Falcon yesterday held its AGM in Calgary, Canada.

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd (LON:FOG, CVE:FO) gave a brief operational update alongside its AGM results statement, highlighting that work to re-enter the Amungee NW-1H well has begun.

Amungee NW-1H, drilled last year, in Australia’s Beetaloo shale basin, is being re-entered so that can be fracked and tested.

The project operator, Origin Energy, expects production casing and cementing of the well will be completed by the end of June.

After that, a multi-stage fracture stimulation programme will take place by the end of July, which will essentially start a 90 day production testing programme.

Additionally, Falcon highlighted that civil works got underway last month for a new well site, where the Beetaloo W-1 vertical well will be drilled.

Beetaloo W-1 is expected to start in July, once the rig has been released from the Amungee site.

Falcon also noted that all resolutions put forward for the AGM were passed by shareholders.

John Craven, a founding director of the company, has stepped down from the Falcon board.

Craven, in a statement, said: “After many years as a director of Falcon, I now step down from the Board. I believe the company has a strong platform on which to build value across its portfolio. I wish the board and management every success for the future."
