Located in Commonwealth water off Western Australia and South Australia.
Santos has two exploration permits in the Bight Basin, located in Commonwealth waters offshore across the Western Australia and South Australia.
The acreage border provides Santos with access to a large frontier basin with oil prospectivity which will be being actively de-risked by other operators through wells in adjacent permits by other operators.
In 2015, Santos completed a 3D seismic program over permit EPP43 to establish a geological subsurface model. Processing and analysis is ongoing.
