Wombat frac underway, flowing gas

The Lakes Oil fracture stimulation on the Wombat-2 well has progressed strongly with early flows from the perforated interval 1469 to 1476m, which was designed to stimulate a sandstone reservoir intersected between 1454 and 1509m.

A total of 80,000lbs of ceramic proppant was placed using 50,000 gallons of nitrogen foam frac fluid at an average surface pressure of 5,200 psi. Currently the well is returning fracing fluids to surface with an estimated gas flow of 2.2 million cubic feet per day which is being flared at the surface.

The gas flow rate is expected to improve as the production of frac fluids decreases.

A full assessment of the well will be made after these fluids have been ‘unloaded’ and gas is flowing to surface.

The Wombat wells are located in PEP 157 with an overriding royalty of 5% of the wellhead value of any hydrocarbon production payable to Roma Petroleum N.L.
