We have established, valuable assets in Vietnam, with production at two fields (TGT & CNV) and further potential for growth from two additional exploration blocks (125 & 126).

Production in 2022 from the TGT and CNV fields net to our working interest
The average realised crude oil price in 2022 was $106.44/bbl (2021: $72.61/bbl), a 47% increase year on year, and the premium to Brent was over $4/bbl on average (2021: just under $2/bbl)

Production blocks

Blocks 16-1 and 9-2, which contain the TGT and CNV fields respectively, are located in shallow water in the hydrocarbon-rich Cuu Long Basin, near the Bach Ho field, the largest in the region with production already in excess of one billion barrels of oil equivalent.

Exploration blocks

Blocks 125 & 126, awarded in 2017, are in moderate to deep waters in the Phu Khanh Basin, north east of the Cuu Long Basin.

The 3D seismic processing is substantially complete and the ongoing interpretation of this data has resulted in the mapping of a variety of interesting Leads in this relatively unexplored basin, with further work needed to refine them into Prospect sizes pre-drill. 


The blocks are operated through non-profit Joint Operating companies in which each partner holds an interest equivalent to its share in the respective Petroleum Contract.

Pharos Energy has a 30.5% working interest in Block 16-1 which contains 97% of the Te Giac Trang (TGT) field and is operated by the Hoang Long Joint Operating Company. Pharos’ unitised interest in the TGT field is 29.7%. Pharos also has a 25% working interest in the Ca Ngu Vang (CVN) field located in Block 9-2, which is operated by the Hoan Vu Joint Operating Company. Our partners in both blocks are PetroVietnam Exploration and Production, a subsidiary of the national oil company of Vietnam and PTTEP, the national oil company of Thailand.
