Advent Energy is a public unlisted oil and gas exploration company based in Perth, Western Australia. Strategic appointments have included the appointment of former Schlumberger Asia President, Mr Goh Hock as Chairman of the board of Directors, and the appointment of Mr Ding Gui Ming, the former head of one of the world's largest oil producers, as a senior member of the Advisory Panel.
Mr Ding is a former senior Chinese Government Ministerial official with significant networks at the highest level in China. He was the former Head of Exploration for the China National Petroleum Company (CNPC), where he directed the exploration activity of more than 20 oilfields all over China. Mr Ding last served as Commissioner of the China State Asset Administration Office, where he reported directly to the Prime Minister's office and supervised the reform of major Chinese state enterprises.
Advent has recently increased its interest to 85% in the PEP11 project, offshore NSW, following the drilling of New Seaclem-1 in December 2010. Work is underway to continue to explore this 8,250 square kilometre permit adjacent to Australia's most populous state.
Of key importance in exploring the area is the numerous offshore oil and gas seeps that have been recorded from Long Reef to Catherine Hill Bay, giving rise to periodic oil slick occurrences along the coast, especially in the Cape Three Points, Terrigal area. In conjunction with direct hydrocarbon indicators (DHI) observed in seismic data, the basin is assessed as an active petroleum system. The PEP11 permit comprises multi-Tcf targets - the large potential reward of a successful drilling programme creates a very attractive exploration opportunity.
Advent Energy holds 100% of Exploration Permit EP 386 which covers the Western Australian section of the onshore Bonaparte Basin. Fifteen kilometres over the border into the Northern Territory, Advent holds 100% of Retention Licence RL-1 comprising the Weaber Gas Field. Advent is progressing plans to further evaluate the numerous gas and oil discoveries present in these permits for potential commercial development.
The Company also holds an 8.3% interest in a shallow, near shore permit in the Exmouth sub-Basin region of the Carnarvon Basin, which contains the undeveloped 7 - 18 billion cubic feet Rivoli Gas Field discovery with its 11 metre gas column within the Birdrong Sandstone, a prolific hydrocarbon producer in the Carnarvon Basin.
Advent Energy also holds a strategic interest in Central Petroleum Ltd.
