Exoma Energy: Alma-1 WellI Reaches Total Depth

Exoma Energy Limited announced the Alma-1 exploration core well was drilled to a total depth of 1302 metres and has been completed for future testing.

The well cored a 217 metre section of Betts Creek and Aramac coal measures. A total of 15 metres of coal samples were put on desorption testing to measure gas content.

In addition chip samples were taken from a 44 metre section of Toolebuc Shale. The shale chips showed signs of hydrocarbons during sampling and will be analysed as part of Exoma’s 2012 shale appraisal program.

The well has been logged, cased and suspended for future permeability testing, which will be conducted later in 2012. The drill rig has been released to move to the next well, Darr-1.

Exoma has a 50% beneficial interest in both ATP 996P and the Alma-1 well. CNOOC Galilee Gas Company Pty Ltd is earning its participating interest by a farmin whereby CNOOC provides the first $50 million of joint venture expenditures on Exoma’s five Galilee Basin ATP’s.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
