State Gas to drill new horizontal well in Queensland

Sydney-listed State Gas on September 12 said it will soon drill a new horizontal well, Rougemont-3, in Queensland.

Rougemont-3 will drill two laterals horizontally to intersect with the Rougemont-2 vertical well. The laterals, starting at approximately 290 m true vertical depth and 320 m true vertical depth respectively, will cut through the two primary coalbeds identified in the Rougemont-2 well, State Gas said. 

Silver City Drilling Rig 20 is currently mobilising to the Rougemont-3 site, with the spud of the well expected in the coming week, the company said.

State Gas is also mobilising a workover rig which will replace the current completion in Rougemont-2 with a ranging tool, which will link to the lateral well direction finding equipment to ensure the laterals meet the vertical wells as intended, the company said.
