Woodside Makes Gas Discovery at Pyxis-1 Exploration Well in Permit WA-34-L

Woodside Petroleum Ltd. announced Wednesday that the Pyxis-1 exploration well in production license WA-34-L offshore Western Australia has intersected approximately 60.7 feet (18.5 meters) of net gas within the Jurassic sandstone target.

The well reached a total depth of 10,981 feet (3347 meters). Wireline logging has confirmed the discovery through the recovery of gas samples to surface and establishment of a gas pressure gradient.

Woodside Executive Vice President Global Exploration Philip Loader said: “Given its location, this successful exploration outcome offers future tie-back potential to Woodside’s existing Pluto infrastructure.”

Pyxis-1 is located in Production Licence WA-34-L, within Western Australia’s Dampier Sub-Basin and is located approximately 9.3 miles (15 kilometers) north of Woodside’s producing Pluto Gas Field infrastructure.

Woodside Burrup Pty. Ltd. is the operator and 90 percent equity owner of WA-34-L. Kansai Electric Power Australia Pty. Ltd. and Tokyo Gas Pluto Pty. Ltd. each hold 5 percent equity.
