Rockhopper Exploration (RKH)
Rockhopper Exploration plc ("Rockhopper") is an AIM listed oil and gas exploration company based in the UK with interests in the Falkland Islands. It was established in 2004 with a strategy to invest in and undertake an offshore oil exploration programme. It was floated on AIM in August 2005.
Rockhopper holds 40% interests in production licences PL032 and PL033 and, on completion of a farm-in announced in October 2013, 24% stakes in blocks PL004a, PL004b, and PL004c. All of these blocks are operated by Premier Oil. In addition, it has a 3% interest block PL003, operated by Falkland Oil and Gas.
In August 2014 Rockhopper completed the takeover of Mediterranean Oil & Gas plc ("MOG"). Through the acquisition of MOG, Rockhopper now holds a portfolio of production, development/appraisal and exploration interests in Italy, Malta and France.
