Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/19/2017, Location: Europe

UK Oil & Gas Investments PLC (UKOG) has raised gross proceeds of £6.5 million through the placing of 12,500,000 new ordinary shares in the Company (New Shares) at 0.8 pence per New Share largely with institutional funds.

The net proceeds of the placing will be used to supplement the Company's existing cash balances and to fund UKOG's near-term growth strategy to further develop its leading position in the Kimmeridge Limestone oil play and five conventional oil and gas discoveries in the Weald.

Further Placing Details

The Company will apply for the admission of the New Shares to trading on AIM and such trading is expected to take place on or around 24 May 2017 (Admission). Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 3,410,134,099 Ordinary Shares with no Ordinary Shares held in treasury. Therefore, the above figure of 3,410,134,099 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in UK Oil & Gas Investments PLC under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Stephen Sanderson, UKOG's Executive Chairman, commented:

"This fundraising, the largest in the Company's history, has illustrated great confidence in our strategy to deliver near-term commercial production from both the new Kimmeridge Limestone play and our interests in five conventional discoveries in the Weald Basin.

The Company can now proceed with confidence to implement the first elements of this strategy, commencing with the drilling and extended well testing of our 100% owned Broadford Bridge-1 Kimmeridge Limestone well.

Broadford Bridge will start our planned 18-month operational journey that could be truly transformational for the company. There are exciting times ahead."
