AWE’s Western Australia Drover-1 well reached a target measured depth of 2356 m. The well is 18 km southeast of Green Head and 220 km north of Perth and was drilled to test the unconventional gas potential in the southern area of AWE’s Perth basin acreage. Drover-1 encountered a 787-m section of Kockatea shale, a 257-m section of Carynginia shale, a 289-m section of Irwin River coal, and a 14.5-m section of High Cliff sandstone. The well will now be suspended pending further results. AWE (81.5%) is operator, with partner Titan Energy (18.5%).
