My preference would be to use two Capture Groups with one Search using Regular Expression action, since you probably want to use each Reference# separately.
Assuming the Reference numbers are defined by a Regex Word, then this Regex should work:
For details, see https://regex101.com/r/BDK5LZ/1/
If you want a broader definition of Reference number that must start with a RegEx word character, but then can be anything other than a SPACE, then this would work:
(?i)reference.+?(\w[^ ]+).*\R.+?reference.+?(\w[^ \n\r]+)
