According to terms of the October 2011 farmout with Naftna Industrija Srbije jsc Novi Sad (NIS), NIS will earn an 85% interest by contributing 100% of the costs through the mandatory Phase 1 and optional Phase 2 exploration periods. East West will retain a 15% carried interest across all blocks through Phase 1 and Phase 2.

The minimum Phase 1 exploration mandatory program across all four blocks includes shooting and interpreting 2D and 3D seismic data and drilling three wells per block for 12 wells in total over the next 2 years. The four blocks cover a combined 1 million gross acres in the Pannonian basin.

The drilling will target conventional reservoirs using conventional technology, East West Petroleum said.
