Carnarvon Petroleum to Abandon POE-7 in Thailand

On 21 November 2006, the POE-7 exploration well was drilled to a total depth of 1,125 meters. Log and RFT pressure data has indicated that all prospective reservoir zones were likely water bearing. As a result the well will now be plugged and abandoned as unsuccessful.

After the abandonment of POE-7 is complete, the Aztec #7 rig will be utilized for well testing and remedial operations while the drill pad construction for the next exploration well POE-9 is completed. POE-9 is anticipated to spud in early December 2006 and will be the last well of the Phase 1 program of eight wells. Meanwhile, testing operations are continuing on the previously drilled and successful six wells of Phase 1.
