Buru Energy Limited has provided an update on the results of the Ungani North 1 well test.
Since the company’s last report, nitrogen lift operations have been carried out and these have established fluid influx into the well at relatively low rates. The fluid recovered to date is indicative of drilling fluid filtrate from the original drilling operations.
The results need to be fully evaluated before further testing. Consequently, the well will be temporarily suspended while these results are evaluated, and a forward program agreed with the joint venture partners.
The Ungani North 1 well is located approximately 6 km north of the Ungani Production Facility in Western Australia. Buru Energy and Mitsubishi Corporation each have a 50% interest in the well.
