Origin Energy advises the following clean up flow results from the appraisal/development wells Jingemia 8, located in L14 and operated by Origin Energy, and Hovea 12, located in L1 and operated by ARC Energy Limited.

Jingemia 8

The well was perforated over a 21.5 meter interval (measured depth) at the top of the Dongara Sandstone reservoir and a clean up flow recorded. This test was conducted on a 1 inch choke at which a flow of 3,520 barrels of oil per day was measured. The wellhead flowing pressure at this choke size was 148 psi. As a permanent flowline has been installed, the well is now being commissioned and tied to the Jingemia production facility.

Hovea 12

The well was perforated over an 8 meter interval (measured depth) at the top of the Dongara Sandstone reservoir and a clean up flow recorded. This was followed by test production through the test separator at the Hovea Field. The initial test flow was conducted using a choke size of 1 inch at which a flow rate of 3230 barrels of oil per day was measured. The well head flowing pressure at this choke size was 162 psi. The well will now be put on production through a temporary flow line to the Hovea production facility until installation of the permanent flow line, which is expected to take approximately two weeks.

Paul Zealand, General Manager Exploration & Production comments:

"These are excellent initial results for both Joint Ventures at the commencement of the current Perth Basin drilling program. Both the Jingemia 8 and Hovea 12 wells will be tested over the next two weeks to establish sustainable production levels in conjunction with existing wells. The drilling program will continue with the Century 18 drilling rig having commenced at the Eremia 5 location yesterday. This will be followed by the first of the programmed Perth Basin exploration wells".
