Woodside acquires African acreage

Woodside has entered into an agreement with Impact Oil & Gas AGC Ltd to acquire a 65% participating interest in a Production Sharing Contract (PSC) and associated joint operating agreement in the AGC Profond block located in the joint development area between Senegal and Guinea-Bissau. 

The AGC Profond PSC covers approximately 6,700 km² and its water depths range from 1,400m to
3,700m.

Impact will retain a 20% participating interest and Entreprise AGC SA (an entity owned by Senegal and
Guinea-Bissau pursuant to the documents governing the Zone) has a 15% participating interest in the
PSC. Woodside will be the operator of the PSC.

Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the PSC represented an opportunity for Woodside to secure high
quality acreage in a focus area of interest.

“This builds on recent acquisitions in Cameroon, Gabon and Morocco and reflects our disciplined and
strategic approach to studying regional petroleum systems,” Coleman said.

The completion of the farm-in, and Woodside’s acquisition of the interest, is subject to conditions
precedent including regulatory approvals.
