State Gas spuds Rougemont-2 well
State Gas has spudded Rougemont-2, the second well in its Rolleston-West gas project in central Queensland, it said on May 31.
Rougemont-2 is targeting the gas-bearing Bandanna formation coal measures on the eastern flank of the south-plunging Consuelo Anticline. The coals will provide valuable information about the coalbed methane potential at a range of depths within the project area, it said.
State Gas will determine the thickness and gas content of the coal in the well through sampling the coals and wireline logs. Permeability testing will also be undertaken. “These initial tests should confirm important information about the potential of this area of ATP 2062 and inform preparations for production testing in the future,” the company said.
State Gas is also appraising the potential of the Reid’s Dome gas project in PL231 for development. It undertaking production testing at three coal bed methane wells in the southern area, and one in the central part of the permit.
