The well will be plugged and abandoned today.
Downlands South-1 is the second well of the Ausam Resources PL 119 and ATP 471P Bainbilla Block Farmin Stage 1 program. The previous well, Downslands-4, was a successful gas well and is being completed for production.
Upon release from Downlands South-1, the rig will be moved to drill Brynog-1 in the ATP 471P Bainbilla Block, the third and final well of the Ausam PL 119 and ATP 471P Bainbilla Block Stage 1 program.
