Gle­naras drilling be­gins

The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS -

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.
