State Gas Limited (ASX:GAS) is pleased to advise that, as anticipated, the Primero West-1 well at the Reid's Dome Gas Project (PL 231) encountered gas overnight at 134 metres within the Cattle Creek Formation.

Based on the Company's seismic reprocessing efforts during 2018, the Primero West-1 well was located and designed to test the Cattle Creek Formation within PL 231 and is 100%-funded by State Gas Limited in accordance with the requirements of the Joint Venture Operating Agreement.

Primero West-1 is located approximately 650m southwest of AOE-1 and is testing the southwestern extent of the Cattle Creek gas sand discovered in AOE-1 in 1955.

As previously advised, at completion of drilling, logging and flow-testing of Primero West-1, the well will be plugged and abandoned on the basis that any full-field development of the Cattle Creek Formation within PL 231 will require additional drilling and a focused seismic program to optimise the locations of production wells.

Following completion of activities at Primero West-1, Silver City Drilling Rig-25 will be mobilised to the Nyanda-4 site approximately 13.5 kilometres to the south within PL 231.

The Nyanda-4 well has a planned depth of 1,000 metres and is a jointly-funded well in accordance with the terms of the Joint Venture Operating Agreement. In accordance with the terms of the Agreement, State Gas is only responsible to meet its 60% of the costs.

State Gas Limited is Sole Operator and 60% owner of the Reid's Dome Gas Project (PL-231).
