Western Gas provides the following operational update on the drilling of the Sasanof-1 exploration well:
• The marine riser and well control Blow Out Preventer (BOP) have been installed, connecting the Valaris MS-1 rig to the Sasanof-1 High Pressure Wellhead Housing (HPWHH) and the system is currently being pressure and function tested.
• Once complete, the 12-1/4” bottomhole drilling assembly (BHA) will be run in hole to drill out of the 13-3/8” shoe track cement and integrity tests will be conducted.
• This will be followed by drilling of the 12-1/4” target hole section from the current depth of 2072m to an estimated total depth of 2500m TVDBRT.
• The company anticipates drilling through the target reservoir sand section will occur over the weekend.

Further updates will be provided upon the completion of campaign milestones.

The Sasanof Prospect covers an area of up to 400 km2 and is on trend and updip of Western Gas’ liquids rich, low CO2 Mentorc Field. ERCE estimates the Sasanof Prospect to contain a 2U Prospective Resource of 7.2 Tcf gas and 176 Million bbls condensate (P501), with a high case 3U Prospective Resource estimate of 17.8 Tcf gas and 449 Million bbls condensate (P101).

Sasanof is a large, seismic amplitude supported, structural-stratigraphic trap in the high-quality reservoir sands at the top of the Cretaceous top Lower Barrow Group formation on the Barrow Delta within the Exmouth Plateau.

Sasanof-1 will be Western Gas’ first well drilled from its extensive exploration portfolio surrounding the existing Equus Gas Project that contains a discovered resource of 2 Tcf and 42 MMbbl (2C Gaffney Cline2). The Equus Gas Project has a historic exploration drilling success rate of 88%, with 15 discoveries from 17 wells.
