Presentation Abstract:

Reids Dome Revisited; New Gas in Old Places

Reids Dome was first drilled in 1954 by Australian Oil Exploration Ltd in the search for oil. The AOE-1 well blew out due to encountering shallow gas, but was eventually drilled to 2761m. A subsequent well, AOE-2 failed to find gas and over the following years 15 wells were drilled in a bid to firm up the shallow gas discovery. Unfortunately, all bar one failed to deliver additional volumes. All this changed in 2018 when State Gas proposed drilling to test the CSG potential of the Reid’s Dome Beds coal measures. The journey from stranded gas to new resources holds many lessons for explorationists and investors alike.
