PTTEP Australia is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited (PTTEP), the Thai national petroleum exploration and production company.
Listed on the Thai Stock Exchange, PTTEP operates more than 40 projects globally. Find out more about our global operations here.
In Australia, PTTEP maintains a 100% interest in the highly prospective Cash Maple gas and condensate field, as well as a number of other exploration permits and retention leases in Australian Commonwealth waters.
PTTEP plans to commercialise the highly prospective Cash Maple gas and condensate field in the Timor Sea off northern Western Australia.
The Cash-Maple project contains an estimated 3.5 TCF of resources.
Cash Maple is located approximately 680km west of Darwin and 700km northeast of Broome.
Development of the gas fields will require a multi-billion dollar investment.
Drilling from the Cash-2 and Maple-2 appraisal wells in September 2011 and July 2012 respectively, provided encouraging results indicating a larger gas resource than previously projected.
In 2019, the Orchid-1 exploration well encountered gas and condensate with net pay thickness around 34 metres. The result is in line with PTTEP’s expectation and will be incorporated into development planning.
