AWE Sees Improved Gas Flow at Senecio-2 Unconventional Well
AWE Limited’s Senecio-2 well, a part of the tight gas hydraulic fracture stimulation program being undertaken in the North Perth Basin, Western Australia has shown an increased gas flow rate.
A stabilised flow rate of 1.35 MMscf/d was recorded and the test produced a total of 4.65 MMscf of gas and approximately 65 bbls of crude oil/condensate over the flow period. This was up from the 1 million cubic feet of gas per day the well had flowed in September.
The Senecio-2 well, which had been fracture stimulated over a five metre perforation interval in the Dongara and Wagina tight sandstone formation, was successfully flow tested for more than 40 hours through the well test separator package in September 2012.
AWE has a 50% interest in Senecio-2 while Origin Energy holds the remaining 50%.
