Chevron finds more gas offshore Western Australia

Chevron Australia has found more gas next to its significant Acme gas discovery offshore Western Australia.

The company has announced that its Acme West-1 and Acme West-2 wells have encountered 115 m and 56 m net gas pays, respectively.

The two wells were drilled in permit WA-205-P using the Atwood Eagle semisubmersible and represent Chevron’s eleventh field discovery in a 2-year program in the region.

The nearby Acme field was found in August 2010 by the Acme-1 wildcat, which encountered a net gas pay of 273 m and was hailed as one of the most significant gas finds in Australia.

The Acme West field is 150 km off Onslow in 925 m of water and will be a boost to expansion opportunities in the company’s Wheatstone LNG project.

Chevon holds 67% in WA-205-P; Shell holds the remainder.
