Activities Update On Mirage Oil Field, PEL 115, SA Cooper Basin

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/29/2006, Location: Not categorized

Victoria Petroleum NL as operator for the Mirage Oil Field, advise that preparations for the completion of the Mirage-3 and Mirage-4 oil wells to boost production at the Mirage Field in PEL 115 in South Australia are well advanced. BJ Services have been contracted to perform fracture stimulation of the Murta reservoir sands and that the equipment to perform these operations is in the process of being mobilized from New Zealand and is expected to be on site in South Australia on the 20th July 2006.

Following the stimulation treatment of the wells, they will be placed on pump and oil will be produced via flowlines to the central production facility located at Mirage-1. The pumping units which have been manufactured in China arrived in Australia on the 23rd June 2006, and are being transported to the Mirage field area for installation once the wells are stimulated. Installation of the flowlines will commence on the 10th July 2006, subject to final regulatory approvals being received.

Commenting on the operations, Victoria Petroleum NL’s Managing Director John Kopcheff said, “We are pleased that the development of the field is progressing satisfactorily. The fracture stimulations will enhance the ability of the Murta reservoir to flow oil. This stimulation technique has been used successfully by other operators in the Cooper Basin, including SANTOS who now routinely fracture stimulate their Murta wells, to enhance production from this thin but highly productive reservoir. Should the stimulation work prove satisfactory, as expected, then it is likely that additional stimulation will be carried out on the remaining wells in the Mirage area.”
