An active and capable Board provides an excellent blend of oil and gas, finance, commercial and legal experience.
Products and servicesCarnarvon’s immediate objective is to create value from the production and exploration opportunities in its 40% interest in the Phetchabun Basin oil fields and exploration concessions in Thailand. Together with new joint venture partner and operator, TSX listed Pan Orient Energy Corp. (POE), Carnarvon is undertaking an extensive work programme including 3D seismic and a mix of development, appraisal and exploration wells to fully evaluate and test the field.
The longer term objective is to build Carnarvon’s asset base from exploration success and cash flow self sufficiency and be widely recognised for excellent technical credentials.
At the same time as Carnarvon develops its Thai interests new exploration and development opportunities are being actively canvassed with a principal focus on oil prolific basins in Asia and Australia.
