Vintage Energy (VEN) is preparing to stimulate a new well at its ATP joint venture project in Queensland.

Vintage Managing Director Neil Gibbins is pleased that work is moving along at the site.

“The fracture stimulation of the Vali-1 ST1 well is the first of two key steps that will provide an indication of the gas flow capability of the Vali discovery. It is pleasing that all activities are on schedule to this point and we look forward to again working with Condor to complete a safe and hopefully successful stimulation operation at Vali-1 ST1," Neil said.

“Vali is an important step for Vintage as we look to evolve beyond exploration and appraisal into production,” he continued.
