Part of a two-well drilling program, the drilling aims to explore potential gas reserves in the Warro, which is said to be Australia’s biggest undeveloped onshore gas field.

The Warro-5 is planned to be drilled to a total depth of 4,250m using Enerdrill Rig-3.The company selected Warro-5 location using the Warro 3D seismic data. The well will penetrate the field’s reservoir section that is devoid of deep-seated faulting.

The deep-seated faulting is found to be the source of the water, which was identified in the Warro-3 and Warro-4 wells.

An independent study found that the wells will deliver up to 10 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of gas each with existing water results.

The reports also revealed 8-10 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of in-place gas resource with potential recoverable reserves of 3-4 Tcf.

Prior to drilling Warro-6 well, the company plans to case the Warro-5 well from surface to total depth and suspend at the end of drilling operations.

Gas produced from the Warro field is planned to be shipped to markets through the nearby DBNG and Parmelia pipelines.
