MEO Australia Limited (ASX:MEO) (OTCQX:MEOAY) advises that the Thailand Department of Mineral Fuels, Ministry of Energy has formally approved the transfer of a 50% participating interest in the Gulf of Thailand G2/48 Concession from Pearl Oil Offshore Limited, an affiliate of Mubadala Petroleum (Mubadala), to Rayong Offshore Exploration Ltd (ROEL), a wholly owned subsidiary of MEO. Receipt of this approval represents completion of the transaction announced on 27th February 2012. Operatorship of the concession remains with Mubadala.

The G2/48 exploration concession covers 9,449 km2 in shallow waters of the Gulf of Thailand, proximal to the producing Jasmine oil field and nearby the Manora oil development. The G2/48 concession contains the Rayong Basin which has similar geological elements to nearby basins which host oil discoveries.

"These regulatory approvals represent the final step in completing this transaction. We are pleased to be partnering with Mubadala Petroleum, a very experienced Gulf of Thailand operator.

MEO looks forward to testing the oil potential of the Rayong Basin. The Operator has mapped 23 prospects and leads with a mean unrisked potential estimated at over 100 MMstb."
