Cooper Energy said that Callawonga-16, a development well drilled by the PEL 92 joint venture in PPL 220, is to be cased and suspended as a future oil producer.

Cooper holds a 25% interest in the PEL 92 with the balance held by the operator, Beach Energy.

Callawonga-16 was drilled to a total depth of 1486m and its primary target, the McKinlay Member sandstone, was encountered 1m low to prognosis, with 2.3m gross thickness and an interpreted 2m of net oil pay in a clean sand.

The Namur Sandstone was also intersected 1m low to prognosis with an interpreted 1.8m of net oil pay. Callawonga-16 was the fourth of a five well campaign on the Callawonga oil field targeting previously undeveloped reserves in the McKinlay Member sandstone.

Cooper said following completion of casing and suspension operations, the rig will drill the remaining well of the campaign from the same location, where the interpreted structural high of the field will be further developed.
