While the Company would prefer to commence its programme at Mereenie, if there is a further delay in the ACCC deliberation then the first well to be spudded will be at Palm Valley. Under the timetable the first well should be spudded in 6-8 weeks' time with each well taking slightly more than 30 days. The wells at Mereenie will have a deviated lateral of over one kilometre designed to intersect the natural fractures in the sandstone. None of the wells in the drilling campaign are intended to be fracture stimulated.
