It also plans to get involved in a 12 well drilling programme in Woods County.

The firm's portfolio boasts current net production of 26.4 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Nortcote's Chief Executive, Randall J. Connally,said the firm had the opportunity to be 'part of the energy revolution currently taking place in US exploration and production".

"With existing production generating revenues and proven reserves with a net present value of $33.8m, far exceeding our initial market capitalisation, we believe we have a lot of room to create value for our shareholders," he said.
