The Amungee NW-1H well was drilled to a total measured depth of 3808 m last November, including a 1100 m horizontal section in the ‘B Shale’ interval of the Middle Velkerri formation. The horizontal section was successfully cased and cemented earlier this month and preparations are now being finalised to conduct a multi-stage hydraulic stimulation. The hydraulic stimulation is expected to commence around mid-August and will involve up to 10 stages and will take up to two weeks to complete. This will then be followed by an extended production testing programme.
The Beetaloo W-1 well is the fourth of Falcon's fully carried five well 2015-2016 drilling and evaluation programme, the initial phase of a nine well drilling and evaluation programme.
Philip O'Quigley, CEO of Falcon commented:
"The multi-stage hydraulic stimulation of the horizontal section of the Amungee NW-1H well, scheduled to be completed next month, could go a long way towards proving up the resource potential of the Beetaloo Basin.
The Beetaloo W-1 well represents another exciting phase of the exploration programme given that it will be the first well to penetrate the Middle Velkerri member in the south of the basin.
We look forward to updating the market on both of these key operations as information becomes available."
