  • Successful first UKCS appraisal well, at the Platypus gas field, in August 2012

Tom Cross, Executive Chairman of Parkmead commented:

"I am pleased to report excellent progress in the period to 31 December 2012. Parkmead has significantly increased its reserve base and also added production to the Group's portfolio, providing cash flow from E&P operations from September 2012 onwards. These key achievements have been delivered through the completion of two important acquisitions in the UK and Netherlands. Parkmead was also delighted to be awarded several new licences under the UKCS 27th Licensing Round, covering some 25 blocks across the UKCS. In addition, the Company achieved successful drilling results at its first appraisal well at the Platypus gas field in the UK Southern North Sea, providing a valuable near-term development opportunity.

In December 2012, the Group announced a successful equity placing and debt for equity conversion, which was completed the following month. We were very pleased and encouraged by the support that Parkmead received from a number of high quality institutional investors in the oversubscribed placing. This new financing has put Parkmead in a strong position, with funding in place to drive additional growth."
