Number 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture, since the word 8 sounds similar to the word fā (发, which implies 发财, or wealth, in Mandarin or Cantonese). The number 8 is considered to be the luckiest number in Chinese culture, and prices in Chinese supermarkets often contain many 8s.



The companys goal is to build a successful exploration and production company that delivers material benefits to its shareholders and contributes to the development of the regions in which it works.

It aims to achieve this by targeting overlooked or emerging play types where its small team of experts can move quickly to capitalise on opportunities prior to larger industry players moving in.

The opportunities the company will seek will be based on robust technical evaluation together with informed socio-political decisions and cultural sensitivity in business relationships.

notes on possibility of production (from recent Q & A's)

Q What is the long term plan with the new Western Block project? Once drilled and proven, do you intend to continue as a producer and use the money generated to help fund any of the other projects? Or will you look to sell 88E's stake in the venture at that point to provide quicker access to a higher working capital?
A If it is successful then we will pursue the most accretive path for shareholders – could be an outright sale or could be that we fund it into development. Depends on many factors.

Q Is it possible, and our intention, to gain a Full Oil Production licence at Franklin Bluffs with multiple horizontal unconventional well setup? (For us or Farmee.) (Noting Alaska Gov serious need for tax revenues.)
A The equivalent to what you are asking is called a “Unit” – which comes with development plans and expenditure commitments. Now is not the right time to do that.

Q Given we have now shut in for winter with no plan in place for this to happen would Dave still consider that when we come out of hibernation are we still looking at 50/50 for a successful of IW2 or has the chances diminished to something less than 50/50. 2. Are we considering becoming a producer with a partner on the conventional oil to give us a war chest to do more work on the HZR at so point down the road.
DW We have not modified the 50/50 – if there was a material change we would announce. We consider a lot of things. This is a possible outcome. No guarantee it will happen though. ( Q & A 10/17)
