Beach discoves non-commercial oil at PEL 249's Elliston-2 well

Cooper Energy Limited says that Elliston-2, located in PPL 249 on the western flank of the Cooper Basin, South Australia, has been plugged and abandoned after reaching a total depth of 5,446 feet (1,660 meters). The well encountered 3.2 feet (1 meter) of oil pay in the primary target Namur Sandstone, which was considered non-commercial to complete as an oil producer.

Cooper Energy Exploration Manager Andrew Thomas said “Elliston-2 penetrated the top of the Namur Sandstone reservoir 6.5 feet (2 meters) deeper than the pre-drill depth prognosis. However, the oil-water-contact in Elliston-2 was encountered at the same depth as in Elliston-1 which has been on production since December 2012. This indicates that Elliston-1 is accessing oil from a different part of the field than previously thought.”
