Central Accepts Conditions for Grant of Dingo Production License in NT

Central Petroleum Limited (Central or Company) revealed Tuesday that the company has accepted all regulatory conditions clearing the way for the grant of the Dingo Petroleum Production Licence 7 (PL7) near Alice Springs in Australia's Northern Territory.

Central recently acquired the Dingo Gas Field. The Northern Territory Minister for Mines and Energy offered to grant PL7, which will convert from a Retention License to a Production License permitting gas production from the Dingo Gas Field.

Central has written to the Northern Territory Department of Mines and Energy accepting the offer and its conditions.

“Prior to 2014 the Company had no production license and in the last three months the Company now has been offered two production licenses, with PL7 marking the beginning of the Dingo Gas Field Development”, said Managing Director, Richard Cottee.

“First gas sales to Power and Water Corporation in Alice Springs are expected to commence in the first quarter of next year if the Company is able to obtain NT Government approval for the pipeline and all other clearances are provided as planned.”

“The Dingo Gas Field Development is fully funded under a Loan Facility Agreement with Macquarie Bank with construction consisting of wellhead facilities, gathering pipelines, gas conditioning facilities, a 27.9 mile (45 kilometer) sales gas pipeline to Brewer Estate in Alice Springs, compression and custody transfer metering facilities”, said Cottee.
