The reservoir section was encountered on prognosis and is 34 meters updip from Dongara-12, which was the previous high well in the North Block of the Dongara Field.
Rig 11 will now be moved to drill Dongara 33 which is a further Arranoo Sandstone development well.
Executive Director's comment:
"The completion of the Dongara 34 well will allow us to produce the remaining reserves of gas in the Dongara Sandstone pool in the North Block of the Dongara Field. The surface location of the well is adjacent to the Dongara 24 and Dongara 31/32 wells which will allow its early production to the Dongara plant. The Dongara 33 well will substantially complete the development program of the gas reserves of the Arranoo Pool. The rig program from that point will include oil exploration and development, and appraisal of the Elegans gas pool. The order of drilling of the wells will depend on joint venture and regulatory approvals and the completion of technical evaluation of the Denison 3D seismic data."
ARC Energy holds a 100% interest in Dongara 34.
