Update on the AGR-managed Sasanof-1 exploration drilling campaign

AGR’s Perth-based Well Management team are delighted on behalf of our client, Western Gas, as they execute the formal contract with Valaris Limited for the MS-1 semi-submersible rig for the Sasanof-1 well.


AGR’s Well Management was awarded the Well Project Management contract earlier this year to deliver well engineering, contracting & procurement, logistics, HSEQ and operational supervision of the well.

The Sasanof-1 exploration well is located in WA-519-P license permit, in the Carnarvon Basin, offshore Western Australia, in a water depth of approx 1,070m.

Drilling operations are anticipated to commence in March/April 2022.

Andy Perchard, VP APAC of AGR, comments, “Our Australia team are leading provider of Well Management and Well Engineering consultancy in the region and we look forward to supporting Western Gas and their partners in achieving their ambitions in the WA-519-P license permit.”Sasanof-1 exploration well is targeting a 2U Prospective Resource of 7.2 Tcf gas and 176 Million bbls condensate (P501 ), with 32% geological chance of success. It will be a vertical well and drilled to a total depth of approximately 2,500 m, providing a low cost, high impact exploration well in a known and proven hydrocarbon province.
