Carnarvon Petroleum Limited (ASX:CVN) has had plenty of news to share of late resulting in shares surging to a new 12-month high of 69.5 cents early this month.

This makes next month’s Proactive CEO Sessions a must-attend for investors interested in the company and its oil and gas strategy.

Carnarvon’s managing director Adrian Cook will inform investors about latest developments at the Dorado-1 and Phoenix South-3 wells of its Phoenix joint venture project on the North West Shelf.

He will also talk about plans for the Buffalo project in Timor-Leste territorial waters.

This project appears economically compelling based on Carnarvon’s preliminary mean recoverable volume of 31 million barrels, which has been reviewed by leading independent consulting firm RISC.


It is the oil discovery at Dorado-1 well that has spurred strong investor interest.

This has now been confirmed as the third largest discovery in the history of the North West Shelf.

Leading oil and gas consultancy firm Wood Mackenzie puts the Dorado 2C contingent oil resource of 171 million barrels of oil behind the Barrow Island and Wanaea resources.

Very few junior ASX-listed oil and gas companies have participated in a discovery of this magnitude.

Carnarvon holds a 20-30% interest in the four associated permits that comprise the Phoenix project, including the Dorado, Roc and Phoenix South discoveries.
