During the first half of 2023, HEVI continued to execute on its focused strategy of developing the Company's 5.6 million acres of helium rights in southern Saskatchewan and advancing its ultimate goal of producing and selling helium, generating cash flow and driving positive returns for shareholders. HEVI has remained committed to maintaining ongoing financial flexibility, demonstrated by a positive working capital position of $8.8 million at June 30, 2023. In the first half of 2023, the Company added significantly to its seismic database, which now totals approximately 2,000 kilometers. Using the seismic data HEVI has accumulated to date, the Company's team is actively working on developing prospective helium targets and internally generated drilling opportunities that can be pursued through Q4/23 and Q1/24. As plans are solidified later in 2023, the Company looks forward to providing stakeholders with further updates.
The Company is also pleased to announce that its farm-in partner, North American Helium Inc. (" NAH "), has confirmed the spudding of the farmout well at 6-13-5-7W3 (" Test Well Area #2 "), pursuant to a previously announced seismic agreement (the " Seismic Agreement " or " SA ") (see news releases dated October 21, 2022 , and June 28, 2022 ). Test Well Area #2 is situated approximately 20 kilometers northeast of the NAH helium discovery at Mankota. NAH is responsible for 100% of the drilling costs for Test Well Area #2, while HEVI retains a 20% working interest in that well, supporting the Company's continued financial flexibility and capital conservation.
NAH has also informed HEVI of its intention to amend one of its previously selected locations from 5-36-3-9W3 to 12-36-3-9W3 (" Test Well Area #1 "), due to surface issues at the originally selected location. As Test Well Area #1 is now relocated on native prairie with regulatory requirements only allowing drilling access on frozen ground conditions, HEVI has granted NAH an extension of the spud date from the original August 31, 2023 to a date that is on or before November 1, 2023.
