The well will also test the Poolowanna and Birkhead Formations as well as Hutton Sandstone as secondary targets.
Bagheera East-1 is located about 10 kilometres northeast of Hathi-1. In addition, the Telopea Field and the Keleary Field are located 13 kilometres and 10 kilometres respectively southeast of the well.
From the Dundinna 3D seismic survey analysis, Bagheera East is a structural trap mapped as a four-way dip closure.
