*Provide a future production well for the development of the field.

*Deepen the appraisal well into additional low-risk exploration targets with the aim of establishing a larger resource base for longer term growth.

 Anchois-1 gas discovery well re-entry highlight:

* Assess the integrity of the previously drilled well.

* Evaluate the productivity and gas characteristics of the discovered A Gas Sand.

*Provide a second future production well for the development of the field.

The drilling Operations of the Anchois-2 gas appraisal & exploration well and re-enter of the previously drilled Anchois-1 gas discovery well are expected to take up to approximately 40 days.
“I am pleased to announce that the Stena Don has now arrived on site, with operations to commence immediately, for a potentially transformational drilling programme for Chariot. Our recently completed oversubscribed fundraise allows us to drill both the Anchois-2 gas appraisal well and re-enter the Anchois-1 gas discovery well and we anticipate updating the market separately after the completion of each operation. On behalf of the Chariot team, I would like to thank the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development in Morocco, ONHYM and all our wider stakeholders for their continued support and we look forward to keeping everyone updated on this exciting drilling campaign.”Adonis Pouroulis, Acting CEO of Chariot, commented.
