Mosaic puts pieces together at Fairymount-9

MOSAIC Oil has made a good start to its 2008 drilling program in the Surat-Bowen Basin, with the news its Fairymount-9 development well in PL 46 has discovered oil.

Spudded earlier this month, the well intersected oil and gas shows at similar depths to offset wells, Mosaic said.

Wireline logs indicate Fairmount-9 has encountered 5.4m of net oil pay between a depth of 2036.5m to 2050m.

"Importantly, the well encountered the sub-unit ‘B Sand' for the first time in the northern part of the field," Mosaic said.

"This unit is one of the oil productive sub-units in the southern part of the field and was previously encountered in Fairymount-3, Fairymount-5 and Fairymount-8 oil producer wells."

Now Mosaic plans to use the Century Rig 7 to case and complete the Fairymount-9 well, with the rod-insert pumping string to be run in either April or May.

Fairymount-9 is located about 300m north-northeast of the Fairymount-4 well which has produced to date over 205,000 barrels of oil.
