Amplitude Vs Offset Studies (AVO) Reveal Highly Encouraging Results

Previously, 88E had concluded the review of amplitude vs offset studies (AVO) conducted at the Peregrine project and received highly encouraging results. In addition to this, the potential for observing similar attributes at the Merlin and Harrier prospects at the Project Peregrine are supported by the calibration of the studies to the current Willow oil field.

Interestingly, the signatures observed, especially for Fluid Factor, resemble the ones at the Willow oil field and the Merlin and Harrier prospects.

Project Peregrine Potential

Project Peregrine is located between major oil discoveries at Willow to the North and Umiat to the South with 1.6 billion barrels mean prospective resource across three prospects. Two of the three prospects totalling >1 billion barrels are located on-trend to present recent discoveries and are scheduled for testing through drilling in 2021.

Moreover, 88E’s Harrier and Merlin prospects interpreted to be on-trend with similar seismic signatures to COP’s Harpoon and Willow discoveries, respectively. As a result, 88E is optimistic that the chances of success are relatively high, notwithstanding the mapping on 2D seismic only.

All in all, 88E is driven by the aim to transform into a successful exploration and production company while generating significant benefits to its shareholders.
