Drilling of Dorado-3 appraisal well
Earlier this month the company drilled the Dorado-3 appraisal well to a depth of about 3,878 metres with the rig preparing operations in order to set and cement the liner.
Details of the reservoirs and hydrocarbons encountered will not be able to be assessed until after this coring operation is complete.
The well will then be deepened before a further 150 metres of whole bore core is acquired over the lower reservoir sections.
The Dorado oil and gas field is around 160 kilometres northeast of Port Hedland in the Dedout sub-basin in about 95 metres water depth.
The Dorado-3 well has been designed to enhance the joint venture’s confidence in the subsurface characteristics and confirm reservoir productivity.
It is planned to conduct two, and potentially up to three flow tests targeting the Caley, Baxter and Milne reservoirs as well as acquire about 380 metres of full-bore core in the Caley, Baxter, Crespin and Milne members.
