88 Energy Ltd (LON:88E) has expanded its footprint on Alaska’s North Slope, securing additional areas of interest for the group’s planned conventional exploration campaign.

In total it has added 45,239 net acres, increasing the explorer’s overall position to 371,478 acres.

The increase comes via two separate agreements. First, the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) releasing rights to 28,453 acres, contiguous with the company’s Western Fairway area of the current Project Icewine acreage.

In a separate agreement, the company will acquire a 69.1% interest in 24,269 acres (16,786 acres net to 88 Energy’s Accumulate subsidiary) adjacent to, and north of, the Central Play Fairway at Project Icewine. It will pay US$206,388 to acquire the position.

"The agreement with ASRC in relation to the western leases is significant as they are partly covered by several prospects that are in our current conventional farm-out package,” said Dave Wall, 88 Energy management director.

“We would like to thank ASRC for the opportunity to partner with them in this area.

“Additionally, the Central Fairway acquisition has delivered additional acres close to the road and pipeline that are considered prospective for both the HRZ and conventional plays."
