Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/6/2019, Location: North America

88 Energy has advised the following in relation to its oil and gas operations on the North Slope of Alaska. Construction of the ~11 mile ice road to the Winx-1 exploration well location commenced on the 2nd January 2019, as planned. The ice road will take approx. three weeks to complete, ahead of construction of the ice pad upon which Nordic Rig-3 will be located for the drilling of Winx-1.

The Permit to Drill for Winx-1 was submitted to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (AOGCC) on schedule, prior to the end of calendar year 2018. All logistics and permitting remains on schedule for a mid-late February spud date. Additional details related to the drilling and testing program will be released in due course.

Winx-1 is located ~4 miles east of the Horseshoe-1/1A well that significantly extended the highly successful Nanushuk play fairway to the south. Winx-1 will target gross best estimate prospective resource of 400 million barrels of oil (144 million barrels net to 88E) across multiple stacked objectives, including the Nanushuk, which is the primary target of the well.

Commenting on the operations update, Dave Wall, Managing Director of 88 Energy, stated: 'Commencement of drilling at the highly anticipated Winx-1 exploration well is now as little as six weeks away, with everything proceeding to plan. Winx-1 aims to further extend the Nanushuk play fairway, only 4 miles east of the recently successful Horseshoe well where similar seismic amplitude response was observed.'
