AWE Limited discovered elevated gas readings at its Irwin-1 well in Western Australia’s onshore Perth basin. The gas was detected in the Dongara/Wagina sandstones, which are the well’s primary target. Gas was also detected in secondary targets, such as the Carynginia shale, the Irwin River coal measures, and the deeper Kingia and High Cliff sandstones. Intervals will be further evaluated with a wireline logging program. The Irwin prospect straddles licenses EP320 and L1 and is operated by AWE with partner Origin Energy through an agency agreement.
