Comet Ridge Ltd’s (ASX:COI) shares closed 9.5% higher on Tuesday after commencing gas production at its Mira wells in the Mahalo Block in central Queensland.

The Mira 6 and 2 horizontal-vertical well combination was brought on-line on Sunday 10 December and commenced gas production in just two days.

Significantly, all four vertical wellbores are now on-line and are actively dewatering the Mira Pilot Scheme, with three wells also producing gas.

The gas rates have been increasing steadily and are expected to rise significantly as the Mira 2 pump speed is increased.

Pump speed in the well would be gradually increased during the Christmas to New Year period.

Comet Ridge has a 40% interest in the Mahalo project located circa 240 kilometres west of Gladstone in the southern Bowen Basin.

The project is close to infrastructure with pipeline connections to the Gladstone domestic and LNG market a short distance from the project.

The company scaled back the applications to circa $3.1 million and will use the funds to progress its east coast gas assets.
