About the Exploration

The Petrel 7 appraisal well was drilled inĀ  2011 when the Bonaparte LNG joint venture was assessing the viability of a floating LNG development option, involving the Petrel, Tern and Frigate fields.

In June 2014, Santos advised the market that it would not be proceeding with the floating option, and since that time has been considering a number of alternative development options including the near-shore LNG processing option.
