Transerv Energy announced Monday that a sustained gas flow and a continuous flare have been achieved from the Warro-6 well in Western Australia during an initial clean-up phase.
While the flow rate has yet to be measured, the early-stage result is considered to be a significant development in Transerv’s strategy to establish Warro as a major economic gas project and a strong player in WA’s gas market. Warro, located in WA’s mid-west, is Australia’s largest undeveloped onshore gas field with resources of 11.6 trillion cubic feet of gas in place, according to a Transerv statement.
The gas flow follows the successful reservoir stimulation program completed at Warro-6 last week. Reservoir stimulation at the Warro-5 well, which was drilled with Warro-6 as part of the current two-well program, was suspended when proppant from the initial stimulation phase back filled into the borehole. The Warro 5 borehole has now been cleaned out and is ready for further reservoir stimulation work to complete the planned program. Long term flow testing for both wells is expected to start in mid-January.
Transerv Managing Director Stephen Keenihan commented in a company statement:
“These findings are important for future wells because the stimulatioon costs can be reduced and the gas-bearing zones of interest can be targeted precisely.
“These two wells have already doubled the Warro Contingent Resource and the early flow of gas at Warro-6 provides further evidence that this major gas resource could be an attractive economic undertaking.”
