Eni completes appraisal well offshore Australia
SAN DONATO MILANESE -- Eni has successfully completed the Evans Shoal North-1 appraisal well in the Evans Shoal gas field in the Timor Sea, Australia. The field is located offshore in the NT/P48 exploration permit, in the north Bonaparte basin, some 300 km northwest of Darwin.
The Evans Shoal North 1 well, drilled in 111 m water depth and to a target depth of 3,955 m, is 12 km away from the Evans Shoal-2. Results indicate that these wells share common reservoir characteristics and are in hydraulic communication. During the well production test the gas flow reached the facility constraint of 30 MMscf/day. Eni estimates that the Evans Shoal gas field contains at least 8Tcf of raw gas in place.
Eni remains committed to fast track development of the significant and known resources in this exploration area.
The partners in the NT/P48 joint venture are Eni Australia Ltd (32.5%), Shell (32.5% and Operator), Petronas Carigali (Australia) Pty Ltd (25%) and Osaka Gas Australia Pty Ltd (10%). Eni operates the Evans Shoal North well on behalf of the joint venture.
