88 Energy Ltd’s (LON:88E) well programme may be on winter layover, but, that doesn’t mean the group’s interest in its Alaskan shale project has cooled – today, the oil and gas junior confirmed it is expanding its footprint.

Named as the high bidder for two parcels of land, spanning a combined 32,800 gross acres, the explorer’s base has increased in Alaska’s North Slope region. It already formally holds some 271,000 contiguous acres, and more (some 420,000) was deemed as ‘subject to award’.

“This result is a continuance of our acreage expansion plan on the North Slope and the Company is very pleased to be announced high bidder at the recent lease sale,” said Dave Wall, 88 Energy managing director.

“Additional details in relation to both parcels will be announced in due course.”
