Sydney, 16 April 2018: Cooper Basin focused oil & gas exploration company Real Energy Corporation Limited (ASX: RLE) (“Real Energy”) advises that Tamarama-2 well spudded at 3.00 pm Friday 13 April 2018.
The well was drilled to the depth of 710 metres RT (below Rotary Table) and surface casing was run and cemented to 708 metres RT. Current operations as at 6.00 am on 16th April 2018, are pressure testing the Blow Out Preventers prior to drilling out the production hole.

Tamarama-2 well is part of a two-well gas appraisal program designed to prove commercial gas flow. If the wells are successful, Real Energy will look to establish pilot production out of the wells and look to connect flow lines so that sales gas can then be supplied into Australia's East Coast gas market.
Real Energy is implementing the Research & Development it has gathered from the drilling, testing and fracture stimulation from Tamarama-1, and this knowledge and methods are being used to in the drilling program for a deviated well design suitable for multi-stage fracs for both wells.
These wells represent a major value catalyst to potentially convert Real Energy's contingent resources into reserves, and ultimately into production. The other aim is to start proving up the delivery of the basin centred gas play within ATP927 which has a prospective resource estimated by De Golyer & Mac Naugton to be 13.7 Trillion Cubic Feet of gas initially in place.
