– Production facilities including separator, heat treater, compressor and four 400 barrel storage tanks; all wells are tied in via pipeline to the production facilities

– Two additional 750 barrel storage tanks

– Direct sales and tie-in point to the Plains Midstream Pipeline network

– First four wells to be brought into production either during the current winter work programme, if weather allows, or as part of a summer work programme; further two wells to be considered for production reinstatement later in the year

– First four wells forecast to add a combined initial production rate of 75 barrels of oil per day
