Metgasco sidetracked in Clarence Moreton

METGASCO says fishing operations on the Corella-P18 multi-lateral CSG well, in the Clarence-Moreton Basin, to recover a stuck drill string have been unsuccessful and a sidetrack will now be drilled to complete the laterals.

The company said drilling of the inseam section stopped at 785m when the drill pipe became stuck, with remedial attempts to clear the blockage and recover the drill string unsuccessful.
