EP 126 well test delayed by NT Government process

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

The Northern Territory (“NT”) Government has advised that approximately 50% of the NT could be declared as reserved areas and is currently undertaking a consultation process with those petroleum companies affected by its proposal. Under the proposal, Sites of Conservation Significance (“SOCS”) are one of the catergories of land that will be declared ‘no go zones’ for petroleum exploration and production and be excised from pre-existing and future petroleum licence areas. A considerable portion of the prospective areas within Vintage Energy Ltd’s (“Vintage”, ASX: VEN) EP 126, in the Bonaparte Basin, is affected by the proposed reserved area as SOCS. A submission has been made to the NT Government and clearly outlines Vintage’s view that past, current and future approved land use within the majority of EP 126 are inconsistent with the declaration of a reserved area on the basis of a SOCS.
