Production

In Ukraine:

- In Q1 2021 the drilling rig has remained on free of charge standby with the drilling of IG149 commencing on the 9th April. IG149 is targeting the Ignativske Devonian in an undeveloped fault block containing the IG111 well. IG111 was successfully deepened to the Devonian in Q1 2021 and found 4.8m of net hydrocarbon bearing reservoir from logs.

- NN76, a PPC owned well in the Novo-Nikolaevske field, was worked over to test the V15 reservoir in March and is currently producing 243 boepd.

- NN75 ST is currently producing 125 boepd following 4m of additional perforations added in the V16 in January.

- Ukraine production of 3,843 boepd in Q1 2021 is 12% lower than Q4 2020 due to no drilling activity taking place in Q1 2021 and the loss of IG142 which produced an average of 321 boepd in Q1 2021 before it stopped producing in the middle of February.

In Russia:

- Acid jobs planned for January were postponed till Q2 2021 due to production being more stable than anticipated.

Liquidity

Our Ukrainian subsidiary held 1.6 million cubic metres of gas and 38.4 thousand barrels of oil inventory available for immediate sale at 31 March 2021. Approximate sales value of gas and oil inventory is calculated using average sales prices for March 2021.

Rental fee claims

Claims issued by the Ukrainian tax authorities for additional rental fees for 2010 and 2015 are still being contested through the Ukrainian court process as explained in the 2020 Annual Report. In April 2021 the Poltava Circuit Administrative Court satisfied demands of Poltava Petroleum Company (PPC) in respect of the case No. 816/1191/16 and left the decision of first instance court in force. Final resolution of the 2010 and remaining 2015 rental fee claims cases is expected during 2021.

International arbitration award

The international arbitration award, directing the State of Ukraine to pay $11.8m plus interest and $0.3m costs to JKX as described in the 2020 Annual Report, was successfully legally recognised in Ukraine and JKX filed for collection. No possible future benefit that may result from this award will be reflected in the accounts until there is further clarity on the process for, and likely success of, enforcing collection.
