Carnarvon Wins Exploration Rights Offshore Australia

Carnarvon Limited was awarded a new exploration permit, WA-443-P in the Bedout sub basin offshore Western Australia. The new permit is located adjacent to Carnarvon's four existing permits, WA-435-P, WA-436-P, WA-437-P and WA-438-P, which are referred to as the Phoenix permits. Drilling has not been performed on the WA-443-P block, although one large Middle Triassic prospect was identified, named Jaubert, which is a faulted anticlinal closure.
