MARCH QUARTERLY ACTIVITY REPORT
Sacramento Basin Natural Gas Prices
Sacramento Basin-focusednatural gas developer Sacgasco Limited (ASX: SGC) ("Sacgasco" or "the Company") is pleased to provide the Quarterly Activities Report for the calendar quarter ending 31 March 2020.
EXPLORATION, APPRAISAL AND NEW VENTURES
Gas Flow Enhancement
Conventional Natural Gas flows from unstimulated sandstone reservoirs have regained a relative advantage to the activities in shale-focused oil and natural gas industry following the collapse of world oil prices.
1 | P a g e
Consequently, the company has prepared a work-over program designed to enhance gas flows from existing natural gas wells. Initially workovers on 3 wells are being planned and permitted. These are low cost investments, with anticipated short economic pay-back characteristics, that can enhance the foundation for Sacgasco's growth.
Borba Natural Gas Prospect
As previously announced Sacgasco has received the Drilling Permit from California Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources for Borba 1-7 well.
The Company interprets the Borba prospect to be an optimal location to test multiple stacked amplitude anomalies and potential channel fill conventional sand reservoirs, in a vertical well.
During the reporting quarter the access road to the Borba well location was upgraded as part of drilling preparations. The drilling of the Borba well has been delayed by practical and risk considerations associated with uncertainties around COVID 19 limitations on personnel and equipment deployment. Until these are clarified the Company is unable to provide further timing guidance.
The Company continued to maintain leases in the Sacramento Basin during the quarter. Sacgasco has a working interest (WI) of between 10% and 100% in oil and gas leases which cover natural gas prospects ranging in size from 5-20 Bcf to Tcf recoverable prospective resources of Natural Gas.
Sacgasco continues its strategic analysis of well histories and seismic to uncover opportunities for growth.
GAS FLOW UPDATE

December 2019 Quarter
Gross mcf * (100%)
Net SGC mcf (after Royalty)
*mcf - Thousand Cubic feet gas
Gas flows were slightly reduced in the quarter by operational interruptions exacerbated by COVID-19 restrictions.
The relevant Natural Gas prices in California for the last quarter have been significantly above, and are currently some 40% above, the USA benchmark Henry Hub natural gas prices.
CURRENT QUARTER OBJECTIVES
Implementing a work-over program designed to enhance gas flows from existing gas wells. Initially workovers on 3 wells are being planned and permitted.
Planning for the drilling of the Borba Prospect in 2020 will be pursued within the practical limitations and risks imposed by the current COVID 19 operating environment.
The Company will continue to review potential projects for their strategic fit.

SGC's current focus is unlocking the underlying value from its natural gas prospects in the under- explored parts of the Sacramento Basin and elsewhere as opportunities arise.

About Sacgasco Limited (ASX. SGC)
Sacgasco Limited (ASX: SGC) is an Australian-based energy company appraising, developing and flowing clean conventional natural gas in the Sacramento Basin, onshore California.
SGC has an extensive portfolio of conventional-reservoir, natural gas flowing wells; and prospects at both exploration and appraisal stages, including Tcf natural gas opportunities.
The Company is targeting gas supply to the premium local Californian gas market and burgeoning LNG market in North America.
Sacgasco is of the view that the size of prospects in California have been the potential to supply both domestic California natural gas and export LNG markets including those to Asia.
Sacgasco's strategy is to find and develop under-valued and under-explored opportunities connected to under-supplied oil and gas markets with attractive product prices.
US exploration is conducted on leases grant by Mineral Right owners, in SGC's case primarily private individuals or groups. Leases can vary in size from very small parcels (part of an acre) to large landholdings (covering a few square miles). Leases generally are for 5 years and rentals are paid annually. There are no firm work commitments associated with the leases. Some leases are 'Held By Production' (HBP) and royalties are paid to mineral right owners in lieu of rentals. SGC has not listed all it leases as it is impractical and not meaningful for potential project value assessment in a conventional natural gas play. A detailed listing of leases may also lead to a loss of competitive advantage and consequent reduced value to SGC shareholders.
