Senex Energy: Monthly Drilling Report, May 2018

During the month of May, Senex completed drilling on the Gemba-1 gas exploration well in the South Australian Cooper Basin, concluding the drilling program for FY18.

Gemba-1 gas exploration well (PEL 516: Senex 100% and operator)South-west Cooper Basin, South Australia

The Gemba-1 gas exploration well is located on the south-west margin of the Allunga Trough, a proven gas fairway, approximately 37 kilometres south west of the Moomba Oil and Gas Processing Facility (see figure 1).

Designed to evaluate the gas potential of the low-permeability intra-Patchawarra sandstones, the well successfully intersected gas in the target zones with volumes ahead of pre-drill expectations. The well was extended to a total depth of 2,795 metres (from 2,685 metres) given encouraging gas shows in the Dullingari group, representing a potential new gas play.

Senex is currently developing a fracture stimulation and testing program for the evaluation of Gemba-1, targeted for early FY19.
