Mitra Energy has entered into an agreement with AziPac Limited to farm-out 40% interest in the Bone PSC off Indonesia. The Bone PSC is situated in Bone Bay, offshore South Sulawesi, and lies in water depths extending from the coast to over 2,000m. The block covers an area of 7,516 sq km.
Post-transaction Bone PSC ownership: Mitra Energy (60%, operator) and AziPac Limited (40%).
