Woodside Petroleum - Pyxis-1 exploration well
Woodside advises that the Pyxis-1 exploration well in production licence WA-34-L has intersected approximately 18.5 metres of net gas within the Jurassic sandstone target.
The well reached a total depth of 3347 metres. Wireline logging has confirmed the discovery through the recovery of gas samples to surface and establishment of a gas pressure gradient.
Woodside Executive Vice President Global Exploration Philip Loader said: 'Given its location, this successful exploration outcome offers future tie-back potential to Woodside's existing Pluto infrastructure.'
Pyxis-1 is located in Production Licence WA-34-L, within Western Australia's Dampier Sub-Basin and is located approximately 15 km north of Woodside's producing Pluto Gas Field infrastructure.
