Galilee Energy has drilled through to total depth of the Glenaras 20 vertical well as part of a multi-well pilot program in the Galilee Basin, Queensland.
The company spudded the well on October 4, with it intersecting the full Betts Creek coal section.
All coals were encountered on prognosis with excellent development throughout all targeted seams, according to Galilee.
A total of 25m of net coal was intersected with a complete set of wireline logs run to characterise the coal seams prior to production.
The Glenaras 20 well has now been cased and suspended for future production in what is a further successful step in a five-well pilot enhancement programme.
In addition, Glenaras 22 was spudded on Sunday, with surface casing being cemented to 208m and the rig is drilling ahead in the 8.5-inch hole section at 330m.
Last week, the company drilled to the total depth of Glenaras 19, which intersected a total of 25m of net coal and was complete with a set of wireline logs run to characterise the coals seams prior to production.
The well was then cased and suspended for future production.
Galilee also drilled through to the planned depth of the Glenaras 21 vertical well last month, intersecting the full betts Creek coal section.
The company reported that a total of 25.5m of net coal was interested with a complete set of airline logs run to characterise the coal seams prior to production
In August, Galilee signed a drilling contract with Silver City for its Glenaras multi-lateral pilot program to use Rig 25 Schramm T200XD drill.
The vertical wells are set to exploit the exisiting pressure depletion already created by the pilot and accelerate the depletion without any disruption, due to there being no required shut-in of the pilot.
“All five wells will be drilled vertically to just below the R7 coal, resulting in a total depth of 1050m,” Galilee stated.
