- Drilling planned for Qtr 3 2018 to test gas target in the north-west of PL 231 identified from seismic reprocessing.
- Phase 2 (Southern Area) seismic data reprocessing expected to be completed during Qtr 3 2018.
As previously announced, the Phase 1 (Northern Area) seismic reprocessing undertaken by the Company identified a new potential gas pool located in the north-west of PL 231 (North-West Gas Prospect). The North-West Gas Prospect appears to be hosted within the Cattle Creek Gas Sands and appears to consist of multiple zones to a depth of approximately 500 metres.
The Company is currently preparing to undertake drilling to test the North-West Gas Prospect. Reid's Dome North-West-1 will be drilled into the target zones. If gas is detected, the well will be logged and tested to provide information on the flow and permeability characteristics of the formation. The drilling of this well will complete the Company's sole funding obligations under the Joint Operating Agreement for PL 231.
Drilling is expected to be undertaken during the 3rd Quarter of 2018.
The Phase 2 (Southern Area) reprocessing of historic seismic in the Southern Area of the permit is also expected to be completed in the 3rd Quarter of 2018. Seismic data in the Southern Area is more limited than that available for the Northern Area.
In addition, the Company is continuing its investigation of options to monetise the gas identified in the Cattle Creek Formation in the Central North gas pool centred around Primero-1, as well as any new gas located in the North-West Prospect.

About State Gas Limited
State Gas Limited (ASX:GAS) is a Queensland-based developer of the Reid's Dome gas field (PL 231), which includes both CSG and conventional gas, originally discovered in 1954 during oil drilling prior to the existence of a pipeline network and an east coast gas market. The Reid's Dome field is located in the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland on the apex of the Springsure-Sericold Anticline. State Gas is sole Operator and 80%-owner (transitioning to 100%) of PL 231, which is well-located 30 kilometres southwest of Rolleston, approximately 47 kilometres from the Queensland Gas Pipeline.
