Norwest to Begin Fracture Stimulation at Arrowsmith-2 Well
Norwest Energy is ready to kick off its fracture stimulation exercise for its Arrowsmith-2 well in the Perth Basin. The project is expected to commence in the second half of July.
The company is read for the arrival of the Halliburton equipment in the Perth Basin for the project commencement in the second half of July 2012.
The Arrowsmith-2 campaign will be conducted over six to eight weeks, and will involve fracture stimulation and testing gas flow rates from the following target zones: Kockatea Shale, Carynginia Formation, Irwin River Coal Measures and High Cliff Sandstone.
Once the well has been stimulated, the results from the well testing program will enable Norwest to establish the viability of the various target zones for future shale gas production.
