The Company continues its farm-out process to secure quality joint venturers to participate in the drilling of the Hawkeye-1 exploration well and looks forward to being able to provide an update on these discussions in the near term.

“Securing the Department of Energy extension of Sub Phase 4 is an important step in progressing our exploration program in this high impact area. The combination of the excellent prospectivity of SC55 and the funding arrangement secured enables Otto to offer a very attractive exploration opportunity as part of a farm-out campaign. We look forward to providing an update on these discussions in the near term."
