Cooper Basin – ATP 2021 (Vintage 50% and operator, Metgasco Ltd (ASX: MEL) 25%, Bridgeport Cooper Basin Pty Ltd 25%)
The Vali-2 well was spudded on 22 April and is currently drilling ahead in the Toolachee Formation at 2,403 metres. The safety performance to date has been excellent with no incidents to report. Pleasingly, gas shows have been observed at the base of the Nappamerri and top of the Toolachee formations. Total depth is expected to be reached around mid-May 2021.
The primary objectives of Vali-2 are to appraise the extent of the Patchawarra Formation gas accumulation discovered in Vali-1 ST1, as well as assess the potential for gas in the Toolachee Formation four-way dip closure, not tested in Vali-1 ST1.
