As previously advised (Oct. 28, 2013) following a review of both the conventional and unconventional prospectivity of the block and considering the permit timeframes and work program, the Joint Venture decided to relinquish the entire block once operations and final reporting were complete. The Joint Venture was notified that the Department of Natural Resources and Mines had accepted the relinquishment proposal following the completion of the plug and abandonment of the Hoadleys-1 well, rehabilitation of the well site and submission and approval of the related reports.
