In addition, the partners have lifted Cliff Head oil production capacity to about 10,000 barrels of oil per day, as a result of the recent well workover completions. Actual output is 9500bopd due to current trucking restrictions.
Not far away, the Roc Oil-led joint venture is using the Premium Wilcraft jack-up rig to drill the Dunsborough-1 well in WA-286-P, which spudded on Thursday night.
Dunsborough-1 is about 25km northwest of the program’s first well, Frankland-1, which was plugged and abandoned as a gas discovery. The second well, Perseverance-1, met a similar fate.
Interests in WA-286-P are Roc (37.5%), AWE Oil (27.5%), Wandoo (24%), Arc (6%) and CIECO Exploration and Production (5%).
