Oz Strike Upgrades Kingia Gas Discovery
Australian Strike Energy September 11 announced a ‘significant’ upgrade at the Kingia sandstone conventional gas discovery at West Erregulla-2, which was announced late last month.
“Analysis of the logs, use of offset comparison data and cut-offs, in conjunction with advanced wireline tools has indicated an increase in net pay of 17 metres, which brings the total net pay to 58 metres using the cutoffs from the nearby Waitsia field,” Strike said in a statement.
The West Erregulla-2 campaign is taking place within EP469 in the North Perth Basin in Western Australia. Strike is the operator and the holder of a 50% joint venture interest, and Warrego Energy is the holder of the other 50%.
“The Kingia gas discovery exhibits characteristics of one of the highest quality gas finds onshore Australia. With 58 metres of net pay, this makes West Erregulla 2 the thickest net column seen in any Kingia penetration within the basin to date which is host to the historic Waitsia gas field,” managing director Stuart Nicholls said. “The high reservoir pressures and excellent permeabilities are supportive of a significant recoverable gas resource with gas compositions in-line with the neighbouring Waitsia field,”
