Transerv's Warro well posts strong results

Transerv Energy has reported strong results from the Warro-5ST well, located in Western Australia’s onshore Perth Basin, with gas pay encountered over a gross 175 m interval.

The results include approximately 130 m of net gas pay in massive stacked sands.

The well currently remains in gas at its total depth of 4,422 m, reinforcing the field’s substantial potential of 8–10 Tcf in place while suggesting further, deeper resources could be present.

Transerv Executive Director Stephen Keenihan said the results were outstanding because they extended the known parameters of the gas at Warro both at depth and laterally.

“The results are very strong and increase the economic potential of Warro significantly,” Mr Keenihan said.

“As well as the presence of thick, gas-filled sands in the southern part of the field, the fact that the well was still in gas at total depth, pointing to additional, deeper, reserve potential, shows the potential for the Warro field to be even larger than previously thought.

“While stimulation and testing needs to be carried out to determine the full commercial significance of the well, these results are highly promising.”

Warro-5ST has deepened the lowest known gas in the field by over 60 m with the potential for further gas zones to be present in the next 300 m or so of underlying, untested interval between the well’s total depth and the top of the Cadda shale.

In addition to having a substantial onshore gas resource, the Warro Gas Project has the advantage of being located just 30 km from two key pipelines – the Dampier Bunbury Natural Gas and Parmelia pipelines.

Joint venture interests in the project include Transerv subsidiary Latent Petroleum (57 per cent, operator) and Alcoa of Australia (43 per cent).
