HOUSTON, May 14
– Central Petroleum Ltd., Perth, will spud the first of a three-well conventional drilling program in the lightly drilled Amadeus basin by May 31 in Australia’s Northern Territory.

Ooraminna-2 targets as much as 2 tcf of gas in a fractured reservoir that flowed gas to surface in 1963 but was not effectively tested. The well will be drilled directionally and with air in order to increase the number of vertical fracture systems contacted.

Ooraminna-1 was a vertical well that did not maximize fracture intersections and was filled with overweight mud for 60 days prior to testing
