The proposed well will be drilled in 125m of water, just 26km offshore and 30km SSE of Newcastle. The well drilling is conditional on securing the regulatory approvals and funding for the program. The drill program is anticipated to be completed in 40 days.
The exploration well targets to fulfil two major objectives –
- Testing a gas target
- Estimation and evaluation of Carbon Capture Storage potential, subject to funding
When the well reaches its final depth and is fully evaluated, it will be plugged and abandoned in accordance with the regulatory requirements and the pre-drill planning as an exploration well. Subsequently, the wellhead and the associated eq1uipment will also be removed from the seabed.
