SYDNEY, Australia, Sept. 13, 2011 /CNW/ - An independent report has
increased Nido Petroleum Limited's ("Nido", ASX: NDO) prospective
resources in the Company's NW Palawan Basin, Philippines exploration
The report was completed by DeGolyer and MacNaughton (D & M). Gross
prospective original oil in place resources (OOIP) is estimated to be
24 billion barrels for the top 20 prospects in the Company's
exploration portfolio at 31 March 2011.
This is a large increase on the Company's May 2008 statement on its
gross prospective original oil in place resources (OOIP), which was
estimated at that time to be 11.8 billion barrels based on the
Company's entire Prospect and Lead Inventory.
The increase reflects the considerable maturation of the Company's
Prospect and Lead inventory since 2008 which has benefited from the
acquisition of further 2D and 3D seismic data and detailed prospect
generation across its extensive NW Palawan basin acreage portfolio.
The prospective resource estimates presented in the D & M report have
been reported in accordance with the Petroleum Resource Management
System (PRMS). The PRMS reporting system provides uniform guidelines
for the evaluation and reporting of petroleum reserves and resources.
