Drover - 01 Exploration Well

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to carry out test drilling for hydrocarbons near the boundary of Lesueur National Park, inland from Jurien Bay.

The proposal would be situated on farmland adjacent to the National Park and the well would be drilled vertically (no deviated or horizontal drilling is proposed) with the surface location of the well approximately 200 metres from the National Park boundary and bottom hole location approximately 350 metres from the National Park boundary. The drilling would be a depth of approximately 2,350 metres below ground level and would include hydraulic fracture stimulation and flaring of gas. The proposal does not involve drilling or hydraulic fracture stimulation under the National Park.
