In October, PESA QLD is delighted to bring you a presentation from Mr Mark Casey, Development Manager at Senex Energy. Mark will be delivering a case study of an innovative horizontal well drilling programme applied to the Growler oilfield, in the Eromanga Basin. The Technical Lunch will be held at the Brisbane Hilton Hotel, in the “Victoria’s Room” with access from the Hilton Main Foyer on level 6.
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.
