"During Q2/Q3 Permex focused on operating and corporate efficiencies by adding new stable production in Q1 2019, which have helped Permex to reduce operating expenses and liabilities," the firm said in its statement on Friday.
"In Q3 2019, the company continued its operations on the 7 of its 8 fields in west Texas and southeast New Mexico. This included well cleanouts, chemical treatment, shutting in lower producing wells, and plugging two saltwater disposal wells. Facility upgrades occurred at the Henshaw property in New Mexico and wells placed in operation," it added.
For the rest of the year, Permex told investors it would focus on strengthening the balance sheet while optimizing new production and reducing per barrel costs. It will also prepare for horizontal drillings of its San Andres assets.
