Beach Energy has discovered gas at the Haselgrove-3 ST1 well in the Otway Basin of South Australia. Flow-test results from the primary target Sawpit Sandstone indicated a reservoir with high deliverability. The company said it was encouraged about moving ahead to commercialize “a large gas resource.” Beach planned immediate follow-up testing to confirm well deliverability and assess connected volumes and gas composition. Located on state forestry land in PPL 62, approximately five miles south of Penola, the well was drilled to a total measured depth of 14,209 ft. Early indications suggest the Sawpit Sandstone could flow at rates greater than 25 MMcf/D, the company said.
