Says testing has already demonstrated an over-pressured regime, providing confidence that the well can replicate or exceed commercial flow rates achieved at the Tanumbirini well. Expects to release 30-day initial production flow rates in the first quarter of 2024, and hopes results from SS1H will support the sanctioning of the JV’s proposed 40 million cubic feet per day pilot project at Shenandoah South.

Revenue decreases 3.2% to £11.0 million from £11.3 million. Net debt totals £3.4 million as of September 30, up from £1.9 million at the same time in 2022. Costs from exceptional items more than triple to £1.1 million. Administrative expenses increase 13% to £6.3 million.

1Spatial PLC - Cambridge-based data management software company - Says it’s ‘delighted’ by the UK government’s recent announcement that the National Underground Asset Register is now available across England, Northern Ireland and Wales. 1Spatial says it was ‘an integral part’ of the development of NUAR, a digital map of underground pipes and cables providing ‘secure, instant access’ to comprehensive location data for such assets. NUAR is expected to increase construction and development efficiency, reduce damage and disruption, and improve workers’ safety. 1Spatial says its industry leading platform was leveraged to ‘seamlessly’ integrate data collected from a wide variety of asset owners. NUAR is expected to become fully operational by 2025.
