Presentation Abstract:
The successful Growler 15 well was Senex’s first application of Horizontal drilling in the Cooper Basin Western Flank in a technically challenging environment facing sweep, depletion and multiple subsurface targets. Given the challenges there was an extensive planning phase and an intense execution period including geo-steering to successfully place the well. The presentation will summarise some of the rationale, well planning, execution, initial insights and what it means for future development in the Western Flank.
