Offshore staff

PERTH, Australia – Drilling is under way on the Outtrim East-1 well on Australia’s North West Shelf.

The location is in the offshore WA-155-P(1) permit, operated by Quadrant Energy.

According to partner Carnarvon Petroleum, the main objective is to prove additional hydrocarbon bearing sands to the north and east of the hydrocarbon reservoir seen at the Outtrim-1 oil discovery.

The well is due to be drilled to an MD of around 1,300 m (4,265 ft), just above the Pyrenees formation which was oil-bearing in the Outtrim-1 well, 1 km (0.6 mi) away.

Following coring, the final section of the well will be drilled to a TD of 1,440 m (4,724 ft).

Carnarvon expects to be able to update recoverable volumes for the Outtrim and Outtrim East structures in a few months, following the receipt of laboratory tests.
