Pipeline Installation Delayed at Henry, Netherby Gas Fields

The Henry and Netherby gas fields were scheduled to be connected to the Casino production facilities by mid 2009.

Santos, as project operator, has advised that the installation of the pipeline will be delayed as the pipe laying vessel is now not available to install the pipeline in the first half of 2009. The contractor has offered to complete the contract scope of work in the next weather window, with mobilization in late 2009. This timing would not impact on forecast gas production levels.
