Galilee Energy has successfully installed electric submersible pumps (ESPs) in the Glenaras-10L and Glenaras-12L wells.
Part of Galilee’s Glenaras Gas Project in ATP 2019 (formerly ATP 529) in the Galilee Basin in Queensland, the Glenaras-10L and -12L multilateral drilling campaigns were completed by the Easternwell Rig 101 earlier this month.
Over the past week, the completions rig successfully installed downhole ESPs in the two wells.
Concurrent with drilling operations, all surface facility skids have been constructed and are ready for installation.
The water production flowline connecting the pilot to the Glenaras holding pond has also been constructed and tied-in at surface.
With completion activities finished, the surface facilities and lease flowlines will be installed with production start-up remaining on schedule for mid-June.
The pilot will be on production for an extended period to de-water and lower pressure in the surrounding coal to achieve gas flow, which is expected to take 4-6 months.
The Glenaras Gas Project is located in the highly-prospective ATP 2019 (formerly ATP 529) permit in western Queensland and covers an area of approximately 4,000 sq km.
The project area contains a significant coal seam gas contingent resource position in the Betts Creek coals with a 1C of 308 PJ, a 2C of 2,508 PJ and a 3C of 5,314 PJ.
The permit is 100 per cent owned by Galilee Energy.
