Carnarvon Petroleum Ltd (ASX:CVN) has mobilised the Noble Tom Prosser jack-up drilling rig which is now close to being on the Dorado-2 well location.

The Dorado-2 well is the first appraisal of the significant Dorado discovery that was drilled in the second half of 2018.

The Dorado-2 well is planned as a down-dip appraisal well to delineate the hydrocarbon contacts in the Caley, Baxter and Milne Members of the Lower Keraudren Formation.

The results from this well will be used to increase subsurface certainty and provide additional comfort that the Dorado structure has sufficient hydrocarbons to support a development.

The Dorado-2 well is about 160 kilometres north-northeast of Port Hedland in the Bedout Sub-basin.

Drilling is in about 95 metres water depth with the Dorado-2 location being around 2.2 kilometres from the Dorado-1 location.

Following the Dorado-2 well, the rig is scheduled to drill the near-field exploration well Roc South-1 with the Dorado-3 appraisal well to immediately follow the Roc South-1 well.
