Pace asked whether the SPU's appraisal plan is consistent with the exploration programme as described. Guderjahn stated that lhis issue is being considered so it is nol clear yet; cerlainly, lhe exploration programma is not consislent with delaying all appraisal activity. In the new blocks, a DOCD has to be made within two years of the exploration discovery and first production must be within six years of the DOCD. Ahmd Afifi overviewed GoS and Western Desert play systgms but concntrated on the GoS. Two ILX wells are to bE drilled in GoS in 2009 - NG366 and North Burtocal - which wera idenlified on new OBC seismic data. Proposition is that further OBC could open up previously under-exploredareas (largely coastal transition zones and shippinglanes)which could containsignificent YTF. The largestYTF appearsto be in the NorthernGoS but (even OBC) seismic data quality precludes effective exploration there and so have ohosen to focus in the Southern GoS. Plan is to have a rolling programme of acquiring one or two OBC programms each year with follow-on exploration wells drilled within two years of the OBC acquisition. Access to SE July block is available now from Santos - 40% interest and operatorship. Concession is currently under-explored owing io poor seismic data quality under shipping lanes and is exactly in-line wilh forward strategy for GoS. Expect that an offer of -$1 m (lease capital) would be acceptablEto Santos but ned to make thE offer imminently. There are no commilments on the block but an OBC (-g4m net) would be required to explore effectively and should drill in 2011 before next phase of concession (with commitmenls) starts in 2012. Forum discussed whether pursuing ILX in GoS was activity that it supponed. lt was agreed that ctearty it is activity that will not renew BP; but a cost of $30m gross ($10m OBC and S20m per well) to generate a SOmmboe prospecl at P3of 0.33 gives a discovery cost of -$2yboe which is competitive for llX. On this basis, Forum supporled the thrust of th forward plan for GoS although stressgd that failure in the 2009 wells may well impact the implementationof that plan. Forum also requested the Egypt SPU to priorilise rigorously the various areas of running room end to reconsidr whethr an area (6.9. Northern Go.S)has been screened out prematurely. Forum supported making an ofier for 40% of SE July for a modest (<$1m) payment; Guderjahn subsequently advised that Santos accepted BP's opening offer of $499k.

Tuesdav 28thApril South Atlantic Project(Piggott)

Piggott highlighted the South Atlantic AOl, BP's current regional seismic coverage and the identified gaps that needed lo be filled to maka progress in the South Atlantic Project and an overview of the status of the Cretaceous play along the Ghana/Cote D'lvoire/Liberia/SierraLeone margin. A recent non-compete deal had been signEd with Anadarko in West Afica. Piggott also reviewed recent land grabs being made in East Africa - the area remEins lolrrranked by BP due to source rock presence risks. Piggott proposed purchase of additional 2D seismic data to infill data gaps in Brazil Barreirinhas (rank #'l), Liberia/SierraLono (#1), Equatorial Guinea (#2), Brazil Camamu (#3) and Benin (lt4). A sel of data could be purchased fom TGS for $3.9m (incltdes a bulk purchase discount); in addilion, a $1m credit was available with GXT for additional data purchase, A lam is available to work the data (AngdaDG). Daly asked how we could get ahead of the game - e.g. Anadarko appear to have made a successful early move into the West Aftica Crelaceous play. Piggoft replied that access lo regional seismic offshore is key; onshore, scranir tools such as the Frogtsch stJdies providd a more regional, cost efbctive solution. Forum supported the technical proposal; approval of the purchase was delayed until rEview of 2009 performance and any other options for 2009 seismic spend.
