Board Changes


The Company's key industry sector is oil and gas exploration and production, and the Board has decided to strengthen its sector-specific capabilities by appointing a non-executive director with extensive and relevant industry experience. Chris Flavell has therefore been appointed as a director of the Company with immediate effect.


Christopher Hugh Flavell, aged 58, has 35 years' experience in operating E&P companies and consultancies and brings a wealth of knowledge and contacts in the industry. Most recently he managed Tullow Oil's exploration geoscience team from 2007-2013, which was a period of outstanding success for the company and in 2013 he left Tullow to form a geoscience focussed recruitment consultancy.


Chris is currently a director of Zinc Consultants Limited but is not and has not been a director or partner of any other companies or partnerships in the last 5 years.


In addition, Colin Glass has agreed to step down from his position as non-executive Director and Company Secretary, at the Annual General Meeting.


Stuart Paton, Chairman said "The Board is most grateful to Colin for his outstanding contribution to the Company's overall development since its formation in 2000, and in particular his contributions as a board member throughout that period. In 2000 he led the negotiations for the spin-out of the Company from the University of Leeds, and in 2005 he played a significant part, together with IP Group, in the flotation of the Company on AIM.  His accountancy practice, WGN, supported the finance function of the Company until the Board agreed it was appropriate to appoint a full-time Financial Controller in June 2014, following which he helped to ensure a smooth transition. The Board wish Colin all the very best for the future.


We are very pleased to welcome Chris to the Board. His experience and contacts in the industry will be invaluable as the Company looks for opportunities to grow the business."


There is no further information to be disclosed under paragraph (g), Schedule 2 and AIM Rule 17 of the AIM Rules of Companies in respect of this appointment.
