Cooper Energy proclaims that Sole-Four, the second of two manufacturing wells for the Sole Gas Project, is being shut-in for future connection after profitable clean-up and flow-back operations. Sole-Four was drilled, sandscreens put in and gravel packed throughout mid to late July. The clean-up and flow-back take a look at was carried out on a near-horizontal 112 metre part of the Top Latrobe Group sandstone reservoir. During the 11-hour primary move interval via a 192/64” choke, the move fee averaged roughly 54 MMscf/d. Preliminary technical evaluation signifies Sole-Four can produce at or close to the onshore plant capability of 68 TJ/day. The fuel composition at Sole-Four is according to expectations and according to measurements from each Sole-Three and the sooner Sole-2 appraisal nicely. H2S concentrations are as anticipated and nicely inside plant specs. Diamond Offshore Ocean Monarch conducting flow-back operations at Sole-Four, Four August 2018 2 Cooper Energy Managing Director David Maxwell mentioned the testing of Sole-Four concludes a profitable drilling program for the Sole Gas Project. “Both Sole-Three and Sole-Four have delivered on design and confirmed our evaluation of the superb deliverability of the Sole reservoir. We now have two wells, able to go, which have proven functionality for larger manufacturing charges than design ought to the plant throughput allow this” he mentioned. “Having now accomplished the workstream which carried the best monetary publicity, the challenge stays inside schedule and inside funds. As the remaining workstreams are based mostly on mounted worth lump sum contracts, this place has additional strengthened our confidence in challenge completion throughout the forecast funds of $355 million” mentioned Mr Maxwell. Sole-Four is at present being suspended previous to pipeline connection. Pipeline welding is advancing with 47 km of the 65 km complete size having been welded into 1.5 km stalks. It is anticipated the pipelay operation to attach the Sole fuel subject with the Orbost Gas Processing Plant will begin in October 2018. (Source and picture: Cooper Energy)
