Corporate update

The termination of the State Agreement dated November 7, 2012, by an Act of the Parliament of Western Australia is a pre-condition to a number of agreements and transfers including the farm-in transaction with Roc Oil.

This Act was approved by the Western Australian Legislative Assembly (Lower House) in July 2018 and was approved by the Western Australian Legislative Council (Upper House) on August 15, 2018.

The Bill is now awaiting assent by the Governor and once this occurs the Bill will then become an Act of Parliament.

This is expected to occur in the coming days.
