Karoon Test Flows 30.2 Mmscf/d of gas at Boreas-1
Testing of Karoon Gas Australia Ltd’s Boreas-1 exploration well in the Browse basin has resulted in a maximum flow rate of 30.2 Mmscf/d.
The production test will continue for approximately five days and will include shut-in and flowing periods, surface and down hole sampling of reservoir fluids and production logging.
The primary purpose of the test is to assess the overall deliverability of the primary reservoir underpinning the Greater Poseidon Trend. These initial test flows are encouraging for the remaining test program at Boreas-1.
Well data from Boreas-1 will be integrated into the existing data recovered from Poseidon-1, Poseidon-2, and Kronos-1 along with the Poseidon 3D seismic data to further define the size and composition of the Greater Poseidon Trend.
The next two wells to be drilled are Zephyros-1 then Proteus-1. Zephyros-1 will test the flank of a fault block 9km west of the Kronos-1 well. Proteus-1, 15km east of Zephyros-1 will test a fault block on the eastern flank of the Greater Poseidon Trend.
