AWE has commenced flow testing the Waitsia-4 well in the Perth basin, which will complete the appraisal program on the conventional Waitsia gas field for 2017.

The testing program is designed to determine well deliverability from the southern extent of the Waitsia field and to collect gas samples for compositional analysis.

The zone being flow tested is the Kingia Sandstone, where a 50m interval has been perforated. The well flowed gas at an instantaneous maximum rate of 90 MMscf/d and an average of 89.6 MMscf/d on a 96/64in choke.

CEO David Biggs said: “Overall, these results have exceeded our pre-test expectations and reinforce our plans for the Stage 2 development, particularly the low number of wells initially required and the straightforward facilities design.

“Waitsia-4 completes the sub-surface works program. Results from Waitsia-4 will be incorporated into AWE’s ongoing evaluation of Waitsia reserves, and we expect to release a reserves update before the end of 2017. No further appraisal is required before a FID for the Waitsia Stage 2 development.”
