Proteus-1 ST2 successfully flows condensate bearing gas


Progress Report 13



  • Flow rates measured up to 7.3 MMscf/d through 16/64" choke at 4457psi.
  • Condensate Gas ratios yielding best rates to date for Greater Poseidon Area at 19-22bbls/MMscf.
  • Karoon estimates production wells will flow at commercial rates, in excess of 100 MMscf/d.

    Proteus-1ST2 Test Results


    The Proteus-1ST2 exploration well, located within the Browse Basin has been production tested following the confirmation of a gas discovery on 30 August, 2013.


    The successful flow test of the Proteus-1ST2 well has produced a strong flow of condensate bearing gas with a maximum flow rate of 7.3 MMscf/d measured through a 16/64" choke with a flowing well head pressure of 4457psi.


    The test was conducted in 4-1/8” diameter wellbore over the entire open hole section between 4920-5250mRT in Jurassic aged rocks of the Plover and Montara Formations. In order to maintain hole
