Headline: Ironbark Weekly Drilling Update #4 As At 26 November 2020 (NZ Time)
As at 6:00 26 November 2020 (AWST) the Operator has advised that the Ironbark-1 well had reached a measured depth of 3040 metres.
In the past week we completed drilling the 17½” x 21.2″ hole, installed the 18” liner and completed the cementing job for this section of the well.
The Ironbark well will test the Triassic Mungaroo Formation with multiple sand objectives. The reservoir has been explored nearby at comparably shallower depths and includes discoveries at the Gorgon, Goodwyn and North Rankin gas condensate fields. The primary target is at a depth of 5668 metres TVD subsea in water depths of 301 metres. The well is expected to take around 85 days to drill.
