EGDON RESOURCES PLC

("Egdon" or "the Group" or "the Company")

Interim Results for the Six Months Ended 31 January 2019

Egdon Resources plc (AIM: EDR), a UK-based exploration and production company primarily focused on the hydrocarbon-producing basins of onshore UK, today announces its unaudited results for the six months ended 31 January 2019 ("the Period").

Overview and Highlights

Operational and Corporate

· Production for the Period increased by 67% to 30,026 barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") (164 barrels of oil equivalent per day "boepd") (H1 2018: 17,962 boe; 98 boepd)

· Production restarted from the Ceres well during October 2018 following installation of a new gas flow meter

· Commencement of drilling operations at Biscathorpe-2 (Egdon 38.5%) and Springs Road-1 (Egdon 14.5% carried interest) during January 2019

· Extension of current planning consent at Wressle to 24 January 2020 following successful planning appeal

· Submission of planning appeal for the revised Wressle development following refusal of planning consent on 28 November 2018

Financial Performance

· Oil and gas revenues during the period increased by 88% to £1.21 million (H1 2018: £0.64 million)

· Loss for the period of £0.72 million (H1 2018: loss of £0.85 million)

· Cash and cash equivalents of £1.78 million (H1 2018: £4.10 million)

· Net current assets as at 31 January 2019 of £2.35 million (H1 2018: £5.08 million)

· The Company has no debt (H1 2018: Nil)

Post-Period Events

· Average production January-March 2019 of 240 boepd (January-March 2018: 79 boepd)

· Completion of drilling of Springs Road-1 (Egdon 14.5%) during March 2019 - The well encountered all three pre-drill targets with a reported hydrocarbon bearing shale sequence of over 250 metres in the Bowland Shale and significant gas indications within the Millstone Grit sequence, deeper parts of the lower Bowland Shale and the Arundian Shale

· Biscathorpe-2 drilling operations completed during February 2019 - The primary target was poorly developed and the well has been suspended for a potential future sidetrack

· Competent Person's Report published for Resolution indicating Mean contingent resources volume of 231 bcf

Commenting on the results, Philip Stephens, Chairman of Egdon said;

"I am pleased to report on a period in which Egdon has delivered an increase in production and revenues driven by the resumption of production from the Ceres gas field. It has been an operationally active period with the drilling of the Biscathorpe-2 exploration well and the successful play opening well at Springs Road-1 in the Gainsborough Trough. We have also continued to address the challenges of the operating environment with our Wressle development where we have appealed the refusal of planning consent for our revised proposal and remain confident of a positive outcome.

We look forward to continued strong production and increased revenues and cash flow during the coming period. We eagerly anticipate the results from the detailed analysis of Springs Road-1 given our extensive acreage position and strategic focus on the Gainsborough Trough.

The Period has seen significant operational activity within the UK unconventional sector and, whilst challenges remain, the industry has begun to demonstrate the technical and commercial viability of UK shale gas, whilst simultaneously proving its ability to operate safely and responsibly."

Chairman's Statement

I can report on a period of increased production and operational activity that has seen the Company progress a number of strategic objectives.

Highlights have included:

Ceres (Egdon 10%): Production recommenced from the Ceres well in late October 2018 following installation of a new flow meter. Egdon's net gas sales from Ceres for the period from November 2018 to January 2019 averaged £234,000 per month. Egdon's average monthly production during the period January to March 2019 was 240 boepd, (January to March 2018: 79 boepd) demonstrating the continuing impact of the increased Ceres gas flow.

Springs Road-1 (Egdon 14.5%): The Springs Road-1 well reached a total depth of 3,500 metres post period-end in late March 2019 after encountering all three pre-drill targets - the Bowland Shale, the Millstone Grit and the Arundian Shales. A hydrocarbon bearing shale sequence of over 250 metres was encountered within the upper and lower Bowland Shale and in addition, significant gas indications were observed within the Millstone Grit sequence, deeper parts of the lower Bowland Shale and the Arundian Shale. Drilling operations showed improved rates of penetration leading to better than anticipated drilling performance and lower costs. The cores and wireline log data will now undergo detailed analysis, the first results of which should be available in the second quarter of 2019 and which will give us further insight into the resource potential of the Gainsborough Trough where Egdon holds interests in 82,000 net acres.

The positive initial results from Springs Road-1 along with the highly encouraging preliminary gas concentrations that have been reported from the Millstone Grit sequence in the Tinker Lane-1 well, begin to validate Egdon's strategic focus on the Gainsborough Trough.

Biscathorpe-2 (Egdon 38.5%): As reported on 20 February 2019, Biscathorpe-2 showed that the Basal Westphalian Sandstone target was encountered high to prognosis and was poorly developed or absent at the Biscathorpe-2 location. The Biscathorpe "play" has therefore not been properly tested by the well and potential remains elsewhere on the prospect.

The open-hole section has now been sealed with cement plugs and the well suspended to retain the option for a potential future side-track which would require additional consents including planning permission. This will be considered once the new well data is integrated into an updated subsurface model informed by reprocessing of the existing 3D seismic data.

Resolution Gas Discovery (P1929) (Egdon 100%): We have published (9 April 2019) the results of a Competent Person's Report (CPR) by Schlumberger on the Resolution gas discovery. Schlumberger's Letter to Egdon's Board of Directors summarising the findings of the CPR has been published on the Company's website (www.egdon-resources.com) and states;

· Mid-case (2C) Unrisked Gas Initially In Place (GIIP) of 438 billion standard cubic feet (bcf) in the Resolution Discovery

· Mid-case (2C) Contingent resources of 206 billion standard cubic feet (bcf) in the Resolution Prospect

· Mean Contingent resources of 231 billion standard cubic feet (bcf)

Although this work indicates a smaller Mean resource volume than Egdon's internal assessment (Mean Contingent Resources of 337 bcf) it represents the first independent confirmation of the potentially material economic gas volumes in this gas discovery. The substantial (multi-Trillion cubic feet (TCF)) additional gas potential in the underlying Carboniferous sandstones have not been included in this assessment. Following discussions with the OGA we hope for the grant of an extension to the licence to enable the acquisition of a 3D survey in September/October 2019 and continue the process of introducing a funding partner for this next phase of work.

Wressle Oil Field Development (Egdon 30%): Our revised development proposals for Wressle were refused planning consent in November 2018 despite having a recommendation for approval supported by an independent third-party report for the council (North Lincolnshire). On 1 February 2019, we submitted to the Planning Inspectorate an appeal against this refusal of consent for the development of the Wressle oil field. We look forward to confirmation of the dates for the inquiry where our appeal will be led by a QC.

On a positive note on 24 January 2019, we were advised that the Planning Inspector had upheld our appeal to extend the existing planning consent for the Wressle site until 24 January 2020. This provides the required time for the appeal of the development refusal to be concluded.

Financial and Statutory Information

Gross production during the Period was up 67% to 30,026 barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") (H1 2018: 17,962 boe). Revenue from oil and gas production during the Period was up 88% to £1.21 million (H1 2018: £0.64 million).

The Group recorded a loss of £0.72 million for the Period, (H1 2018: loss of £0.85 million).

The Group has maintained a focus on managing cash resources and at the end of the Period had net current assets of £2.35 million (2018: £5.08 million) of which £1.78 million was cash (2018: £4.10 million). Importantly, the Group remains debt free.

The loss per share for the period was 0.28p (H1 2018: loss of 0.33p).

Strategy

Our strategy remains broadly the same with three key near-term objectives; a continued focus on maximising production rates, revenues and profitability from existing producing assets, looking to add additional reserves and revenues through an active drilling programme and a focus on Northern England unconventional resources. It is in this final strand that our near-term objective has moved from growing our exposure to these opportunities to one of consolidation and value growth through exploration and appraisal, with the recent Springs Road-1 well being an example of the strategy in action.

Operations

Egdon holds interests in 44 licences in the UK with exposure to the full cycle of opportunities from exploration through to development and production. Our website (www.egdon-resources.com) provides further details of all our assets and operations.

Production and Development

Average net production during the period increased by 67% to 164 boepd (H1 2018: 98 boepd) from Ceres, Keddington and Fiskerton Airfield. This is in line with our guidance of 150-180 boepd.

Allowing for the Ceres July maintenance shut-down, our updated production guidance for the financial year ending 31 July 2019 is 170-180 boepd.

We continue to undertake detailed technical evaluation work to inform our plans for further development drilling at Keddington and Waddock Cross and are also looking at innovative ways of restarting production elsewhere within our portfolio (e.g. Dukes Wood, Kirklington and Kirkleatham).

UK Unconventional Resources

Egdon tripled its unconventional resources acreage position in Northern England during the period 2014 to 2017 to c. 186,600 net acres (755 km2). The Company holds material interests in a number of key prospective geological basins including our primary focus, the Gainsborough Trough in the East Midlands, and has reported an independently assessed mean volume of undiscovered GIIP across the portfolio of 50.9 TCF.

In 2018 we paused from further acreage growth and have concentrated on high-grading these assets, improving our technical understanding and increasing acreage value and marketability. The highly encouraging initial results from Springs Road-1 are an important and encouraging first step in this process. The analysis of the core and log data will facilitate the high grading of several potential shale and tight sand targets for the planned horizontal Springs Road-2 well.

Further encouragement for the Gainsborough Trough was provided by IGas from its Tinker Lane well drilled on the edge of the basin in late 2018. Preliminary tests of gas content on samples from the Millstone Grit sequence shales are very positive and auger well for this sequence which was also encountered in Springs Road.

Elsewhere within the sector Cuadrilla Resources reported in February 2019 the initial results from testing of the fracked horizontal Preston New Road-1 well. This represents the first gas production from a UK shale-gas well and although hydraulic fracturing operations were restricted by the micro-seismicity breaching the traffic light system threshold, with most stages not pumped as planned, test results indicate that a 2.5km long producing horizontal shale gas well, with all of its stages fractured as planned, would have potential initial flow rates of between 3 million and 8 million standard cubic feet per day.

Based upon this and other analogue data, UKOOG has recently updated forecasts for UK shale gas development first published by the Institute of Directors (IoD) in 2013. This report highlighted the economic impact of a UK shale-gas industry with potential for just 60 operational sites to reduce import dependency by 50%, a balance of payments benefit of around £8 billion a year, £1.8 billion in community and local council benefits by 2035 and with each site at peak production providing gas for around a half a million homes.

Whilst renewable sources of energy provide a growing share of our electricity, gas still accounts for nearly half including most of the back-up power for when renewables are not producing. Gas is used to heat more than 80% of the UK's households and for cooking in more than 60% of the UK's homes. We currently import 50% of our gas needs at a significant financial cost to the UK economy - over £13 million a day - and that figure is set to grow to almost 80% by 2035.

Conventional Resources Exploration and Appraisal

Our existing conventional resources portfolio provides potential for growth via exploration and appraisal drilling and we continue to work across the portfolio to high grade and progress the best opportunities. As ever, the pace of our exploration drilling activity is in part dependent upon successful farm-outs as we carefully look to balance our financial exposure and technical risk.

Dependent upon securing a further farm-out, we hope to drill the North Kelsey Prospect (PEDL241 - Egdon 80%) in the next 12 months and look forward to the new operator of the Holmwood Prospect (PEDL241 - Egdon 18.5%), UK Oil & Gas Investments plc, progressing plans for the licence.

Community Engagement

We will shortly launch a new community facing website www.egdon-community.com. The website will provide a portal for detailed local information and answers to frequently asked questions about our operations. In due course it will also provide details of Egdon's Community Fund, which will enable the communities where we operate to benefit financially from our operations.

Outlook

Our production guidance for the full financial year 2018-19 is 170-180 boepd driven by continued strong production from Ceres.

Our main operational focus during the coming period will be on:

· Finalising the Springs Road-1 core and log analysis during Q2 2019 to facilitate the planned horizontal Springs Road-2 well

· Finalising the introduction of an industry partner to fund the planned 3D seismic and appraisal drilling on the Resolution Gas Discovery.

· Securing consent for the Wressle development via a planning inquiry anticipated during Q3 2019 with a decision possible late in Q4 2019

The fundamentals of the business remain robust with the Company debt free and holding a range of high potential assets in the UK, a location and jurisdiction which remains commercially attractive, despite some regulatory and planning challenges.

1. General information

Egdon Resources plc ('the Company' and ultimate parent of the Group) is a public limited company listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange plc (AIM) and incorporated in England. The registered office is The Wheat House, 98 High Street, Odiham, Hampshire, RG29 1LP.

This interim report was authorised for issue by the Directors on the 8 April 2019.

Basis of preparation

The financial information set out in this interim report has been prepared using accounting policies consistent with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted for use in the European Union. IFRS is subject to amendment and interpretation by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the IFRS Interpretations Committee and there is an ongoing process of review and endorsement by the European Union. The financial information has been prepared on the basis of IFRS that the Directors expect to be adopted by the European Union and applicable as at 31 July 2019.

Adoption of new and revised standards

New standards, interpretations and amendments effective from 1 January 2018

New standards impacting the Group that have been adopted in the interim financial statements for the six months ended 31 January 2019 are as follows:

• IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (IFRS 9); and

• IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (IFRS 15)

None of the standards, interpretations and amendments effective for the first time from 1 January 2018 have had a material effect on the financial statements as discussed below:

IFRS 9

The most significant implication of this standard for the Group is that it requires entities to use an expected credit loss model for impairment of financial assets instead of an incurred credit loss model. The Group has historically seen a low level of non-recovery of debts, and routinely provides against amounts which are thought to be at risk of non-recovery. In addition, the debtors are short term in nature with typical terms of 30 days from delivery. As a result, the implementation of the expected credit loss model has had no material impact on the Group's results and no prior year balances have been restated.

The Group does not have any derivative financial instruments measured at fair value and therefore, the IFRS 9 amendment for hedging instruments has had no material impact on the Group's results and no prior year balances have been restated.

Financial assets that were previously classified as 'loans and receivables' are now classified as 'at amortised cost' with no significant change in their recognition and measurement.

IFRS 15

The Group earns its revenues from the sale of extracted oil and gas and revenue is typically recognised at the point at which the goods are delivered to the customer. Revenues do not, therefore, arise from long-term contracts. The directors consider the sale of the extracted oil and gas to have no separate distinct goods or services and have concluded that there is only one performance obligation, being the delivery of the goods.

In 2013, revenue from the sale of gas produced from the Ceres field was not received by the Group but by the owners of other fields connected to the common pipeline system, with Egdon receiving the right to future gas production from those other fields. In the 2013 financial statements, the revenue forgone by Egdon was accrued. Under IFRS 15, such revenue is not accrued; instead the right to receive future gas is recognised as a contract asset with a corresponding deduction from the costs of production. Revenue is recognised as received by the company. The value of the right to receive future gas is based on the estimated sales value of the gas to be received.

For the period ended 31 January 2019, this results in an increase in revenue of £150,000 and an increase of cost of sales of £150,000. (For the period ended 31 January 2018: an increase in revenue and cost of sales of £127,000; for the year ended 31 July 2018: £436,000). This change in accounting policy had no impact on the Group's equity.
