Ascent Resources plc (LON:AST) has just raised around £4.5 million to bring its gas field in Slovenia into production early next year. Ascent’s an independent oil and gas exploration company focused predominantly on European onshore projects.
Chief executive Colin Hutchinson tells Proactive: ”Ascent’s primary asset is this gas field in Slovenia. Ascent’s been involved there since 2007, drilled two wells in 2011, proved it was a significant asset and we’ve been working since then to bring that asset into production”.
”We had a major breakthrough in August of last year when we signed a gas sales agreement with INA to sell the gas to them at the border and then last week we announced that we’ve raised the money to fund the capex that we need to get it into production”, Hutchinson added.
