Buru Energy (BRU) has seen the rig released from the Rafael 1 well in Western Australia.

Rafael 1 is located in the Canning Basin in the northwest of Western Australia and is jointly held by Buru Energy and Origin Energy.

Buru reported that 114 millimetres (mm) of tubing has been run and set inside the seven-inch casing. The 114mm tubing string was run instead of a previously proposed roughly 60mm string to offer operational flexibility and minimise the potential for wellbore restrictions to flow.

The interpreted Ungani Dolomite reservoir section below the seven-inch casing shoe at 3868 metres has been left uncased to maximise the flow potential of the interpreted reservoir section.

The rig was released at midnight on December 2 and is currently being mobilised to the Ungani Oilfield, with the Ungani 8H well expected to spud just before Christmas.

The company said it expects it will be several days before the well site drilling equipment has been cleared from the wellhead and the test equipment mobilised to the site.

The production test is expected to begin in mid-December, with timing subject to the weather and COVID restrictions on staff who are interstate.

The test program is scheduled to take around one week, with a series of flow periods and shut-ins planned to determine reservoir parameters.

The results of the test are expected shortly after it has been completed, and the data has been analysed.

Buru Energy last traded at 18 cents on December 3.
