In block 32, 14 discoveries have already been made. The geographic dispersion requires a technical development concept that unites several discoveries.
The consortium made significant progress towards determining a technical development concept for the Centre South East (CSE) cluster. Approval of the Conceptual Development Plan (CDP) was by the consortium and the concession holder will reduce the range of options and enable advancement of the project on the basis of a single concept.
In 2012, an extension was authorised for the exploration period of the Central North East (NE) area for two periods of three and two years, in order to investigate the potential of the identified prospects.
