The committed work program under the agreement in the Percy Creek Forward Work Program is expected to cost US$275,000 and includes 2D and 3D seismic acquisition and processing over the prospects and pre-investment in drilling permits and planning to enable a possible 2019 drilling date.
Big Star Energy Limited has no working interest in the project currently. Under the terms of the Farmin Agreement, Big Star will acquire a 20% working interest in the leases on completion of the seismic acquisition and processing programme and the remaining 80% working interest on the exercise of the option.
