Central Petroleum Limited completed coring the Gaudi-1 well in Australia’s Southern Georgina basin. The coring started at a depth of 2105 m—continuing through the Lower Arthur Creek (LAC) formation and Thorntonia limestone—reaching a total depth of 2430 m in basement. Natural gas shows were detected while coring through LAC. Central plans to conduct a comprehensive wireline logging program next and will case and suspend the well ahead of the wet season. A total of 66 core segments were placed in sealed canisters for desorption analysis, from which the gas content of the LAC can be determined. Central (90%) is operator with partner Total (10%).
