Production Update - Reids Dome
As previously advised, the Company has been investigating the potential for a significant coal seam gas (CSG) resource at its 100% owned Reid's Dome Gas Project (PL231), undertaking Phase 1 of an exploration and appraisal programme to confirm the widespread presence of CSG across PL231. The successful Phase 1 confirmed significant coal seam gas across more than 12 kilometres within PL 231 through drilling and testing of three wells, Nyanda-4, Serocold-1 and Aldinga East-1A. It is currently production testing the Nyanda-4 well in the south of the permit and Serocold-1 in the centre.
Gas production at the Serocold-1 well is also increasing. Previously advised damage to the well bore limited the depth at which the pump could be placed, resulting in approximately 46% of the targeted coal seams below the pump and unlikely contributors to this test1. The gradual increase in flow rates is encouraging and bodes well for the future. Water production at both wells remains low, providing further positive signs for future production from the Reid's Dome CSG field.
