ARMOUR Energy is celebrating encouraging results after encountering thick Tinowon sand packages and its Myall Creek North-1 development well in Queensland.
The company said yesterday it has carried out open hole wireline logging and modular formation dynamic testing, with the Tinowon sand packages encountered including gassy sands with potentially sufficient pressure and permeability for conventional production.
Armour said it's encouraged by logging and testing, and the 4½" production casing has been run and cemented earlier this week.
Further analysis of the logging and MDT data will enable the well completion design to be finalised and installed, followed by a flow test of the primary conventional sandstones before finally installing the wellhead skid and the tie-in pipeline.
The company said the logging results provides a line of sight to possible future drilling targets based on geophysical mapping and sandstone property prediction conducted by Armour.
The SCD Rig 20 will move to the Horseshoe 4 well pad to drill the next well in the program after its work on MCN1 is completed, with the well being planned to be spud next week.
Armour said the MCN1 and Horseshoe-4 wells continue Armour's Phase 3 growth strategy which includes the drilling of new wells and investigations into workovers, stimulation of existing wells and new 3D seismic surveys.
The company believes this together with further work on the Kincora Gas Plant will help reach its 20TJ/day gas production target.
Earlier this week, Armour announced Santos would farm into its vast North Queensland and Northern Territory acreage.
The two will jointly explore and develop the junior's extensive acreage across the South Nicholson Basin in Queensland and the Northern Territory.
