Central Petroleum Limited (CTP.AX) Palm Valley 12 Drilling Update
Brisbane, Australia, May 10, 2022 - (ABN Newswire) - Central Petroleum Limited (ASX:CTP) (HAM:C9J) (OTCMKTS:CNPTF) advises that on 9 May 2022, the Palm Valley 12 (PV12) well in OL3, Southwest of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, had reached a depth of 1,103m at 0600 hrs ACST. In the past week a total of 283m of drilling has occurred reaching the planned total depth for the 17.5" hole section at 1,103m on 5 May 2022.
Consequent to reaching total depth, the 13 3/8" casing has been run and cemented, the blowout preventer and surface equipment has been pressure tested and the well is anticipated to commence drilling ahead in 12 1/4" hole from 10 May 2022.
The PV12 well has two alternate objectives, consisting of a deeper gas exploration target or a shallower gas appraisal lateral that could become a production well. The primary exploration target is the Arumbera Sandstone at an anticipated depth of 3,560m.
The PV12 well is the first of a 2-well drilling program that also includes the Dingo-5 exploration / production well. Both wells are being drilled under joint ventures between Central (50% interest), New Zealand Oil & Gas Limited (ASX:NZO) (35% interest) and Cue Energy Resources Limited (ASX:CUE) (15% interest) and are scheduled to be completed this year.
