Block Energy plc's Chief Executive Officer, Paul Haywood, said:
"2023 stands out as a pivotal year for our Company. Bolstered by solid production, a focus on costs and a supportive oil price environment, we have seen a strong improvement in our financial position. We were also able to focus on advancing our high impact projects, in particular Project III, and the generation and independent verification of a carbon capture storage ("CCS") project.

As we look forward, we're excited about the Company's prospects. The farmout of Project III is already underway and we're seeing continued momentum in developing Projects II and IV, supported by production and cashflows from Project I and disciplined capital management. The Company remains cashflow positive and financially stable at current oil prices and production levels, and I look forward to continuing to deliver on our objectives throughout 2024".
