Currently the rig is drilling ahead with 12.25 inch Top hole at a measured depth of below 1,312 feet (400 meters).

Gaudi-1 is the second well in a program of unconventional gas exploration wells operated by Central (via subsidiary Merlin Energy Pty Ltd in partnership with Total) and is being drilled using Enerdrill Rig 2.
