AWE Limited, an independent ASX-listed energy company, announced that the Waitsia-4 appraisal well has reached Total Depth (TD) of 3,744 m Measured Depth below Rotary Table (MDRT), and preparations are now being made to begin a wireline logging program.
According to news release, the well will be logged and, if the results are positive, it will be completed as a production well and a flow test may be performed. The Total Depth was achieved in the Holmwood Shale after successfully intersecting all primary targets.
“Elevated gas shows were encountered in multiple zones in the Kingia and High Cliff intervals and their significance will be evaluated during the wireline logging phase,” said AWE Limited. “Good gas shows were also encountered in the Irwin River Coal Measures, a secondary target.”
Waitsia-4, which was spudded in July 10 2017, is designed to appraise the gas potential in the eastern extension of the Waitsia Field. It is the last appraisal well planned for the Waitsia field in 2017.
