As a result of the merger with FOGL, Rockhopper now has material interests in licences to the South and East of the Falkland Islands.
Through the acquisition of FOGL, Rockhopper acquired a 52% interest in Noble Energy operated acreage to the South and East of the Falkland Islands. Following the results of the Humpback well, Noble and Edison gave notice to withdraw from this acreage (although retain an interest in PL001 in the North Falkland Basin). As a result, during 2017 Rockhopper became operator of the South and East Falkland Basin acreage with a 100% working interest. No outstanding financial or operational commitments exist in relation to the Company’s South and East Falkland Basin interests.
