United Kingdom at a Glance

 

On 10 March 2016, Hibiscus Petroleum acquired our very first producing asset – a package of geographically focused producing fields and associated infrastructure located in the North Sea, United Kingdom (UK), collectively known as the Anasuria Cluster (Anasuria). Anasuria delivers production that generates positive cashflow with infield future development opportunities and exploration upside. The addition of the Teal West discovery, an award to Hibiscus Petroleum as part of the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) 32nd Licensing Round is a positive development and is expected to contribute to an increase in Anasuria’s production by 2024.

The addition of the Teal West discovery, an award to Hibiscus Petroleum as part of the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) 32nd Licensing Round is a positive development and is expected to contribute to an increase in Anasuria’s production by CY2025. We also farmed-in to the Fyne development in November 2023 and plan to develop it via the Anasuria FPSO.

Expanding our footprint in the North Sea, Hibiscus Petroleum acquired the discovered Marigold West and Sunflower oilfields on 16 October 2018. This shallow-water development asset will deliver a step change to our production volumes and revenue generating capacity by CY2025.

Additionally, in line with our efforts to aggregate 2C oil resources at a competitive unit cost per barrel (as part of an area-wide development), we applied for (and were awarded), the Kildrummy discovery (as part of the UKCS 32nd Licensing Round). Kildrummy lies in close proximity to the Marigold West and Sunflower fields.
