IOG & ODE

IOG Company Overview:  

Independent Oil and Gas plc (IOG) is a UKCS development and production focused Oil and Gas Company. IOG owns substantial, low risk, high value gas reserves in the UK Southern North Sea which it owns 100% and operates. IOG also owns 100% of the previously abandoned Thames Pipeline which it is planning to use to export its gas to the UK gas market, the integrity of which has recently been proven through a series of inspections and test activities.

The Company is targeting a 2P peak production rate in excess of 200 MMcfd (c. 35,000 Boe/d) from its substantial current portfolio (2P Reserves of 303 bcf) via an efficient hub strategy.  Alongside this it continues to pursue value accretive acquisitions to generate significant shareholder returns. IOG was recently awarded three new licences in the recent 30th Round; all have known discoveries which could be developed via the above hub strategy.

IOG plans to develop the above reserves by way of a two Phase approach – Phase 1 (FID expected Q4 this year) comprising Southwark, Blythe and Elgood fields tied in via NNM platforms and a subsea well (5 wells in total) to the Thames Pipeline and then onto the Bacton gas plant (major contracts for this phase of work are in the process of being awarded); and Phase 2 comprising NNM platforms at each of Nailsworth and Elland tied back to Southwark (another 5 wells); FID is expected late 2019. The Harvey licence is planned to be drilled early 2019 and if successful could result in a platform development also tied into the Thames Pipeline. The other two licence areas are within potential tie-back range of the Thames pipeline.
