Global Oil and Gas (GLV) and Prominence Energy’s (PRM) joint venture (JV) partner, Western Gas, is set to begin drilling the reservoir sand section at the Sasanof-1 well.

Sasanof-1 lies within the prospect of the same name in Western Australia’s North West Shelf.

GLV this morning said a marine riser and well control Blow Out Preventer (BOP) had been installed in the project area, connecting the drill rig to the Sasanof-1 High-Pressure Wellhead Housing, and the system was currently being pressure and function tested.

On completion of this testing, the bottom hole drilling assembly will be run in hole to drill out the shoe track cement, after which the JV partners will conduct integrity tests.

This will enable Western Gas to push on with drilling of the 12-and-a-quarter-inch target hole section from the current depth of 2072 metres to around 2500 metres.

Global Oil and Gas said it expected drilling through the target reservoir sand section to occur over the weekend.

Western Gas holds the majority 52.5 per cent interest in Sasanof-1, while Global Oil and Gas holds 25 per cent, Prominence Energy 12.5 per cent, and London Stock Exchange-listed Clontarf Energy 10 per cent.

Last month, Western Gas announced mobilisation activities had begun for the commencement of drilling in the area.

According to GLV, the reservoir is predicted to be a series of coarsening upward sandstone cycles with a gross thickness of 80 metres at the well location.

Global Oil and Gas shares were up 10.5 per cent trading at 2.1 cents at 3:06 am GMT, while Prominence Energy shares were up 7 per cent trading at 0.8 cents at the same time.
