Buru Energy has advised that its 2015 exploration program on the Ungani trend in WA's Canning Basin continues with the spudding of the Senagi-1 exploration well located in exploration permit EP 458, 240kms south east of Broome and 144kms south east of Buru Energy's Ungani Oilfield.
Senagi-1 is being drilled with the DDH1 Rig#31 and has a programmed maximum total depth of 1,200 metres. It is expected to take some 28 days to drill.
The well is targeting conventional oil and gas in the Lower Laurel (Ungani Dolomite) and Devonian aged (Nullara) carbonates. The Senagi Prospect is a structural closure defined by 1980's vintage 2D seismic and Buru Energy's 2014 regional aerogravity surveys. It is interpreted to have some 100 metres of vertical relief at the initial target depth of around 800 metres drill depth.
