  • Strike is preparing to perforate the well across the Kingia interval before running the completion assembly and 3-1/2” tubing string

Strike Energy has successfully run the final casing string in the West Erregulla 2 well.

The casing string is a long section of connected oilfield pipe that is lowered into a wellbore and cemented. The purpose of the casing pipe is to prevent the collapse of the borehole.

The 5-1/2″ casing string, was set at a depth of 5090 metres. The string has been cemented in place, safely securing the Kingia and High Cliff gas discoveries at West Erregulla.

The West Erregulla 2 well is located in the Perth Basin in Western Australia.

In 2018, Strike farmed into the EP 469 exploration for a 50 per cent interest with Warrego Energy.

As part of the farm-in agreement, Strike will free carry the first $11 million of well costs for the drilling of the West Erregulla 2 well.

“Given the excellent results seen to date and the quality of the Kingia gas discovery, the well is likely to be physically constrained with the flowrate from the Kingia alone,” Strike added.

Strike is preparing to perforate the well across the Kingia interval before running the completion assembly and 3-1/2” tubing string.

Flow tests at the High Cliff and Wagina gas discoveries will be planned and prepared for in the near future.

Strike is an independent oil and gas exploration company that is focused on the Southern Cooper Basin Gas Project.

“We believe the successful development of this resource to supply the Australian East Coast Gas markets will deliver significant value to Strike’s shareholders and Eastern Australian gas users,” the company stated.

Once the well is completed, the rig will be demobilised to allow the production flow test to be conducted.
