TOTAL exercises option to farm-in to 35% of Druid/Drombeg/Diablo 


3 January 2018


SOSINA is pleased to inform that TOTAL E&P Ireland B.V. ("TOTAL"), a wholly owned subsidiary of TOTAL S.A., has selected to exercise its option to farm-in for a 35% interest and operatorship in FEL 2/14. This leaves SOSINA with a 7% interest in FEL 2/14. The farm-in and the operatorship is subject to the approval of the Minister of State at the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment.

The other partners after the farm-in are Providence Resources (28%) and the subsidiary of Cairn Energy Capricorn (30%). In June 2017, TOTAL paid SOSINA 4.05 MUSD for the option to farm-in and to elect to farm-in TOTAL will pay SOSINA additional 1.35 MUSD. This totals an amount of 5.40 MUSD.

Drilling in the summer of 2017 of the well 53/6-1 struck water-bearing reservoirs in both the Drombeg and the Druid prospects. Well data is, however, still being analysed to determine possible further prospectivity in the licence, including the underlying pre-Cretaceous Diablo prospect.

Chairman of the Board
