Transerv Energy has revealed that its Warro onshore gas field in Western Australia could be bigger than first thought.
The well remains in gas at its total depth of 14,507 feet, which reinforces the field’s potential of 8-10 trillion cubic feet of gas in place and suggests further resources could be present, said Transerv.
The Warro-5ST well will now be suspended in preparation for stimulation and testing.
Transerv executive director Stephen Keenihan, said: “The results are very strong and increase the economic potential of Warro significantly.
“As well as the presence of thick, gas-filled sands in the southern part of the field, the fact that the well was still in gas at total depth, pointing to additional, deeper, reserve potential, shows the potential for the Warro field to be even larger than previously thought.”
“These results are highly promising.”
Keenihan said further testing needs to be carried out to determine the full commercial significance of the well.
Warro-5ST is located approximately 3.5 km from previous wells and represents a substantial step-out that has significantly extended the proven extent of the gas field.
Transerv stated that the Warro-6 well, located approximately 3km northwest of Warro-5ST, should commence drilling in the first week of October.
