Alaska North Slope
Red Emperor has entered into a binding agreement that will see the company participate in the drilling of a highly prospective Nanushuk oil trend exploration well on the Alaska North Slope in early 2019, with an estimated prospective resource volume of 400 MMbbls.
The drill target is immediately adjacent to and a direct analogue of the third party Horseshoe-1/1A oil well. Horseshoe is part of the billion-barrel plus Nanushuk oil play-fairway, one of the largest conventional oil fields discovered in the US in more than 30 years.
Red Emperor’s working interest is 31.5% in the prospect leases with the company fully funded to meet its share of all work commitments associated with the farm-in agreement. Red Emperor has joined a consortium with well-funded and experienced JV partners to execute the drill programme.
