Regarding its Champion and Challenger wells, Mosman was looking into "several alternatives" to fund the projects.
Chairman John Barr, said: "The selection of the proposed wells is designed to maximize the potential of Mosman and also deliver the best possible economic outcome.
"Mosman remains fully supportive of its other projects in the portfolio, however, the low cost and strong economics of investing in these wells was a significant factor in deciding the next step for the company."
