Senex Energy has reported increasing natural gas production at the Roma North site in Queensland, reaching 11 terajoules a day, up 40 per cent since the end of the June quarter.
Daily gas production at Roma North continues to increase in line with existing forecasts, according to Senex.
In September 2019, Senex completed the first 10 wells of its 50-well Roma North drilling campaign, immediately north of the existing production wells.
These wells are now online and producing into the 16 terajoule a day Roma North gas processing facility.
Senex managing director and chief executive Ian Davies said the company was encouraged by Roma North’s production performance, with 40 wells now in production and 40 wells still to be drilled.
“In addition to the 258 petajoules of 2P reserves in Roma North, Senex holds a further 210 petajoules of 2P reserves in the broader Western Surat acreage, providing material future expansion opportunities,” Davies said.
“Combined with the commencement of gas production at Project Atlas, Senex is firmly establishing itself as a material east coast gas producer.”
Senex and its partners continue to meet their development milestones for the Roma North and Project Atlas work programs.
They are targeting a Surat Basin gas production rate of 18 petajoules a year by the end of the 2021 financial year, with low cost expansion options.
