WA 460-P (Palta)
WA-460-P is a single graticule (80 km2) permit situated approximately 70km west of Cape Range in the western Exmouth sub-basin of the Carnarvon Basin. The permit lies in water depths of between 900 - 2,000m and overlies approximately 18% of the Palta structure that was unsuccessfully tested by Shell and Mitsubishi in WA-384-P in 2012/3. .
Cott (33.34%) originally lead the consortium of WHL Energy Ltd (33.33%) and Strike Energy (33.33%) in identifying and applying for WA-460-P. In light of the the Palta-1 result, the WA-460-P joint venturers are reviewing the permit exploration plans.
