This could add significant value to the Vali Field as Odin - 1 likely to be tied into the Vali pipeline infrastructure* • Vali - 2 most likely to targe t Toolachee production without stimulation • Preferred connection point at Santos operated Beckler field • Gas marketing advantages – JV will be in a stronger position to market larger volumes of gas Further significant gas and oil potential in ATP 2021 to be evaluated by 3 D seismic program in 2 nd half CY 22 * The success of the CY21 drilling program has significantly increased the size of the Vali production hub and significantly improving the commerciality of the field.
