Roc Oil Temporarily Halts Production at Cliff Head

ROC, as Operator, advises that production from the Cliff Head Oil Field, Perth Basin, offshore Western Australia, has been temporarily shut in due to an electrical problem at the offshore platform.

As a consequence, trucking of oil to the BP refinery at Kwinana was suspended late yesterday. The problem is currently being rectified and it is expected that production will recommence as soon as possible.

Cliff Head joint venture partners are Roc Oil as operator with 37.5%; AWE with 27.5%; Wandoo Petroleum with 24%; ARC with 6%; Cieco Exploration with 5%.
