Falcon Oil + Gas Australia Commences Rig Operations at Shenandoah #1 Well

Falcon Oil & Gas Australia has begun the Shenandoah #1 well operations, wherein the well is located in the Beetaloo Basin, Australia.

Due to the strange heavy rainfall in the region throughout the wet season, which came to an end recently, the company has postponed the well operations. As a result of flooding, the company constructed a road to access to the region and an additional structure at the well location and permitted the mobilization of a drill rig on to site. Falcon has completed the safety checks and rig-up operations and the well was penetrated again. At present, six cement plugs are being drilled out in the bore well.

The drill rig will reinforce a casing string, which is 4.5” long, to a depth at 2,714 m totally. Then that rig will move away and permit the Halliburton stimulation equipment to conduct testing operations on site. The company has scheduled to examine five intervals totally, in which two are in the Moroak sandstones, two in the Velkerri shales and one in the Lower Kyalla shales. The intervals contain potential gas resource. The company did not anticipate high flow rates from this perpendicular well, hydrocarbons generated to the surface will guide the future position of the horizontal wells to analyze the commerciality. Falcon is anticipating the completion of the full test series approximately in November end of this year.
