Falkland Oil and Gas Limited is pleased to announce that the 'Humpback' exploration well was spudded on 13 June 2015.

The well is located on licence PL012 in which FOGL has a 52.5% working interest and will target the Humpback prospect. Humpback is located within a cluster of similar prospects, in the Fitzroy sub-basin, which have a total, combined, prospective resource of over one billion barrels of oil. The well will test multiple stacked reservoirs within the Cretaceous Diomedea fan complex. The Humpback well is located in a water depth of approximately 1,260 metres and is expected to reach a total depth of 5,350 metres.

The well is anticipated to take approximately 65 days to drill. A further release will be issued once logging is completed. FOGL is partially carried through the costs of this well by Noble Energy (Licence Operator) and has a paying interest of 27.5%.

Tim Bushell, CEO, commented:

"The Humpback well is the exciting first test of a new geological play concept within the South and East Falkland basins. In the event of encouraging results, we have identified, on 3D seismic, multiple follow-up prospects."
