Exploration

Two play types are being evaluated by integrated data review to identify further well locations. The gas bearing Pioneer Sandstone is believed to be more intensely fractured in the crestal area, which could favour higher gas flow rates. An untested intra-salt target has been identified beneath the existing Pioneer Sandstone gas discovery at Ooraminna Gas Field. The Gillen Member of the Bitter Springs Formation comprising carbonate and salt is a target in the Southern Amadeus area, and is present and within structure at Ooraminna.

Additional technical work is required to develop a drilling location. A program of seismic reprocessing and acquisition in conjunction with detailed surface mapping is planned to progress appraisal of the field.
