MELBOURNE, May 10 -- Beach Energy Ltd., Adelaide, and its Sydney-based partner Drillsearch Energy Ltd. have brought on stream their Brownlow gas-condensate field in the Cooper basin of South Australia.
The field, discovered last year in permit PEL 106B, is currently flowing at 18 MMcfd of gas and 120 b/d of condensate from one well on extended production test.
Beach farmed into the permit and took operatorship of the Brownlow-1 exploration well as part of its obligations to earn a 50% interest.
The well confirmed gas pay in a 7-m thick sand in the Permian-age Patchawarra formation.
The extended production test is aimed at confirming the overall potential gas resources within the discovery, along with the quality of the reservoir sands and the long-term deliverability of the field.
Brownlow lies about 55 km northwest of Moomba and in close proximity to previous wet gas fields Raven and Middleton.
