Cash from the fundraising is earmarked for 88 Energy’s share of drilling costs for the Winx-1 well, ongoing lease rent payments, continuing geologic evaluation, debt interest payments and ongoing working capital.

Some 555.55mln new shares were sold to investors priced at 1p per share.

"We would like to thank our advisers and shareholders for their continued support as we enter a potentially transformational period for the company, which includes a possible farm-out by year-end followed by the spud of the Winx-1 exploration well in the first quarter of 2019," said Dave Wall, 88 Energy managing director.
