Victoria Petroleum NL has been advised today by the operator, Origin Energy Limited that the oil appraisal/development well Jingemia-8, located in the onshore Perth Basin Production Licence L14, was at 0600 hours Western Standard Time (WST) today at 2,565 metres and preparing to run wire line logs to evaluate the drill indicated Dongara Sandstone oil reservoir of 31 metres from 2,478 to 2,509 metres, approximately 34 metres above the Jingemia Oil Field original oil water contact.

Jingemia-8 is located approximately 23 kilometres south of the township of Dongara and 90 metres south of the Jingemia-1 surface location. The primary target is the late Permian Dongara Sandstone, the main oil-producing reservoir in the Jingemia, Hovea and Eremia oil fields.

Jingemia-8 is designed to intersect the Dongara Sandstone as near as possible to the structural crest of the Jingemia oil field, and up dip from existing Jingemia wells. Commenting on the drilling of the Jingemia-8 appraisal/development well, Victoria Petroleum N.L. Managing Director, John Kopcheff said: “Victoria Petroleum is pleased to be participating in the drilling of Jingemia-8.”

“The successful drilling of this well as indicated from the drilling results, but required to be now confirmed by wire line logging and its completion for production should enable production at the Jingemia Oil Field to achieve a targeted gross field production level of 4,000 barrels of oil per day to capitalise on the current high oil prices of US$70+/bbl.”

“Based on the seismic 3D mapping of the Jingemia Structure and the Jingemia Oil Field production history, the Jingemia Oil Field is interpreted to have the potential to contain in the range of 4 to 8 million barrels of recoverable oil, subject to further development drilling.”

Participants in Production Licence L14 and Jingemia-8 are:
Victoria Petroleum Offshore Pty Ltd 5.000%
Origin Energy Developments Pty Ltd (Operator) 49.189%
ARC Energy Limited 44.141%
