$EEENF IT IS already clear that Merlin-1 has delivered by far the best outcome of any of the 5 wells drilled by 88 Energy in Alaska over the last 6 years. That means it's bigger than Charlie-1!!! Charlie-1 was a confirmed discovery from the Side Wall Core Samples...they know what they got, bot have to confirm it thru' a Laboratory, data will be forthcoming and IF determined a discovery as Charlie-1 was GOOD NEWS!!!! Core analysis is used to define not only the porosity and permeability of the reservoir rock, but also to unearth the fluid saturation and grain density. All of these measurements will tell them what they need to know to determine the discovery and oil content! The cores are going to result in another big discovery....
