Wressle Production Update - PEDL180/182

Europa Oil & Gas (Holdings) plc, the AIM quoted UK Ireland and West Africa focused oil and gas exploration, development and production company, is pleased to announce that the Wressle-1 well's gross production is currently averaging 665 barrels of oil per day, as the Operator, Egdon Resources U.K. Limited, continues to evaluate the reservoir response to increased pump rates.

Europa holds a 30% economic interest in PEDL180/182.

Further to the Company's announcement of 11 January 2023, Europa confirms that its free cash flow (pre-capex) for 2023 is expected to be approximately GBP0.8 million and, as at 30 November 2023, the Company's cash position was GBP4.26 million. The lower than forecasted full year free cashflow was primarily due to delayed 2023 Wressle development activities which reduced revenue receipts for the 2023 calendar year but equally resulted in materially lower capital expenditure than originally forecasted. The Company has sufficient funds to cover its forecast capital and operational requirements for 2024.

Will Holland, Chief Executive Officer of Europa, said:

"As we announced at the end of last year, our engineers are closely monitoring the W1 well and are optimising the jet pump rate to maximise oil recovery and value from the well. This remains a dynamic process and we may decide to increase pump rates further as the well performance continues to be assessed."
