Strike continues testing at South Erregulla

report gas opportunities

Strike Energy has commenced well testing at South Erregulla-2, following testing struggles at South Erregulla-3.

The company said drilling and completion fluids have been displaced from the well bore and have been produced to surface.

Gas and formation water is currently being produced to surface where samples of both have been collected. The company is now looking to mobilise additional equipment in the coming weeks in order to conduct further flow testing operations.

In early February 2024, Strike Energy noted that the South Erregulla-3 well had failed to flow.

“The SE-3 flow test has not matched its petrophysical interpretation, which is disappointing,” Strike Energy managing director and chief executive officer Stuart Nicholls said at the time.

“Further analysis and data collection is ongoing and Strike is reviewing the potential to return to the well.”

Since testing began at South Erregulla-3, 431psi of well head pressure has been observed to have built up in the well head indicating some form of a pressure response from the primary formation in that well.

The company is conducting additional independent reviews and internal analysis to support the forward plan at both South Erregulla-2 and 3.
