Dorado-1 Rig Update
The rig is currently situated near the proposed Dorado-1 drilling location, at no cost to Carnarvon, and is waiting for swell conditions to subside to enable the rig to move onto the drilling location.
Once on location the legs will be jacked down onto the seafloor and the rig prepared for commencement of drilling.
The Company is simultaneously drilling the Phoenix South-3 well in the adjacent WA-435-P permit using a semi-sub rig. This well is currently setting casing at 3,733 metres (measured depth) before drilling ahead to the Caley formation target at around 5,300 metres.
Refer to previous announcements available on Carnarvon's website www.carnarvon.com.au for details of the significant gas and condensate being targeted by this well.
