Galilee completes Glenaras 28 well in Queensland
Sydney-listed Galilee Energy has completed the drilling of Glenaras 28, the second well of this year’s programme at the Glenaras gas project in Queensland, the company said on May 16.
Glenaras 28 was drilled to a total depth of 1,038 m and intersected a total of 27 m of coal. Similar to Glenaras 24, the coals exhibited gassy behaviour on the intersection, Galilee said.
The drilling of the well was completed on schedule despite over 50 mm of rain falling on the site and access roads. This unseasonal second rain event has caused further saturation of the area and is the highest rainfall for 30 years in the region for this time of the year, the company said.
The drilling campaign will restart once the unsealed council and access roads have dried sufficiently to allow heavy equipment movement. This is expected to be within the next week, with the weather and current situation being closely monitored and factored into forward planning. Glenaras 27 is the next well to be drilled, the company said.
Galilee in February completed a share placement programme to raise approximately A$11.8mn ($8.5mn) to fund the five-well programme.
