Woodside Successfully Appraises Xena Discovery

Woodside says the two Xena appraisal wells, Xena-2 and Xena-3, which were drilled during the first quarter of 2008 by the Ocean Bounty were successful. The appraisal wells confirmed both the nature of the reservoir and the presence of gas saturated sands in a previously unpenetrated fault block. With the result being within the range of expected outcomes, no further appraisal drilling is required prior to development planning.

The Xena wells are located in permit WA-350-P offshore Australia approximately 190 kilometers northwest of Karratha near Woodside's Pluto field.
