Waitsia-3 flows gas at 50 MMscf/d from Kingia Sandstone
AWE Ltd has begun flow testing the Waitsia-3 well to further appraise the conventional Waitsia gas discovery in Production Licences L1/L2 in the onshore Perth Basin, Western Australia.
The zone being flow tested is the Kingia Sandstone, where a 42 metre interval (3,248 metres to 3,290 metres Measured Depth Below Rotary Table) has been perforated.
The well flowed gas at an instantaneous maximum rate of 50 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) and an average of 49.5 MMscf/d on an 80/64 inch choke at ~1,929 psig flowing well head pressure over a 2.6 hour period.
AWE's CEO and Managing Director, David Biggs, said: "This is another extremely positive result and demonstrates once more the outstanding conventional reservoir properties of the Waitsia field. This result also provides further confidence in the field deliverability as we move toward a Final Investment Decision for Stage 2 of the Waitsia gas project."
