Mereenie Development Well WM27 Commences
The rig has moved off the recompletions of the four existing wells (WM14, WM15, WM19 and WM20), and these wells are scheduled to be progressively brought back on-line over the coming days.
WM27 is being drilled at a crestal location targeting increased gas production. This well, along with another development well (WM28) and the four recompletions, is intended to return field production capacity back towards 45 TJ/d (100% JV) and produce at least an additional 40 PJ of gas over the lifetime of the field (10 PJ net to Central). This will enable the Mereenie JV to commit to new gas sales into what is anticipated to be an increasingly tight east coast gas market.
