Santos Ltd reports that the John Brookes-1/ST-1 exploration well in permit WA-214-P located in the Carnarvon Basin is currently logging at a depth of 3355 metres having logged previously at 3042 metres. Progress for the week is 313m.
Preliminary interpretation of the first run of wireline logs and related core and pressure data indicates the presence of an 80 metre gas column in the Top Barrow Formation between 2800 metres and 2900 metres. Consideration will be given to testing this interval after the well reaches its programmed TD of 3800 metres after evaluation of a second objective reservoir in the Late Jurassic.
The participating interests in WA-214-P are:
- Mobil (Operator) 35.00%
- Apache 20.00%
- Santos Group 45.00%*
*AEC International is earning a 25% interest in the block from Santos pending registration of Farmout documentation.
