Wireline run formation pressure measurement logs indicate that the formation is tight at this location. It is unclear whether the gas encountered in Fossetmaker-1 is in pressure communication with the gas observed in the Echuca Shoals-1 well.
Further study will be required to assess the commercial implications of this result for the Echuca Shoals gas accumulation.
The well is currently being plugged prior to releasing the rig. The well has been drilled at no cost to Nexus pursuant to a farm-in agreement with Shell Development (Australia) Pty Ltd.
Fossetmaker-1 is located approximately 7 kilometers ENE of the Echuca Shoals-1 discovery well and was drilled to evaluate the possible eastern extension of the Echuca Shoals field. Nexus will provide a reassessment of the Echuca Shoals resource potential following a complete technical evaluation incorporating the results of the Fossetmaker-1.
Partners are Nexus Energy WA377P Pty Ltd with 66% and Shell Development (Australia) Pty Ltd with 34%.
