Energean Oil and Gas, the independent oil and gas exploration and production company focused on the Eastern Mediterranean, has announced its half-year results for the half year ended 30 June 2018.

Mathios Rigas, Chief Executive, Energean Oil & Gas commented:

'During the period we made substantial progress in de-risking our flagship Karish and Tanin development project. We signed a lump-sum, turnkey EPCIC contract with TechnipFMC, simplifying project management and reducing our financial risk exposure, and secured $12 billion of future revenue by signing 12 firm Gas Sales Agreements to deliver a total of 4.2 bcm/yr. Over the next 18 months we aim to prove up sufficient resource to fill the 3.8 bcm/yr of spare capacity in our Karish FPSO, delivering significant incremental value to our stakeholders. Our independent reserves auditor has identified 7.5 Tcf of Israeli prospective resource with a high geological probability of success, which gives us confidence that we can meet this target whilst adhering to our exploration strategy to target resource that can be quickly and economically monetised. We look forward to the results from the Karish North exploration well in 2Q 2019.'
