Baron Oil has provided an update on operational activities on the TL-SO-19-16 Production Sharing Contract ('Chuditch PSC'), offshore Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste.

Baron's wholly owned subsidiary, SundaGas, has entered into contracts to conduct a survey at the planned drilling location for the Chuditch-2 appraisal well, which is illustrated in the Company's presentation published on 11 October 2023 (See map below). Site Survey operations are expected to be carried out at the location during February and early March 2024.

The objective of the Site Survey, which is a requirement, is principally to identify any potential hazards at the proposed well site, ensuring that a drilling rig can be safely located there with minimal environmental impact. The Site Survey work consists of geophysical studies and physical investigation of the seabed and shallow geological section.

SundaGas maintains dialogues with other companies active in the region to identify operational synergies for the drilling of the Chuditch-2 appraisal well. These discussions have resulted in the opportunity to acquire the Site Survey in partnership with a nearby operator. The estimated cost savings that derive from sharing services and vessel mobilisation compared to standalone acquisition are significant. In addition, the shared operation enables SundaGas to acquire the Site Survey earlier than originally planned, enabling aspects of well design to be accelerated and the environmental approval submissions to be expedited.
