MEO retains the option to withdraw at the end of each year in the Secondary Term of both Permits.

"The variation granted for AC/P50 allows additional technical information to become open file in time to integrate with our existing understanding to mature the identified leads towards drillable prospect status. The variation granted for AC/P51 aligns the work program with the maturity of advancing the existing identified leads towards drillable prospect status. Our technical teams are working diligently towards preparing both permits for a partial sale process early in the second half of the year."
