Exploration

In 2018, Santos elected to proceed to the third stage of the Farm-in agreement in EP112 by drilling the giant Dukas prospect. Drilling was suspended due to extremely high pressures before penetration of the Heavitree Formation or basement.  Central and Santos are planning a return to the well in 2021. The Southern Amadeus region contains a variety of structural styles, and additional Heavitree Formation/Fractured basement leads have been identified from potential field data as well as the 2013/14 and 2016/2018 seismic programs.
