- Alaska-focused oil company Pantheon Resources swung to a full-year loss after it wrote off assets in East Texas.

Losses for the year through June amounted to $21.7 million, compared to a profit of $16.7 million year-on-year.

The company booked impairments of $16.5 million on its East Texas assets following a full write down of the properties following a Covid-related drop in fuel prices.

Pantheon Resources had decided to prioritise its Alaskan assets and would exit East Texas entirely in 2021.

Drilling of the Talitha #A well in Alaska commenced this month, targeting four independent horizons 'which management believe offers cumulative potential in a success case in the region of 1 billion barrels of oil recoverable', the company said.
