New Discovery One of Cooper Basin's Strongest Gas Flows - Beach JV

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/7/2006, Location: Not categorized

One of the strongest gas flows recorded in the Cooper Basin area of South Australia has been achieved overnight on a new wildcat well drilled by Beach Petroleum Limited and its joint venture partner, Great Artesian Oil and Gas Limited. Beach Petroleum announced a gas flow of 11 million cubic feet a day from a drill stem test of the Patchawarra Formation on the Middleton-1 discovery well 50 kilometres west of Moomba.

The flow - from a 10 metre interval between 2653 and 2663 metres depth - was through a choke size of 5/8” at the very strong flowing pressure of 1,170 psi. The Company said the tested sands were interpreted to have approximately seven metres of net gas pay. The joint venture believes that between three and nine metres of additional gas pay is likely in other sands.

The Middleton well is just six kilometres northeast of the Santos-operated Raven gas field and eight kilometres southeast of the Great Artesian-operated Smegsy gas field, only commissioned in recent days. The discovery follows on from Beach’s recently drilled wildcat discovery, Udacha-1 itself only 5 kilometres to the northeast. Mr Nelson said the close proximity of the Middleton, Udacha, Smegsy and Raven fields was highly indicative of the region’s gas potential and fell within Beach Petroleum’s exploration model of pushing westwards from Moomba into the area’s under-explored petroleum acreage.
