Exploration Projects

Westgrove Deeps

The Westgrove Deeps project is a significant tight gas play targeting the lower Reids Dome Beds.

The play is located within a 1,200km2 area of interest in the Denison South tenement areas, including the recently awarded and 100% Denison Gas operated ATP2060 block. Initial focus for exploration has been in the PL44 Westgrove gas field area where the lower Reids Dome Beds were penetrated by the Westgrove 3 well drilled in 1963, with the well flowing gas to surface from sandstones at ~3,750m depth.

In late 2018, the joint venture drilled the Westgrove 9 well as a twin to the Westgrove 3 discovery. A modern set of exploration data was acquired with assessment of this new information indicative of a significant prospective tight gas resource in place over a gross section of approximately 1,200m.

The forward plan for Westgrove 9 is expected to include fracture stimulation and an extended production test of key reservoir intervals.
