Angus Energy, a conventional oil and gas development company, is pleased to announce subsequent to its RNS of 22 September 2017, the Company has received final approval from the Oil and Gas Authority ("OGA") for its Field Development Plan Addendum at the Brockham Oil Field (Production License PL235).


As stated in the Company RNS of 11 May 2017,  this OGA approval is the final regulatory consent needed for the Company to begin production from the Kimmeridge layers in well BR-X4Z ("X4Z").

Upon completion of this installation, production from X4Z will commence. Angus Energy will update the market in due course.
