The Victorian Projects are currently the subject of a moratorium on conventional onshore gas exploration and development and accordingly it is not expected that there will be any significant activity on these projects in the near term.

Onshore Otway and Gippsland Basins

To complement Armour Energy's prospective areas in Northern Australia, the Company made a strategic investment in ASX listed Lakes Oil NL, an oil and gas explorer focused on the Otway and Gippsland Basins in Victoria, and entered an agreement to earn a 51% interest in two tenements (PEP166 and PEP169) held by Lakes Oil and a third option to acquire 50% of Lakes Oil's interest in a third tenement (PRL12).


  • Production to date of over 90 BCF within 20km of Moreys 1 well.
