At Peregrine, the company struck a farm-out deal in early December. It is a tie-up with a special purpose vehicle, called Alaska Peregrine Development Company (APDC), which will earn 50% of the asset by contributing US$11.5mln to the cost of drilling of the Merlin-1 well.

Permitting and planning is advancing, aiming for a start to a two-well programme as soon as February.

In recent weeks, in the current quarter, the company has expanded its footprint in the nearby area having agreed to acquire the Umiat Oil Field and separately was notified that it will be awarded acreage in an area referred to as “Tract 29”.
