The Pinhoe-1 exploration discovery well encountered approximately 197 ft (60 m) of net gas pay in the Barrow and Mungaroo sands. Pinhoe-1 is in WA-383-P 124 mi (200 km) north of Exmouth off the Western Australia coast. The well was drilled in 3,048 ft (929 m) of water to a TD of 13,396 ft (4,083 m).

The Arnhem-1 exploration discovery well confirmed approximately 149 ft (45.5 m) of net gas pay in the upper Mungaroo Sands. Arnhem-1 is in WA-364-P 180 mi (290 km) north of Exmouth off the Western Australia coast. The well was drilled in 3,963 ft (1,208 m) of water to a TD of 9,557 ft (2,913 m).
