Strike Energy has finished all drilling and completion activities at its West Erregulla-2 joint venture site in Western Australia.
Since its last update, Strike has successfully perforated the well across the Kingia zone, set the packer and run the production tubing string into West Erregulla 2.
The Easternwell 106 has been released from the well and will demobilise from the West Erregulla site over the next two weeks before the production flow testing package is called out to site.
Strike reported that the flow test is expected to commence in early October and activities will take approximately two weeks to gather flow and pressure data from the reservoir.
“The release of the rig marks the completion of the West Erregulla drilling program. Over the past several months Strike has achieved multiple Australian firsts in drilling and these achievements demonstrate Strike’s high level of competence as an upstream operator,” Strike managing director Stuart Nicholls said.
“The West Erregulla 2 well has made three individual conventional gas discoveries, has found the deepest hydrocarbons ever seen in Australia and has now set up the company for continued success along the Wagina and Kingia High Cliff geological trends.”
Strike is the operator and holder of a 50 per cent joint venture interest in West Erregulla site, with Warrego Energy the holder of the other 50 per cent interest.
