Australia: Bengal taps rig for Cooper/Eromanga wells

By OGJ editors

Bengal Energy Ltd., Calgary, has purchased a 3,000-m capacity rotary rig and expects it to be mobilized to Brisbane from Dubai by July 2012 for the company’s drilling program on 100% owned ATP 732 in the southwestern Cooper/Eromanga basin.

The company has identified six potential drilling locations in four key play types at 1,000-1,800 m that include light oil in Jurassic, Cretaceous, and fractured basement and gas in Permian Toolachee sandstones.
