Real Energy said it commenced field operations in preparation for the fracture stimulation program at the Tamarama-1 well, part of the Windorah Gas project.
Located in the Cooper basin of Queensland, workover operations have commenced to re-complete the well with downhole fracture stimulation completion assembly. It is also expected that a diagnostic fracture injection test (DFIT) will be undertaken and the DFIT pressure test results will be used to fine-tune the fracture stimulation model.
Real Energy expects to commence the five-stage fracture stimulation program in the ToolacheePatchawarra formation sections at depth below 2300m in Tamarama-1 in March 2016.
The firm’s managing director, Scott Brown said this is an important step for Real Energy as they move towards commercializing the Windorah Gas project.
“Results from the multi-staged fracture stimulation being undertaken at our maiden basin centered gas well, Tamarama-1, will provide us with significant technical, operational and commercial information which will form the basis for further development of the project,” he noted.
“The company is well-placed to take full advantage of the growing demand for east coast gas, and this well stimulation program will further build on the excellent exploration results we have received to date at our 100%-owned ATP927P acreage.”
