Easternwell to conduct drilling operations at Otway Basin

Easternwell will conduct drilling operations at Otway Basin in South Australia as part of a joint venture between Rawson Oil and Gas (a subsidiary of Lakes Oil N.L.) and Vintage Energy.

The contract involves the drilling of one well using Easternwell’s Rig 106. With a mast capacity of 750,000 pounds, 1,600-barrel mud system and three 1,600 horsepower mud pumps, the rig’s capability extends from drilling deep, high pressure, high temperature tight gas holes, to plug and abandonment campaigns.

Broadspectrum’s Chief Executive Resources, Tim Phelan said: “We are excited to work with Rawson Oil and Gas and Vintage Energy on this project in the Otway Basin.”

“The technology of the rig sets it apart from other drilling rigs with enhanced mobility, unparalleled control, drilling hydraulics, enhanced safety and environmental features.”

“We look forward to drilling Nangwarry-1 well in the Penola Trough and progressing this exciting conventional gas exploration drilling opportunity.”

Easternwell is a subsidiary of Broadspectrum, providing innovation solutions across the social, defence, property, infrastructure, resources and industrial sectors.
