  • The fields have an estimated gross combined 2C and P50 Recoverable Resource of 100 to 150 Bcf PRMS SPE (plus Moby 30Bcf GIIP under evaluation).
  • Vic/P47 is within km’s of east coast gas pipelines (Patricia Baleen and Kipper)
  • OBL is currently undertaking the following work:
  • Seismic reprocessing
  • Geological and Geophysical Studies;
