Vintage starts flow testing of Odin-1 well in Cooper basin

Sydney-listed Vintage Energy on October 25 announced that flow testing operations on the Odin-1 well in PRL 211 in the Cooper basin have started.

According to Vintage, Odin-1 exploration well, drilled in May this year, discovered extensive gas reservoirs in multiple formations, principally in the primary target Toolachee and Patchawarra formations and the basal Epsilon formation.

The Odin gas discovery is close to the Vali gas field discovery and is expected to add substantial gas production volumes to Vintage's gas portfolio, the company said. A successful flow test will validate the initial approach of perforating the Toolachee and Epsilon formations ahead of the Patchawarra formation and is expected to accelerate gas production from the Odin field, it added.

Vintage is the operator of PRL 211 and holds 42.5% interest, Metgasco owns 21.25%, Bridgeport 21.25% and Impress 15%.
