Senex Energy Limited has commenced commercial production of gas, achieving its inaugural gas sales from the Hornet field in the Cooper Basin.
Senex Managing Director Ian Davies said this was an important milestone for the business and demonstrated real progress in developing the company's gas capabilities as part of its Growth Acceleration Strategy.
'Delivering gas production into a commercial contract brings us an important step closer to establishing a high value, sustainable gas business from our Cooper and Surat Basin assets', he said.
The Hornet-1 gas well within PRL 105 (Senex 100%) tested at a flow rate of more than two million standard cubic feet per day in pre-commissioning. The Kingston Rule-1 well is currently awaiting workover, with production from this well expected in early 2015.
