Located in TL/2, 22km north-northeast of Airlie Island the well reached a total depth of 2,705m and encouraging hydrocarbon shows were reported whilst drilling through the primary objective (Lower Barrow Group).
However, subsequent analysis of wireline and formation pressure data indicated the reservoir to be predominantly tight and therefore not commercially viable.
