Karoon Gas Signs Rig Contract for WA-482-P Levitt-1 Well

Karoon Gas Australia Ltd. announced a semi-submersible drilling rig has been contracted to drill the first well for Apache and Karoon in the northern Carnarvon Basin exploration permit WA-482-P. The Levitt-1 exploration well is expected to spud during May. Subsequent to the farm-out of a 50% equity interest in the permit to Apache during May 2014, Apache will be responsible for 90% of the cost of the Levitt-1 exploration well up to a total well cost of USD 70 million. The net to Karoon dry-hole cost is estimated to be USD 5 million. Drilling of the Levitt prospect represents a significant milestone for Karoon. It is the first exploration target to be drilled by the joint venture in this new and very large exploration permit, covering 13,539 square kilometres. Exploration in the permit will evaluate new plays in the northern part of the Carnarvon Basin, with Levitt-1 to be the first well in what is expected to be an ongoing exploration program over a number of years.
