Harriet discovers hydrocarbon column off Western Australian coast

Jul 25, 2000 02:00 AM

The Harriet Joint Venture appears to have made a significant discovery while testing a new play in the Carnarvon Basin off the Western Australian coast. The Linda-1 wildcat, drilled in the Apache-led joint venture's prolific TL-1 permit, has encountered a 91 metre gross hydrocarbon column from 2659 metres to 2750 metres measured depth.
Interestingly, this column is above the prognosed reservoir section expected at approximately 2787 metres and all eyes will be on following reports with the well drilling ahead to the planned total depth of 3132 metres. While Linda-1 is located near a number of recent discoveries, is targeting a totally new play concept for the Carnarvon Basin.

The Linda prospect comprises an interpreted Biggada submarine slope fan deposit of Jurassic age deposited along the eastern margin of the Carnarvon Basin. The prospect has a distinctive seismic character which comprises a thick wedge of Jurassic sediments deposited basin ward of the Gipsy/Rose/Lee discoveries.
No other well has penetrated this type of seismic response, and several follow up leads and prospects have been identified. Early estimates were that the well could up to 55 mm barrels, however, if the well encounters further hydrocarbons that is likely to be increased significantly.

Participants are Apache (68.5 %), KUFPEC Australia (19.2771 %) and Tap Oil (12.2229 %).
