Exoma: Nora-1 Well Completed (Australia)

Exoma Nora-1 Well Completed

Exoma Energy Limited announced the Nora-1 exploration core well in ATP 991P was drilled to a total depth of 1498 metres.

The well cored a 217 metre section of Betts Creek and Aramac coal measures. A total of 15 coal core samples were put on desorption testing to measure gas content. Preliminary analysis indicates a lower than expected gas content.

The well also encountered a 17 metre section of Toolebuc shale. The section was control drilled and chip samples were recovered for laboratory testing to measure oil content and thermal maturity.

The well has been suspended as a water monitoring bore.

The EDA #2 drill rig has been released to move to the next well, Wardoo-1. The well locations are shown on the attached map.

Following completion of Wardoo-1, the EDA #2 drill rig will be released as the northern CSG drilling programme for 2012 will then be complete. EDA#1 drill rig will continue operating in ATP 1005P and ATP1008P as indicated on the attached map.

Exoma has a 50% beneficial interest in both ATP 991P and the Nora-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.
