Investment summary

Board approval has recently been given for developing the $5m Surprise West project in the Amadeus Basin. A production licence is expected to be granted by the end of Q3, with the production start-up probably following by the end of 2013. We would expect Surprise production to be over 500 b/d with payback in around nine months. Significantly, Central Petroleum (CTP) is also engaged in Surprise farm-out discussions, which could be a prelude to the appraisal of the eastern zone of the property. This offers the prospect of a material expansion in the current modest 2P reserves of 1.1mm barrels. Meanwhile, the JVs with Santos and Total are now unconditional, paving the way for work to begin in earnest. CTP has indicated that its spending requirements are underpinned by expected cash flow in CY13.

Industry outlook

CTP's farm-outs to Total and Santos follow similar deals in 2011/12 for Hess, ConocoPhillips and Statoil, affirming the interest global players now have in Australia's emerging oil and gas plays.
