Cooper Drills Duster at Turton Well

The Turton exploration well, located in the Cooper basin onshore South Australia, has drilled to a total depth of 1777.5 mRT and wireline logs have been run and interpreted.

During drilling there were no hydrocarbon shows observed in the primary objective (Namur Sandstone) or secondary objectives (Birkhead and Poolowanna Formations) and the evaluation of the wireline logs has confirmed the absence of hydrocarbons in all objective horizons.

The Turton-1 well has been plugged and abandoned as dry hole, and the rig released on June 6, 2011.

The rig is currently moving to the Westall-1 drill site.
