Gynatrix-1 Conventional Exploration Drilling Program

Proposal description: 

AWE Perth Pty Ltd proposes to undertake a conventional exploration drilling program located south-east of Dongara, Western Australia (WA). The Proposal includes the construction of a single deviated well, immediately adjacent (extending beneath) the Yardanogo Nature Reserve, and within MEPAU’s Production Licence L1. The intent of the Proposal is to evaluate the gas-bearing potential of the Gynatrix prospect by measuring the properties of the Kingia Sandstone and High Cliff Sandstone formations.

The Proposal will require clearing of up to 1.7 ha of native vegetation within a development footprint of 5.2 ha for the well site infrastructure and access track construction. As the Proposal is targeting conventional resources, no hydraulic fracture stimulation is proposed.
