Santos has had promising results from a drilling program at its Corvus-2 well in the WA-45-R permit, which it acquired via the takeover of Quadrant Energy. Wood Mackenzie has suggested that the Corvus-2 discovery may hold 2.5 trillion cubic feet of gas and 25 million barrels of condensates. Meanwhile, Oil Search has reported revenue of $US398.1m for the March quarter, which is 21 per cent lower than the three months to December. Production fell by three per cent, to 7.25 million barrels of oil equivalent.

Woodside Petroleum has stopped production at its Pluto LNG field in Western Australia. On 16 March 2015, a cyclone caused a drilling rig to be torn from its moorings. As the rig drifted 5.5 km towards the Pluto field, a shutdown was ordered to protect the plant from damage. It could take up to 30 days to repair the rig
