Santos pushes ahead with Apollo farm-in

SANTOS has decided to proceed with its PEL 456 farm-in in the upper Hunter Valley, New South Wales, following encouraging results from the phase 2a farm-in work program.

Apollo, which owns 85% of the coal seam gas rights in PEL 456, said Santos would proceed with phases 2b and 2c of the farm-in to earn a further 35% interest in the CSG rights in the permit.
