Oz Armour Signs Drilling Contract for Queensland Project

Australian Armour Energy has entered into a contract for the drilling of two development wells for its 100% owned Kincora gas project on the Roma Shelf, south of Roma, Queensland, it said August 19.

“This work programme is a continuation of the 2018-2019 phase 3 growth strategy which includes drilling of new wells and workover and stimulation of existing wells. These activities, together with any necessary further work on the Kincora gas plant, will assist Armour in progressing to its targeted 20 TJ/day gas sales,” it said.

In preparation for drill rig mobilisation, the company has completed the construction of the drill sites in the Myall Creek and Horseshoe fields, in PL511 and PL227 respectively. The wells have been designed to a depth of 2,100 metres (measured depth) and will target liquid-rich, overpressured Permian and Triassic conventional and tight gas sandstones, Armour said. The wells will be drilled consecutively with the first well planned to spud next month.
