Chevron finds more gas off Western Australia

Chevron Australia has made two more significant gas discoveries offshore Western Australia.

The company’s Pinhoe-1 wildcat in permit WA-383-P about 200 km north of Exmouth has encountered 60 m of net gas pay in the Barrow and Mungaroo Sand reservoirs. Water depth in the region is 929 m.

In addition, the Arnhem-1 wildcat in permit WA-364-P about 290 km north of Exmouth discovered 45.5 m of net gas pay in the upper Mungaroo Sands. Water depth here is 1,208 m.

The two discoveries are significant because they are further out from other discoveries in the Greater Gorgon and Wheatstone development regions in the Carnarvon basin. Consequently they provide development potential across a much broader province.

Chevron’s discovery total since mid-2009 now moves up to 19.

Chevron is operator of both permits with 50% interest in each. Royal Dutch Shell PLC holds the other 50% interests.
