Last Perth Basin wildcat spuds

Drilling of the last offshore wildcat in the Perth Basin multi-well drilling program, Vindara, has commenced. Following that, Cliff Head-4, an appraisal well, will be the last well to be drilled in the program.

With their last two offshore wildcat wells, Twin Lions and Mentelle, ending in disappointment, Cliff Head partners will be hoping for third time lucky with Vindara-1, which will be drilled to a total depth of 2000m and target Irwin River Coal Measures, High Cliff Sandstones and Wagina Sandstones.

Results from the drilling of Vindara-1 should be known by the weekend.

The junior explorers involved in this Perth Basin drilling include Roc Oil, Australian Worldwide Exploration, Wandoo Exploration, ARC Energy and Voyager Energy.
