Fourth Quarter 2023 Production and Operations Update

   --    Production for the Quarter was 7.35 mm therms 
   --    Estimated revenues of GBP7.2m for the Quarter 

Gas volumes produced and sold from the Saltfleetby Field equalled 7.35 mm therms in aggregate for the months of October, November and December 2023 combined, compared to 7.9 mm therms produced and sold in the third quarter. Fourth quarter production equates to an average of 2.45 mm therms per month (2.6 mm therms per month in the third quarter), as against hedged volumes of 1.5 mm therms per month for the third and fourth quarter. Operational efficiency was 87% for the fourth quarter (90% operational efficiency for the third quarter). Gas condensate (liquid) production averaged 130 bbl/day.

The quarter included a planned shutdown for 6 days during October for maintenance and remedial work on one of the two compressor engines on the Saltfleetby site. The compressor was returned to service on the 21(st) of October, allowing dual compressor operations to recommence.

The construction of the B07T permanent flowline was completed during the quarter with commissioning of the new flowline completing on the 3(rd) of November. B07T production losses were minimized to one day for completion of the tie-in work and for flowline commissioning activities.

A further planned intervention on one of the two compressor engines took place during November with the work successfully completed on the 22(nd) of November, allowing dual compressor operations to recommence.

Equipment hardware upgrades were implemented on one of the two compressor engines during December with the aim of improving engine reliability performance. Work was carried out across a small number of planned interventions prior to the festive period.

Well performance and well optimization trials were carried out during the quarter further to commissioning of the B07T permanent flowline and this work remains an ongoing focus for the sub-surface and operations team.

END.

Explanation of Terminology:

scm (standard cubic metre) mscm (thousand standard cubic metre) and mmscf (million standard cubic feet) are traditional measures of volumes of gas. As producers we tend to observe volume flow from wells and through process plant but we are paid on the energy content which is metered and analysed at point of sale. Mmscfd represents mmscfd per day.

These two types of measurement, energy and volume, are related by the calorific or higher heating value which is the number of MJ per standard cubic metre. Very intense processing, i.e. lower temperatures, will tend to remove more higher hydrocarbon fractions such as propane, butane and pentane, which will lower the calorific value but improve the margin of safety in terms of meeting transmission grid specification.

55,000 Therms, given a calorific value of about 41MJ per standard cubic metres is approximately equal to 5mmscf or 141,584 scm, 1,612,486 kwhrs, 5,804,948 MJ. Note that "mm" in respect of therms or scf means million. Confusingly, in the case of Joules, different nomenclature is used and "MJ" is an abbreviation for megajoules which is equivalent to millions of joules.
