Omega spuds new gas well in Queensland’s Bowen Basin
Article originally published by Market Index.
- Omega has started drilling its Canyon-2 well in Bowen Basin, Queensland, as part of its Permian Deep Gas program.
- The program is considered key to the development of Omega’s estimated 3 trillion cubic feet of prospective gas resources and will prove the viability of gas finds in the Kianga Formation and coals in the Permian-aged rocks.
- Fracking program set to kick off later in 2023.
Omega (ASX: OMA) managing director Lauren Bennett hailed the important step as another milestone in helping to secure Australia’s energy security and phase out coal-fired power.
The Canyon-2 well in Bowen Basin, Central Queensland, will be drilled to approximately 3,600 metres with further work – including production testing – expected to be completed later this year.
