Dory Gas Discovery: likely remedy for East Coast gas supply woes
Liberty's Chief Geoscientist Ken Grieves will be presenting Liberty's work on Dory at a PESA technical evening talk in Perth, Thursday 29 September. PESA WA is expecting a good turnout for the talk.
Recent work by a small US independent has demonstrated that the 2008 Dory-1 gas discovery in the offshore Gippsland Basin has sufficient resources to remedy the impending shortfall of gas supply to customers on Australia's east coast.
By applying an unconventional approach in time to depth conversion Liberty Petroleum has demonstrated that Dory-1 lies at the westernmost edge of a multi-Tcf gas field which has remained hidden below the continental slope of Bass Straight despite 50 years of intensive exploration.
The Dory-1 well was drilled by Apache in 2008. Although it encountered a 30 m gross gas column in good reservoir at the top of Latrobe it was plugged and abandoned as a sub-commercial gas discovery. Dory-1 is now within the VIC/P70 licence, currently held 100% by Liberty Petroleum Corporation. Much of this licence lies in the deeper water southeastern part of the Gippsland Basin.
