The scope of work to be carried out included:

  • review of existing data and recent geological prognoses for the Baleen well,
  • documentation of the subsurface well design envelope, along with
  • compilation of a preliminary well design, project costs and project schedule to finalise the Baleen – 1 Exploration well.

Future Course of Action

Subject to funding and approvals, Advent now intends to conduct deeper drilling to carry out an evaluation of the Offshore Sydney Basin for carbon capture and storage (geo-sequestration of CO2 emissions).

This has led to a revised specification of a well to target early Permian sandstones for both carbon sequestration and hydrocarbon potential, with a revised total depth being set at 3150 metres.

A report from the Australian Financial Review - ”Carbon prices tipped to surge”, dated 7 April 2021, recently highlighted the importance of the carbon storage objective in addition to gas.

BPH informed that the recently received Basis of Well Design report is currently being evaluated.
