Innamincka Projects
Santos Limited mobilised a rig and commenced drilling at Yarrow on Thursday 15 September 2022 with a total depth of 2748m reached on Saturday 24 September 2022. Red Sky holds 20% working interest in six PRLs (14, 17, 18, 180, 181, 182) at the Innamincka Dome in the Cooper Basin and is free carried through the drilling of this current well up to a cap of $3 million.

Yarrow has been estimated to have a 2C contingent resource of 18BCF. A further 20BCF 2C of associated gas is estimated at the Flax oil field 8km to the south east of Yarrow (see ROG ASX announcement 6 May 2019). Yarrow 3 is an appraisal gas well targeting the Tirrawarra sandstone as primary objective and the Patchawarra formation as secondary objective.

A pipeline of approximately 18km would potentially be built to tie into the grid at Napowie to the south of the Yarrow gas field.
