Glenaras drilling begins
GALILEE Energy’s Easternwell Rig 101 in the eastern Galilee Basin has commenced drilling operations, with the Glenaras 10 well spudding on 23 March.
The milestone marks the beginning of the Glenaras gas project – multi-lateral pilot program.
A vertical test hole will test the various seams and identify the optimal coal target for the lateral wells and then be plugged back with three separate lateral wells to be drilled into the target coal seam.
Galilee said it would drill three lateral wells and conduct a production testing pilot with the potential to ultimately convert a large portion of the 5314 petajoules (PJ) of 3C resources to reserves, and deliver up to 73 PJ per annum into the under supplied east coast gas market.
