McNamara now holds 2,121,430 shares in the company.

Non-binding MoU

In January the company entered into a non-binding MoU with APA Group (ASX:APA) for its 100%-owned Judith Gas Field permit, offshore Gippsland Basin, Victoria.

The MoU covers the scope and commercial framework for the provision of midstream infrastructure and services related to gas that will be potentially produced from the field.

Pre-FEED study

The parties have agreed the pre-front end engineering design (FEED) scope of works to be included in an early works agreement that will progress a preliminary design and cost study for the establishment of:

  • A subsea pipeline from Emperor’s Judith gas field;
  • A new gas processing train to operate in parallel with APA’s existing Orbost gas processing plant; and
  • An export pipeline to the Eastern gas pipeline located to the north of the Orbost gas processing plant.

Next steps

After costs are determined, APA and Emperor intend to negotiate a binding contract in the current quarter with the intention to commence the study in the second quarter.

Completion of the study will add certainty to a future project feasibility study and will also provide clarity on the scope and shorten the timeframe required for the completion of the project FEED that would be carried out after drilling of the Judith 2 Exploration and Appraisal Well.
