MEO Australia Prepares to Plug and Abandon Blackwood-2 Well

MEO Australia said that the Ensco 104 jack up drilling rig had completed the Blackwood-2 production test and is preparing to plug and abandon the well as planned.

The production test was carried out across the interval 3,234m – 3,254mMDRT. The top of this 20m interval is approximately 9m below the clear hydrocarbon bearing zone in Blackwood-1 (based on MDT data).

No flow was recorded on testing indicating low reservoir permeability.

The drilling of Blackwood-2 is an obligation under the NT/P68 Farm-in Agreement dated 17th May 2011 between Eni Australia and MEO. Under the FIA and subsequent amendment, MEO’s 50% participating interest share of the costs of the well are being carried.

MEO’s CEO and MD Jurgen Hendrich commented on the announcement: “Blackwood-2 was an aggressive step-out well designed to test the possibility of a deeper gas- water-contact than inferred from Blackwood-1 pressure data. The target represented an attractive prospective resource upside that needed to be resolved by appraisal drilling. The production test was conducted over a new, younger reservoir interval than intersected by Blackwood-1, which has been demonstrated to be tight.”
