WestSide Spuds CSG Well in ATP 769P, Australia

WestSide Corporation announced that drilling has commenced on the Thisit 01 exploration well 18km north west of Moura. 

Joint venture partner QGC is the operator of the well which is in the southern part of ATP 769P along strike from the Meridian SeamGas CSG gas fields and 30km north of the existing Paranui pilot.

Thisit 01 spudded on 27 August 2013 and Ensign’s 959 rig is now drilling ahead toward a total depth of approximately 1,500 metres.

The well, which has been designed to intersect the Permian age Baralaba Coal Measures, will be drilled and cased to approximately 1,200 metres and then cored to the final total depth.

The well will be geophysically logged, followed by a series of permeability tests on selected seams.

The well, which is expected to take approximately 14 days to drill and test, will then be plugged and abandoned in accordance with best practice.

Data from the well will enable the joint venturers to start evaluating the CSG potential of the surrounding area while the results of a 2D seismic survey being conducted by joint venture partner QGC will lead to a greater understanding of the structure and potential of the Baralaba Coal seams across the entire tenement.
