Drillsearch Energy Ltd. confirmed that extended production testing (EPT) has commenced at the Coolawang wet gas discovery in License 106B in the Western Wet Gas Fairway in Australia's Cooper Basin.
Drillsearch holds a 50% interest in the license, and Beach Energy, operator, holds 50% interest.
Separate EPTs will be conducted over the two wet gas pay intervals identified from the Coolawang-1 wet gas discovery well, with the current test program planned to continue for up to 20 days.
Drillsearch’s managing director, Brad Lingo, said, "The start of production testing at Coolawang marks the beginning of our three well EPT program at the Western Wet Gas Fairway. With Haslam and Southend to follow, the JV will use the data collected from the EPTs to determine future development plans in the wet gas fairway."
The well encountered good hydrocarbon fluorescence and gas shows in sands throughout the Patchawarra formation and Tirrawarra sandstones. Wireline logging coupled with drillstem testing and formation pressure acquisition program highlighted two likely wet gas pay zones in the Lower Patchawarra formation similar to those discovered in the Canunda and Brownlow wet gas fields.
