Norwest Energy NL has received the required Federal and State government regulatory approvals to proceed with its planned Arrowsmith seismic survey. Pursuant to the approvals, Norwest will conduct the survey under stringent Federal and State government processes.
The survey will be conducted within exploration permit EP413 over an area of 106 km² at the Arrowsmith locality, 250km north of Perth, between Eneabba and Dongara.
The objective of the survey is to assess the extent of the resource surrounding the existing Arrowsmith-2 well location and to assist in defining the optimal location and target formation for Norwest's first horizontal well Arrowsmith-3.
Two separate intervals have been high-graded for potential development; the Carynginia Formation and the Irwin River Coal Measures. The seismic survey will provide further data to assist with defining the future development options of the Arrowsmith field.
