The operator still anticipates first oil production from the Beibu Gulf project by the end of 2012. The ramp-up to full-field peak production is anticipated during 2013.

Participating interests in the Beibu Gulf project are: CNOOC Limited 51.00%; Roc Oil (China) Company 19.60%; Horizon Oil (Beibu) 14.70%; Petsec Petroleum (wholly owned by Horizon Oil) 12.25%; Oil Australia (Majuko Corp) 2.45%.
