Real Energy Suspends Taramara-1 Ops in Queensland Due to Wet Weather

Real Energy Corp. Ltd., a Cooper Basin-focused oil and gas exploration company, indicated Monday that operations at the Tamarama-1 well in ATP972P in Queensland, Australia has been suspended during the weekend due to wet weather conditions.

The company managed to clean out most of the sand volume in the tubing string in a coil tubing operation and a bailing operation with a slick line unit has been carried out in order to clear the remaining sand volume above the isolation ball.

"The bailing operation has been suspended on a temporary basis during the weekend due to wet weather conditions. This operation will resume once the site becomes accessible," Real Energy said in a press release.

The firm said the Tamarama-1 well has been able to flow back some frac fluids after the recent fracture stimulation operations, but the clean-up flow was hindered by some obstruction in the tubing, likely caused by an isolation ball stuck in the tubing string. Once the ball is retrieved or dislodged, the clean-up flow operations would be more effective in order for the company to undertake the post-frac flow tests.
