Notes to Editors

Deltic has created a strategically located portfolio of high-quality gas exploration licences in the Southern North Sea over several licensing rounds.  These licences are located in areas that have been underexplored despite significant discoveries such as Tolmount, Breagh, Pegasus and Cygnus, most of which have gone on to be developed and could provide ready access to export infrastructure for future developments on Deltic's licence acreage.
