Senex Energy Limited (Senex) to commence drilling of the Silver Star-1 gas exploration well in the South Australian Cooper Basin, targeting material gas volumes. The Silver Star-1 well is expected to cost approximately $15 million and forms part of the work program being progressed by Senex in joint venture with Origin Energy.

Senex Managing Director and CEO Ian Davies said the drilling program reflected its continued commitment to onshore gas exploration and to building an opportunity pipeline capable of delivering significant gas volumes to market. “The Silver Star-1 well is an exciting step in the $252 million Senex and Origin Energy exploration project agreed in 2014 to unlock material high-risk gas acreage in the South Australian Cooper Basin. The areas on which we are focused have multi-Tcf potential, and gas exploration programs such as this are crucial to unlocking more supply for the east coast market,” Mr Davies said.

Silver Star-1 (PEL 638: Senex 53.75% and operator, Origin Energy 33.75% and Planet Gas 12.5%) is the first drilling location in the northern area of Senex’s joint venture with Origin Energy, a staged program targeting material volumes of basin centred and stratigraphic gas in the Patchawarra and Allunga Troughs. Senex is free carried by Origin under the Senex-Origin farm-in arrangement.

Silver Star-1 is a high impact gas exploration well located in the northern Cooper Basin and is expected to be drilled to a depth of approximately 3,600 metres, with a potential lateral section of up to 1,500 metres. The total cost of the well is estimated at approximately $15 million.

The well follows the drilling of Efficient-1 and Ethereal-1 in the southern Cooper Basin, which were both cased and suspended having successfully intersected stratigraphically trapped tight gas in the Permian sandstones. The wells were both fracture stimulated and production tested, with the next step to complete a nitrogen lift test on the Ethereal-1 well to increase gas production.
