The primary reservoir targets are the Waarre C and Waarre A Formations which are the productive reservoirs in the Casino and Minerva gas fields.According to Cooper, the chance of finding gas and proving a minimum developable resource size at Annie is estimated at 56%.On the other hand, Elanora is a large amplitude supported structure that straddles VIC/L24, VIC/L30, and VIC/P44, located ten kilometers west of the Casino gas field and approximately six kilometers to a pipeline tie-in point.The prognosed reservoir, Waarre A Formation, is the same as the producing offset fields at Casino, Henry, and Netherby. The company believes that the chance of finding gas and proving a minimum developable resource size at Elanora is estimated at 44%.Annie and Elanora is operated by Cooper Energy which holds a 50 percent interest while Mitsui E&P Australia and Peedamullah Petroleum hold 25 percent each.Worth noting, this is not the first time the company is using the Ocean Monarch rig for its operations.
