Landmark moment for the company

"The securing of the approvals is a landmark moment for the company and I'd like to thank everybody involved in the permitting process for their hard work and commitment in finally getting us to this point,” said Matthew Idiens, Rose chief executive.

“We have all been waiting for this moment for some time, to be able to commence operations in the Paradox Basin, which will finally enable us to initiate the value creation from the project.

He added: "Our seismic shoot team has already commenced the optimisation designs for the final shoot parameters and as a result of their significant operational experience within the Basin, we expect to be able to cut costs and maximise the efficiency of the shoot.”
