Comet Ridge Spuds Galilee Basin Well Albany-1

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/21/2018, Location: Not categorized

Comet Ridge Limited has announced that Easternwell’s Rig 101 spudded the Albany 1 sandstone appraisal well at 1430 hrs on Saturday 19 May 2018. At 0600 hrs this morning, the rig was drilling ahead at 711 metres in 12-1/4” surface hole and was approaching surface casing point.

The total depth (TD) of the well is estimated to be approximately 2775 metres with drilling operations expected to take approximately 25 days. The Albany 1 surface location is 220 metres to the southwest of the Carmichael 1 well which was drilled in 1995 and flowed gas at low rates from three intervals. Figure 1 below details the position of the Albany 1 well in the Galilee Basin and also the position of well on the structure (inset).

The drilling of Albany 1 will be the first Phase in the farm-out work program. Under this program, Vintage Energy Ltd (“Vintage”) is farming into the sandstone section of the block (the “Deeps”) by funding the first $3.35 million of drilling cost for this first well to earn a 15% interest in the Deeps. Vintage can also fund half of the second phase program which contains further drilling and seismic acquisition in order to acquire a further 15% interest.

Figure 2 below details the basic Albany 1 well design in terms of hole and casing sizes. The upper sections of the well will be drilled with a standard drilling mud to lubricate the drilling bit and lift rock cuttings out of the well. The lowest (reservoir) section of the well will be drilled with nitrogen. This “underbalance” will allow the gas reservoir section to flow at its full potential without risk of damage from drilling mud.
