Total Awarded Interest Two Deepwater Blocks Offshore Australia
Total's subsidiary, Total E&P Australia, has been awarded two exploration permits offshore northwestern Australia following the October 2005 licensing round.
Exploration permits WA-369-P and WA-370-P are located approximately 150 kilometers offshore in a water depth of around 1,400 meters. Total will have an interest of 30%, alongside Australia's Woodside Energy Ltd. (Operator, 50%) and Japan Australia LNG (MIMI) Pty Ltd (20%).
Seismic surveys will be conducted in block WA-370-P this year.
These interests illustrate Total's commitment to strengthening its presence in Australia, where it is already conducting exploration operations in two other deep offshore blocks.
