These key achievements have been delivered through the completion of three important acquisitions, securing two oil companies in the UK and a portfolio of gas and oil fields in the Netherlands.

In addition, the Company delivered successful drilling results with its first appraisal well at the Platypus gas field in the UK Southern North Sea, providing a valuable near-term development opportunity.

Parkmead has created a strong platform from which to become a key E&P player in the North Sea, and we look forward to updating shareholders as we continue to grow into 2014 and beyond."
