Tamboran commences Shenandoah South activities

Tamboran Resources

Tamboran Resources has commenced stimulation activities at the Shenandoah South 1H (SS-1H) well pad within the Beetaloo Basin in the Northern Territory (NT).

The program includes ten simulation stages over a 500-metre horizontal section within the Mid-Velkerri B Shale and is expected to complete in December 2023.

Conducted by Condor Energy Services, once the campaign completes, production tubing will be installed ahead of the flowback of stimulation fluid and gas breakthrough.

“We look forward to demonstrating the deliverability of the Mid-Velkerri B Shale in the Shenandoah South region, which is located in the deepest area of the western ‘core’ of the Beetaloo Basin,” Tamboran Resources managing director and chief executive officer Joel Riddle said.

“Results from the SS-1H well are a key deliverable that will support the sanctioning of our proposed 40 million cubic foot per day Pilot Project at Shenandoah South.

“The stimulation of the SS-1H well incorporates lessons learned from the programs at Amungee NQ 2H in Tamboran-operated EP 98 and Tanumbirini wells in Santos-oeprated EP 161.

“This includes an increase in hydraulic horsepower, higher well design pressures to increase effectiveness of stimulation treatments and fluid conditioning methodologies to decrease the risk of skin damage.”
