The Dublin-headquartered company has a joint venture with Origin Energy, operator of the Beetaloo licences, in Australia's Northern Territory.

The programme involves the drilling and hydraulic testing of two horizontal wells.

Earlier this year the group said Origin Energy had signed a rig contract with Ensign Australia to cover stage two of its 2019 drilling campaign.

This will allow assessment of the liquid rich gas fairway targets in the Kyalla and Velkerri formations. Falcon's portfolio also includes projects in South Africa and Hungary.
