During the week, gas shows were encountered in a secondary target - one of the Cretaceous aged carbonate formations.
The well will continue drilling to the next casing point currently programmed at around 14,500 feet (4,420 meters). The possible commercial significance of the gas shows will be determined from interpretation of wire-line logs which will be run prior to the setting of casing.
The primary Hosston target is expected to be reached in mid to late October and the total depth of 21,000 feet (6,400 meters) in mid November.
