Cooper Energy Limited commences a three well drilling campaign in PPL 220 and PRL 98 on the western flank of the Cooper Basin, with the spudding of Callawonga-10 on 25 April 2015 at 10:30 hours. At 06:00 hours today, the well was being circulated clean prior to cementing 9-5/8' surface casing at 681 metres.
The drilling campaign includes the following development, appraisal and exploration wells.
•Callawonga-10, an oil development well located 280 metres east of Callawonga-2, to accelerate production from, and to potentially add reserves to, the southern area of the Callawonga Field (PPL 220). Total depth is prognosed at 1,480 metres.
•Callawonga-11, an oil appraisal well 670 metres southeast of Callawonga-9, is a significant step out from existing wells. This well will appraise the potential for additional oil reserves in the southeastern area of the field. Total depth is prognosed at 1,730 metres.
•Sensation-1 (PRL 98), an oil exploration well, will test a mapped anticlinal structure located 3km north of the Callawonga Field. Total depth is prognosed at 1,923 metres.
