Galilee spuds Glenaras 10

Galilee Energy Limited has spudded the first lateral well, Glenaras 10, at the Glenaras Gas Project in Queensland’s Galilee Basin.

The Easternwell Rig 101 commenced drilling operations last Friday, marking the beginning of its multi-lateral pilot program in the Glenaras Gas Project.

The approximately six-week program will see Galilee drill three lateral well and conduct a production testing pilot, with the potential to deliver up to 73 PJ/a to the east coast gas market; the start of production is target to begin in early June.

As of Monday 26 March, the well was drilled at a depth of 762 m MD in the 8-1/2 inch pilot hole, with a targeted depth of 1,100 m MD.

Galilee Basin pipeline

In 2017, Jemena and Galilee Energy signed a MoU for the construction of a large diameter pipeline to deliver up to 200 TJ/d from the Glenaras Gas Project to the east coast market from 2022.

Jemena has commenced pre-front end engineering and design (FEED) and is in the process of preparing applications for a pipeline license and environmental approvals.

Jemena is developing two pipeline options: the first being designed to carry gas from the Galilee Basin only (200-300 TJ/d); the second being designed to carry gas from the Northern Territory as well as the Galilee Basin (up to 700 TJ/d).
