Under the terms of the FIA, Sonangol agreed to fund 85% of the cost of two exploration wells in Block 9 in return for receiving a 70% interest. On 17 August 2020, the Company announced that formal Cuban regulatory approvals had been received for Sonangol to acquire this 70% interest and drilling operations commenced in September 2021 and are ongoing at the date of this report. Group Commitments and contingent liabilities For the current sub-period of Block 9, the remaining committed activity is the drilling of one well, 15% of the cost of which is to be met by Melbana. It is expected that the current drilling of the Zapato-1 exploration well should satisfy this commitment. Additional amounts have been allowed for Melbana’s share of appraisal of the oil encountered to date and post well studies and planning which together are estimated to total US$13.0million to the end of next fiscal year. These are budgeted amounts and not commitments. The expected expenditure towards meeting primary term commitments for permits WA-544-P, NT/P87 and AC/P70 up to the end of the next fiscal year is forecast to be $1,000,000.
