Carnarvon Petroleum Limited (ASX:CVN) is progressing as planned at the Phoenix South-3 well aimed at evaluating the gas and condensate potential of the Caley Member at the Phoenix project on the North West Shelf.

The 20-inch casing has been set and cemented in place, the Blowout Preventer has been installed and pressure tested, and drilling has started in 17 1/2 inch hole.

Carnarvon’s partner in the Phoenix project, Quadrant Energy, is drilling ahead in 17 1/2 inch hole at measured depth of 3,114 metres.

Quadrant estimates it will take around another week to finish drilling this section of hole to about 3,700 metres after which 13 5/8 inch casing will set.

A number of hole sections will be drilled prior to the primary Caley target section, which is expected to be intersected at a depth of around 5,300 metres.

Evaluating gas and condensate potential

The primary objective for the well is to evaluate the gas and condensate potential of the Caley Member within a large, faulted anti-clinal closure partially penetrated with the Phoenix South-2 well.

That well, 560 metres from the current well, encountered gas and condensate in the Caley Member but was unable to drill through and evaluate the formation.

The Phoenix South-3 well has been optimally designed to penetrate and evaluate the Caley Member’s hydrocarbon-bearing formations.

It will target a closure estimated by Carnarvon to contain a gross mean recoverable prospective resource of 489 Bscf of gas and 57 million barrels of associated condensate.

This equates to 143 million barrels of oil equivalent.
