Two wells have previously been drilled on the broad Worrior structure, both downdip of the crest. Both previous wells (Pando #1 & Karbine #1) reported strong live oil shows but neither produced oil on test. Both wells demonstrated good reservoir characteristics in the oil show sands. The Worrior 1 well tested the crest of the structure for structurally trapped oil.
This is the first of a four-well program for Stuart. The other three wells to be drilled are Kiwi 1, Delta 1 and Arwon 1.
Participants in the Worrior 1 well are Stuart Petroleum as operator with 70/5 and Cooper Energy NL with the remaining 30%.
