Oil find at Ungani Far West 1 well

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

Since the last progress report, the logging and sampling programme has been completed and the well was then drilled ahead to the interpreted top of the Ungani Dolomite reservoir and 5 in. (127mm) casing has been run and cemented to 2327 m. Atlas Rig 2 has now been rigged down and released. Specialist coring rig DDH1 Rig 31 is currently rigging up and will conduct coring operations through the Ungani Dolomite reservoir section.

Interpretation of the completed logging and sampling programme results confirmed the preliminary interpretation of an oil column of at least 14 m of which some five m is net pay in the Anderson Formation. Preliminary field measurements of the samples recovered from the surface indicate the oil has a gravity of 30.5 deg API.

The well is located on an all weather drilling pad approximately one km off the Ungani access road within Production License L21, 97 kms east of Broome and 3.3 kms southwest of Buru Energy’s Ungani Oilfield in the Canning Basin of northwestern Australia.
