Real: Performance of Tamarama-1 improving
Real Energy Corporation has advised that it “is now witnessing a stronger and faster build-up of pressure and more gas flowing to surface” at the Tamarama-1 well at the Windorah gas project in ATP 927P in the Queensland Cooper Basin, with the strongest flare to date having occurred in the last week.
Having been on intermittent flow and shut-in periods, Tamarama-1 continues to produce increased gas flows and also water, Real advised, with estimated cumulative gas and fluid recovery to date of over 85 MMscf and over 13,500 bbl fluids, comprising “mainly frac fluids with additional water volume being interpreted to come from the coal seam interbeds within the Toolachee and upper Patchawarra formations sections”.
Real stated that a plunger lift system will be installed in Tamarama-1 shortly to optimise the dewatering process.
Real stated that Tamarama-1's improving performance, together with a recently signed MoU with Santos, is providing it “greater confidence in commercialising the broader Windorah gas project”, with Real also reporting “that discussions with a number of potential offtakers on supplying gas into the domestic market are ongoing and positive”.
