Mark T. Højgaard, CEO commented:

Atlantic Petroleum shows a small profit for 2021 due to value adjustments of the Orlando deferred consideration. In spite of this the year 2021 was another challenging year for Atlantic Petroleum because of production issues with the Orlando field. The operator of Orlando, Tailwind Energy, is planning a workover in the Third Quarter of 2022. If successful, the Orlando field is expected to produce 4,000 – 5,000 barrels of oil per day.

During 2021 the Company has continued to reduce overhead costs to create a very lowcost base. General and administration costs in 2021 were DKK 2 million compared to DKK 2.5 million in 2020.
