly encouraged by the progress made during September and believe that we are now very close to having the IPPC permit confirmed in the next few weeks."
