The Vali-3 well was spudded on 9 June 2021 and is currently at 2,377 metres in the top of the Toolachee Formation. As with earlier wells in the Vali Field, no safety incidents have occurred during the drilling of Vali3 to date.

While drilling, gas shows were observed in the mid-Nappamerri Formation. In addition, oil shows were observed in the Murta, McKinlay, Namur, Westbourne, Birkhead and Hutton formations.

The primary objective of Vali-3 is to appraise the extent of the deeper Patchawarra Formation gas accumulation discovered in Vali-1 ST1 and confirmed in Vali-2. Total depth of Vali-3 is expected to be reached over the coming week.
