Carnarvon Petroleum Ltd. disclosed Monday that Quadrant Energy, field operator of the WA-437-P exploration permit in Australia's North West Shelf, has commenced drilling July 9 the Roc-2 well in the block to appraise the Roc gas-condensate discovery in the Caley section.
The firm added that Roc-2 drilling aims to prove a volume above the minimum economic field size and to establish potential flow rates for future development planning, while the secondary goal seeks to explore the hydrocarbon potential of the deeper Milne member.
Quadrant Energy will take around 60 days to drill the Roc-2 well down to a total depth of around 17,224 feet (5,250 meters), including the cutting of 394 feet (120 meters) of core, before an evaluation program, covering wireline logging and flow testing to be carried out over 40 days, is undertaken.
Quadrant Energy has an 80 percent operating interest in WA-437-P exploration permit, with the remaining 20 percent held by Carnarvon Petroleum.
