Senex Get Good Results from Indy-1 CSG Well
Senex Energy has said that drilling and testing results for the Indy-1 coal seam gas (CSG) exploration well have indicated good coal and carbonaceous shale thickness with good permeability.
Indy-1 was drilled to investigate the CSG potential of the Walloon Coal Measures in the north western region of the Queensland Surat Basin, approximately 36.5 kilometres south of Injune.
The well was spudded on 24 July 2012 and reached a total depth of 350.6 metres. Almost 275 metres of core was collected, with 10 coal and carbonaceous shale core samples currently being analysed for gas content, composition, saturation and other attributes.
During the coring of the Walloon Coal Measures 7.3 metres of net coal in the Juandah and Taroom Coal Measures was intersected along with 5.3 metres of net gas bearing carbonaceous shale.
In addition, four successful drill stem tests were conducted over intervals in both the Juandah and Taroom Coal Measures to evaluate the potential for gas deliverability, with good permeability recorded.
The rig has now moved to the Indy-2 location and spudded on 6 August 2012.
Senex holds a 45% interest in ATP 771P and the neighbouring ATP 593P and is Operator.
