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.

Acquisition of 7,000km of new 2D seismic was completed in May 2019 on time and within budget. The seismic data is being processed and analysed to identify areas for further 3D seismic acquisition.


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.
