Transerv Energy is preparing to start two pivotal appraisal wells at Warro, Australia's largest undeveloped onshore gas field, just 200km north of Perth.
The wells, which are being fully funded by Alcoa of Australia under its farm-in agreement with Transerv for the Warro Project, are aimed at unlocking the potentially immense value of a field that contains in-place resources of 8-10 trillion cubic feet of gas (TCF).
The Warro-5 and Warro-6 wells will be drilled 3.5km to the south and 1.5km south-west respectively of the previous wells on the giant Warro Field (see Figure 2). Both wells will be drilled to a total depth of approximately 4,250mRT with the rig on location for approximately 40 days for each well.
The two impending wells are aimed at establishing the ability of wells to flow gas at commercial rates and avoid the issues associated with water in Warro-3 and 4 wells. Warro-5 and 6 are the first wells to be located with the benefit of the Warro 3D seismic, which has provided a clear picture of the gas zones, deep-seated faulting and the field outline.
