“The Honourable Justice Petra Hanna-Weekes has not indicated a date for when any further ruling will be provided,” the company noted in a statement.

Previously, Honourable Justice Petra Hanna-Weekes on December 24 refused an application to apply for Judicial Review of a decision by the Government of The Bahamas in February 2020 to grant BPC environmental authorisation to proceed with the drilling of Perseverance-1.

The exploration well programme kicked off on December 20 and following the December 24 ruling it has since continued.

BPC told investors it will update on the well programme as and when there are any material developments.

Perseverance-1 is expected to take 45-60 days to complete and is targeting P50 prospective oil resources of 0.77bn barrels with an upside of 1.44bn barrels.
