Commenting; Bounty's CEO, Philip Kelso said:
"Bounty has commenced 2012 in a strong position with a 164% increase in petroleum revenue to A$1.72 million for the full year, and additions to its proved producing oil reserves and strategic additions to its acreage in the Cooper and Surat Basins.
Bounty's focus on its core oil projects enabled it to improve revenue while advancing its other exciting growth projects. Commercialisation of the KN1 gas pool in Nyuni Block will be a significant project in 2012, as we look for additional reserves in the Block. At the Nyuni 2 well the joint venture is about to deepen the well with a sidetrack.
The development drilling in Utopia Block has extended reserves and the recently completed 3D seismic surveys have indicated that the Utopia oil pool contains up to 8 million barrels of 2P reserves above the oil water contact.
During the half year Bounty continued to invest in seismic reprocessing and studies in ACP 32 in the Vulcan Graben offshore Western Australia, where better definition of the Wisteria / Azalea target is giving us confidence that in 2012 we will advance to another drill test of this 174 million barrel oil target. This will be an exciting test for Bounty shareholders given Bounty's increased interest of 15%.
Bounty is also continuing to place significant resources and effort into advancing its Surat Basin oil projects.
It will shortly undertake 3D seismic surveys to prepare for a multi-zone test updip from the Farrawell 1 oil discovery in ATP 754P. The well will also test for conventional gas/condensate and CSG.
Bounty's focus in the next year will be to again lift its revenue while endeavouring to maintain low overheads and pursuing its high impact projects."
