On 27 July 2018 Pilot Energy announced that it had entered into a binding agreement for the sale of its interest in the Permit to Black Swan. Completion of the transaction was subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent, including approval of the transaction by the National Offshore Petroleum Titles Administrator (NOPTA). NOPTA has not approved the transfer of the interest to Black Swan. Consequently, on 18 December 2018, Black Swan advised Pilot Energy that it was terminating the sale agreement. Since then, Pilot has continued to work with Black Swan as joint venture partners in the Permit.
