   --     Chuditch is believed to be a substantial gas discovery on a proven trend with upside

   --     final 3D PSDM (pre-stack depth migration) data on track for delivery in Q2 2022 
   --     Q4 2022 decision point for potential high impact drilling in 2023 
   --      A preliminary design for a Chuditch appraisal well 

-- Multiple export solutions for gas have been identified which are not dependent on any single concept/route

   --     Pipeline to LNG production facility 
   --     Beaço LNG via Greater Sunrise 
   --     Darwin LNG via multiple pathways 
   --     Standalone solutions 
   --     Floating LNG 
   --     Fixed Platform LNG 
   --     CNG (compressed natural gas) 

-- Development strategies for handling carbon dioxide include Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) at Bayu Undan and potential CCS solutions within the PSC
