Beach Energy has found a new conventional gas field at the Beharra Springs Deep-1 well in Perth Basin, Western Australia.

The Beharra Springs Deep-1 well is in permit L11 in which the organization claims a 50% stake. Operator Mitsui E&P Australia (MEPAU) claims the remaining 50%.

Penetrated to a total depth of 4,170m, the well is found 16km south of the Waitsia-4 well and 15km south-west of the West Erregulla-2 well.

It interconnected a 65m-thick reservoir interval of the Kingia Sandstone at a depth of 3,935m to 4,000m, with assessed net gas pay of 36m.

Wireline actions of the well are as of now in progress, after which generation testing will initiate over the coming weeks.

Beach Energy noticed that gas sampling and examination is at present being attempted at the Beharra Springs Deep-1 well.

The organization will finish an appraisal of the recoverable volumes at the endless supply of wireline assessment and creation testing exercises.

Beach Energy overseeing chief Matt Kay stated: “Perth Basin is a key development resource in the Beach portfolio. The outcome at Beharra Springs Deep is further approval of the Basin’s traditional gas potential inside the Kingia arrangement.

“Our close term plans incorporate the extension of Waitsia Stage 1, arriving at definite speculation choice on Waitsia Stage 2 and procurement of the Trieste 3D seismic review over the coming a very long time to high review various possibilities and leads as future penetrating applicants.

“The area of the Beharra Springs Deep-1 well, 450m from the Beharra Springs gas preparing office, gives a chance to lead broad deliverability testing while commercializing a bit of the gas.”

Last January, Beach Energy found another gas field at Haselgrove-3 ST1 in Otway Basin, South Australia.
