Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources, commented:

“Egdon continues to generate strong revenues from its UK producing assets with Wressle being the standout asset, performing ahead of expectations. We anticipate a further uplift in production at Wressle in the near future once the microturbines are fully commissioned and operational. We are actively progressing planning and permitting for the development of the Penistone Flags reservoir, which along with the associated gas to grid project will result in a further material uplift in production and revenues.

Elsewhere, we are progressing our plans for a drilling campaign during the next 12 to 24 months designed to further increase our production and revenue and funded from the material cash flow being generated from our existing production.”
