Mosman Oil and Gas grows production despite severe weather delays

Mosman Oil and Gas Limited (AIM: MSMN) the oil exploration, development and production company, provides the following production information for the six months from 1 July 2018 to 31 December 2018.


Production Summary


Net Production attributable to Mosman increased 47% in this period, compared to the prior six months. The one new well is Stanley-1, which continues to produce mainly gas with some oil.


The weather has resulted in lower production than expected, mainly due to wet road conditions affecting access to well sites. For example, production at Welch was limited by some wells not producing due to broken rods (which is a routine workover); and the drilling of Stanley-2 has been delayed as the road needs to be in dry condition for the heavy rig loads. Once the roads dry out, the workovers at Welch and drilling of Stanley-2 can proceed. Both of these activities are expected to further increase production.


Production (6 months ended 31 December 2018)


Total Gross Production was 18,253 boe an increase of 48.9% (12,260 six months to 30 June 2018).


Net Production attributable to Mosman was 6,476 boe an increase of 46.6% (4,417 six months ended 30 June 2018).


Net Sales attributable to Mosman were AUD$614,120 an increase of 14.9% (AUD$534,500 six months ended 30 June 2018).
