Tangiers Petroleum's shares edged higher Wednesday after the oil and gas company said it executed its farm-out agreement with CWH Resources and Ansbachall.

The agreement covers Australian exploration permits WA-442-P and NT/P81 which are located in the southern Bonaparte Basin, about 250 kilometres south-west of Darwin.

Under the farm-out deal, CWH will fund all costs and expenses associated with seismic work, drill planning and exploration drilling within the permit areas up to a cap of AU$35m.
