Beach finds gas in South Australia

Beach Energy announced a new gas field discovery at Haselgrove-3 ST1 in the onshore Otway Basin, South Australia.

Flow test results from the primary target Sawpit Sandstone indicate a high deliverability reservoir and provide encouragement to move towards commercialization of a large gas resource.

Beach plans to undertake immediate follow-up testing to confirm well deliverability and assess connected volumes and gas composition.

Haselgrove-3 ST1 is located on state forestry land in PPL 62, approximately 8km south of Penola.

Haselgrove-3 ST1 was drilled as a deviated well to a total measured depth of 4331m and targeted the Sawpit Sandstone and shallower Pretty Hill Sandstone.

The well intersected an estimated gross gas column of 104m in the Sawpit Sandstone, with estimated net pay of 25.6m.

Flow rates were constrained to 25 MMscf/d due to the size of completion tubing. Preliminary gas sample analysis indicates low inert content, which should minimise gas processing requirements.

The well is currently shut-in with preparations underway for the commencement of an initial production test (IPT) in late January 2018. The IPT will confirm well deliverability and gas composition and will assist field development planning.
