Managing Director Interview on BRR Media


Northcote (AIM: NCT), an onshore US oil and gas exploration and production company, is pleased to provide shareholders with the opportunity to listen to an interview with Northcote Energy Managing Director Randy Connally.  In the interview, Randy Connally describes how:


·    Conventional oil prospects in Oklahoma and Louisiana remain attractive at oil prices sub $40 per barrel and are currently being prioritised for development

·    Unconventional projects requiring horizontal drilling or fracking will be held until the price environment is improved

·    Operational changes in Oklahoma have been undertaken and are expected to result in improved sustainable production levels and operating margins

·     A workover rig has been acquired which will bring costs in-house and allow for an ongoing roll out of its existing well workover programme

·    Northcote is implementing an ongoing cost cutting campaign and is evaluating and planning non-core asset sales as part of its capital strategy

·    Further details of the Company's 2015 programme will be provided in due course


Northcote CEO Randy Connally said, "While the current oil price environment is less than ideal, the depth and breadth of our portfolio gives us flexibility in managing this environment for a sustained period if necessary.  Our conventional oil prospects hold up well with many of them meeting our threshold 20% IRR target at prices well below $40 per barrel."


To listen to the interview, please follow this link: The interview will also be available on the Company's website today.
