Falcon Oil & Gas Australia Ltd. completed a 25-stage stimulation program at the Amungee NW-2H (A2H) well in Beetaloo sub-basin, Northern Territory, Australia.

The well was drilled in December 2022 to 3,883 m TD, including a 1,275-m horizontal section within the Amungee Member B Shale (formerly known as Middle Velkerri B-shale), Stimulation commenced in February 2023.

The stages were stimulated across a 1,020-m horizontal section within the Amungee Member B Shale, with about 2,125 pound/ft of proppant placed along the completed horizontal section. Proppant was placed using 5-½-inch casing and was based on modern US shale design which is anticipated to improve flow rates during the extended production test, the company said.

Stimulation fluid flow back will commence imminently and is estimated to take several weeks before the well is shut-in for installation of production tubing, the company continued. 30-day initial production (IP30) rates are expected during second-quarter 2023.
