The principal objectives of the 2015 three well drilling programme were to:
· penetrate the Middle Velkerri formation to assess hydrocarbon saturation and reservoir quality;
· evaluate oil versus gas maturity and determine the most prospective areas and depth window;
· provide further information on the aerial distribution of the target Middle Velkerri formation; and
· collect data points for subsequent vertical/horizontal drilling, completion and production testing.

Formation evaluation and reservoir characterisation will be carried out from these initial three wells through petrophysical interpretation, core analysis, geomechanical studies and stimulation design.
