Location map - Activity: Levitt-1 Exploration Drilling (refer to description)

Apache proposes to drill the Levitt-1 exploration well in this permit area using a mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU). The Levitt-1 exploration well, located in the Carnarvon Basin, will be drilled to assess the lithology and presence of hydrocarbons in the North Rankin and Legendre formations. The expected fluid is light oil.
The proposed well is located in a water depth of approximately 1,160 m and lies approximately 250 km north from the closest mainland coast (Karratha) (see map).
Apache proposes to drill the Levitt-1 well in Q4 2014. The exact timing of the Activity is dependent upon asset availability, weather conditions and receiving the necessary statutory approvals. The Levitt-1 exploration well is expected to take approximately 45–60 days to complete.
