Strike Energy evaluates third appraisal at South Erregulla

Strike Energy will complete and flow test the SE3 appraisal well in PL L24 in the southwestern flank of South Erregulla gas field, Australia.

Strike Energy Ltd. will complete and flow test the SE3 appraisal well in production license (PL) L24 in the southwestern flank of South Erregulla gas field, Perth basin, Australia.

The SE3 well encountered the Kingia sandstone at 4,817 m MD where a gross interval of 54 m was observed. The Kingia is made up of three sections of reservoir totaling 16 m of net pay with an average porosity of 11% and porosities up to 18%.

Mud logs, logging while drilling, and wireline logging tools were used to evaluate the Kingia sandstone where cuttings have been collected. Net pay is made up of two blocks of reservoir totaling 13 m with an average porosity of 10.2%.

Kingia evaluation used cutoffs consistent with Strike’s other successful Kingia wells across the Erregulla region (OGJ Online, Oct. 6, 2023). Pressure and mobility data have been collected and measured reservoir pressure is about 6,746 psia.

Strike will now run, set, and cement the 7-in. liner before installing the 5 ½-in. production tubing string along with the well head and christmas tree. Wells SE2 and SE3 will be flow tested in a campaign expected to begin in late January 2024. The SE3 well was observed as being downdip of the SE1 discovery well and confirms the presence of gas filled conventional reservoir in the Kingia to the northwest of the field. This data, along with the SE2 results, will form the basis for an independent review and potential conversion of contingent resources in PL L24 to reserves.

Strike Energy is operator at South Erregulla (100%).
