Drilling Continues at Etty-1 Well in ATP 855 in Cooper-Eromanga Basin
Icon Energy Limited revealed Wednesday that the Etty-1 well in ATP 855 in the Cooper-Eromanga Basin in Queensland, Australia has reached a depth of 8,743 feet (2,665 meters) in the Nappamerri Group. Intermediate 9.625 inch casing is being run in the hole to a prognosed depth of 8,727 feet (2,660 meters) and the rig will then prepare to drill ahead in 8.5 hole.
Etty-1 is specifically targeting the shale and basin-centred gas potential of the Permian Formations from the top Toolachee to top Patchawarra and is programmed to reach a total depth of 12,467 feet (3,800 meters). The well will be cased and suspended for fracture stimulation and production testing to assess the deliverability potential of the unconventional gas play.
