Falcon Oil and Gas has announced the spudding of the Shenandoah South 1H (SS1H) horizontal well in exploration permit 117, located in the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, Northern Territory, Australia.
The Dublin-based oil and gas company and its partner Tamboran B2 have deployed the H&P (Helmerich & Payne) super-spec FlexRig Flex 3 Rig for drilling at SS1H well.
SS1H well includes a horizontal section of around 1,000m and targets the Amungee Member B-shale at an estimated target depth of 3,200m.
It is the first of two horizontal wells planned to be drilled in this year, around 60km south of the Amungee NW-2H (A2H) well site, located in the exploration permit (EP) 98.
The SS1H well is around 700m deeper than the A2H well, said Falcon.
“We are confident that learnings and results from the previous two Amungee wells drilled in EP 98, together with the two Santos-operated Tanumbirini wells drilled in EP 161 will have a positive impact on the outcome of the results from this SS1H well.”
