AGR’s Well Management Division has spudded the Sasanof-1 exploration well in Australia’s Carnarvon Basin, on behalf of Western Gas.
The semi-submersible Valaris MS-1 rig arrived at the deep water well location earlier in the week and spud the well on 26th May in the Carnarvon Basin, approximately 207 km off North West of Onslow.
A recent report on the contribution of high impact wells released by IHS Markit (part of S&P Global) earlier this year, cited the Sasanof Prospect as being one of only two high impact wells in the Asia Pacific region of the 20 global high impact wells planned due to be drilled in 2022.
Based on the independent estimates, the Sasanof Prospect contains a 2U Prospective Resource of 7.2 Tcf gas and 176 Million bbls condensate (P50), with a high case 3U Prospective Resource estimate of 17.8 Tcf gas and 449 Million bbls condensate (P10).
Lynden Duthie, Vice President Well Management of AGR, said “We are proud that Western Gas has trusted us to be their partner for such a high profile well.
AGR’s Well Management team has been working with Western Gas over the last 12 months to seamlessly prepare for the start of drilling operations. Our project team, based in Perth, was contracted to provide all aspects of Well Planning, Procurement, Detailed Planning and execution of the deep water exploration well”.
