The well is located about 12 km ESE of the Pluto-1 discovery in license WA-34-L, Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia.
The well reached a total depth of 3,285 metres. The discovery has been confirmed by wireline logging, including the establishment of a gas pressure gradient and the recovery of gas samples to surface.
Woodside is the operator and 90 % equity owner of WA-34-L. Woodside has a 100 % equity interest in the Xeres-1 well and Woodside’s joint venture participants in WA-34-L, Tokyo Gas and Kansai Electric, each have the right to acquire a 5 % equity interest in the well.
