PESA SA/NT September Technical Luncheon

Strike Energy: Pushing the Boundaries on Permeability and Porosity

When: Thursday 26th September, 12pm for 12:30

Where: Ayers House, 288 North Tce, Adelaide

Speakers: Andrew Farley (Strike Energy)

Since relocating its headquarters to South Australia in 2017, Strike has continued to test the boundaries of assumed porosity and permeability depth limits. 2018 saw the execution of the Jaws project in the southern Cooper Basin, which deployed numerous advanced drilling, stimulation, completion and artificial lift technologies to deep coals of the Patchawarra Formation. Strike has just finished drilling the deepest onshore gas well in Australia at West Erregulla in the north Perth Basin. Evaluation of both is ongoing, however the West Erregulla discovery looks set to rival the nearby Waitsia field in both reservoir quality and resource size. Andrew will share with the audience an insight on the design and execution of both projects and a teaser of results to date.

Lunch will include a 2-course meal and drinks
