MEO Australia Renews Petroleum Exploration Permit WA-360-P

MEO Australia Limited advises that Commonwealth – Western Australia Offshore Petroleum Joint Authority (the “Designated Authority”) has granted a five year renewal of Petroleum Exploration Permit WA-360-P commencing 6th March 2012.

The renewal includes the mandatory relinquishment of seven of the original 15 graticular blocks which comprised the permit and retention of eight graticular blocks. The minimum work program commitment in the first permit year includes the purchase of the portion of the existing Foxhound multi-client 3D seismic survey acquired in the permit during 2009.

The previously announced withdrawal of Petrobras International Braspetro BV and Rankin Trend Pty Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of Moby Oil & Gas Limited ASX: MOG), takes effect coincident with this renewal, which marks the end of the first 6 year exploration term of the permit.

The titleholders of the permit post renewal are North West Shelf Exploration Pty Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of MEO) with 62.5% and Cue Exploration Pty Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of Cue Energy Resource Limited ASX: CUE) with 37.5%. MEO will continue to operate the permit.

MEO’s CEO and MD Jürgen Hendrich, commented on the announcement:

“The renewal of WA-360-P marks the start of the next phase in our Carnarvon Basin exploration program. The commitment to purchase the Foxhound multi-client 3D seismic in Permit Year 1 represents a fast and cost effective way of extending the 3D seismic coverage to virtually the entire permit. This data will be used to determine whether the identified Maxwell prospect can be matured to drillable status.”

Substructures for UK Offshore Wind

Design, construction and installation

Optimising offshore substructures is one of the key challenges for reducing LCOE. Foundation designers have produced a variety of different solutions: monopiles, GBS, jackets, suction buckets and floating foundations. Looking at U.K. projects – different soils, water depths,fabrication timelines and installation challengescreate many questions for the industry to solve. We’re entering uncharted territory; projects arelarger, farther and more complex than ever completed.

Now is the time to have a close look at lessons learnt and define the room for improvement for the U.K. wind industry.
