State Gas Ramps Up Output in Queensland
Brisbane-based junior State Gas on September 11 said that gas flow rates at its Nyanda-4 and Serocold-1 wells continued to build, with the Nyanda-4 well flowing gas at a rate of 128,000 ft3/day.
The company has been investigating the potential for coal bed methane (CBM) development at its 100%-owned Reid’s Dome gas project (PL231) in Queensland. It is undertaking the first phase of an exploration and appraisal programme.
The first phase has confirmed CBM across more than 12 km within PL 231 through drilling and testing of three wells, Nyanda-4, Serocold-1 and Aldinga East-1A. State Gas is currently production testing the Nyanda-4 well in the south of the permit and Serocold-1 in the centre.
Gas production at the Serocold-1 well is also rising, the company said. “The gradual increase in flow rates is encouraging and bodes well for the future,” it said.
