The Board & Management are very pleased to provide this shareholder update which marks a significant milestone.

In late June 2018, Helios successfully completed a one stage frack in the vertical Quinn Creek 141 well to test oil shows and log indications between 4,744 and 4,880 feet in the lower Ojinaga Formation. On 19 July 2018, the Company reported that the well flowed 260 barrels of oil and 1,345 barrels of completion fluid in 168 hours (7 days). The oil produced is good quality, mature, 39 degrees API gravity light oil similar in composition to Eagle Ford oils. Gas was also produced at 456 mcf per day on a 34/64ths of one inch choke. As the well cleaned up and the percentage of completion fluid recovery rose, a steadily increasing oil cut was observed. Total load recovery (until the lower interval was shut in) is approximately 35% (3,509 barrels of completion fluid out of 10,187 barrels of completion fluid injected).
