"I am grateful to our new and existing institutional shareholders, as well as other major shareholders, who have participated in these offerings,” said Andrea Cattaneo, Zenith chief executive.

He added: “the company has made significant progress, on both a corporate and operational level, which has created a very strong opportunity for value creation in the event of successful fulfilment of our vast, unchanged potential in the period ahead."

Zenith also provided an operations update including news from the Jafarli field, where preparations to deepen the C-37 are now complete. Equipment is expected to be mobilised to the site “in due course”, it said.

Elsewhere, the C-26 well has undergone cleanout operations as the company assessed the well's suitability for deepening operations – however, it is not due to production casing damage.

The operations team has now moved to the C-30 well where it will perform a similar assessment.

A tender process is underway to secure a contractor for the deepening operations.

Also, Zenith highlighted that a drill rig is now due to be transported to Azerbaijan, ahead of anticipated field operations slated for March.
