The Company’s most important current and short term future planned oil and gas exploration and development activities, by country, are:
Indonesia - The Company's 18% owned Indonesian operating subsidiary, CGB2, drilled 4 exploration wells in the Bengara-II Block during fiscal 2008.
Field shooting and recording operations on the 3D portion of the 2009 Bengara-II block seismic acquisition program was completed in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The full original 3D program of 178 square kilometers (120 km2 full fold) was recorded. Computer processing of the entire 3D program was also completed. Interpretation of the 3D dataset has begun and is expected to be completed by end November 2011.
Original 2009 plans called for a total of 920 line kilometers of new 2D seismic data to also be shot and recorded. Repositioning of some lines and abandonment of others due to the prawn farm issues has resulted in a reduction of the planned 2D program. CGB2 now expects to complete a total of 685 line kilometers of new 2D seismic recording. Field shooting and recording operations on the revised 2D portion of the 2009 Bengara-II block seismic acquisition program are now over 85% completed. Field operations are expected to complete and cease by end November 2011. Computer processing of the 2D program is expected to be completed by year end 2011.
The Company expects that CGB2 will drill 2 wells in the Bengara-II Block during fiscal 2012. The first of these will be the Muara Makapan-2 an appraisal well targeted on the gas and condensate discovered at Muara Makapan-1 well. The second will be an exploration well drilled on a target identified from interpretation of new seismic completed in 2011.
The Company also expects to seek new oil and gas exploration and production properties in Indonesia and elsewhere in SE Asia during fiscal year 2012.
