PA Resources AB: Danish Licences extended

Press release published at The Swedish Wire
The Danish Energy Agency has extended by two years Licence 12/06 operated by PA Resources with a 64% working interest and Licence 9/06 (`Gita') in which PA Resources holds a 26.8% working interest. PA Resources has elected to withdraw from Licence 9/95 (`Maja').

The PA Resources-operated Licence 12/06 (64%) which contains the Broder Tuck gas/condensate discovery and Lille John oil discovery resulting from the successful 2011 drilling campaign has now been extended until May 2014. Planning has commenced for a well appraising the Lille John shallow oil discovery, commencing with the award of a drilling management contract.

The Maersk-operated Licences 9/06 (`Gita') and 9/95 (`Maja') (PA Resources 26.8%), have also been extended by two years. In 2009 the Gita 1X-well encountered indications of hydrocarbons in the Middle Jurassic HPHT (high pressure high temperature) secondary target but with low permeability. Subsequent detailed studies have not been able to reduce the risk attached to the produceability of these hydrocarbons. PA Resources will maintain its 26.8% interest in the Gita Licence, where there is no well commitment but a decision regarding drilling must be made by October 2013. Additional subsurface studies will be carried out to further evaluate the prospectivity at Upper Jurassic and shallower Cretaceous and Tertiary levels prior to such a decision.

The 9/95 Licence is being extended with a commitment to drill a deep HPHT well targeting a complex Upper Jurassic gas exploration prospect which PA Resources regards as relatively high risk. As a result, subject to the Danish Energy Agency's approval, PA Resources has elected to withdraw from this Licence. The withdrawal will result in a write-down of approximately SEK 90 million recorded in the results for the second quarter 2012.

- High cost, high risk gas exploration is not part of PA Resource's core strategy. Our primary focus in Denmark is to progress the Lille John oil discovery and Broder Tuck gas/condensate discovery towards development. We see greater shareholder value in our focus on these discoveries and relatively shallow exploration in Licence 12/06 and our adjacent German acreage, says Bo Askvik, President and CEO of PA Resources.
