The well is in the final stage of obtaining 90 metres of core across the Pyrenees and Murion members that will be used for a full evaluation of the reservoir properties.

The core will be transferred off the rig to laboratories for analysis.


Forward Plan


Drilling will recommence and the final section of the hole will be drilled to a total depth of around 1,440 metres.

Following this brief final drilling operation, a wireline logging program will commence.

The program is expected to include the use of the Saturn Probe for formation pressure testing and fluid sampling.

Board and management, made up of North West Shelf experts, own 7% of the company.
