Carnarvon Provices Update on Dorado-2 Well

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/21/2019, Location: Not categorized

JV partner Carnarvon Petroleum has provided an update on the drilling of the Santos-operated Dorado-2 well. Since the last report the 12-1/4 hole has been drilled, 9-5/8 casing has been set and cemented in place, and the 8-1/2 hole has been drilled to the coring point of approx. 3,935 metres Measured Depth.

Santos is preparing to commence coring across the Caley and Baxter members. The plan is to acquire around 200 metres of whole bore core across the Caley and Baxter members before continuing drilling, with Logging While Drilling ('LWD') tools,to planned total depth ('TD') of around 4,500 metres. Once the well has been drilled to TD, the plan is to run Wireline Logging Tools across the relevant reservoir sections.

Due to the nature of coring operations, no information will be available to the joint venture during the coring process.

Dorado-2 is the first appraisal well of the Dorado oil and gas field which was discovered in the latter half of last year (see ASX announcements released 18 July, 24 July, 8 August and 20 August 2018). For detailed well objectives refer to ASX announcement released on 3 May 2019.

Dorado-1 discovered hydrocarbon bearing reservoirs in the Caley, Baxter, Crespin and Milne Members of the Lower Keraudren Formation.

The Dorado-2 well is located approx. 160km north-northeast of Port Hedland in the Bedout Sub-basin. Drilling is in approx. 95 metres water depth with the Dorado-2 location being around 2.2 km away from the Dorado-1 discovery location.

Dorado is located in WA-437-P in which Carnarvon holds a 20% interest.
