Activity Description
SapuraOMV Upstream (Western Australia) Pty Ltd (SapuraOMV) plans to drill a single exploration well (Kanga-1) in Permit WA-412-P, located within the Dampier sub-basin in Commonwealth waters. The Kanga-1 well is located approximately 163 km north of the town of Karratha in water depths of approximately 147m. An operational area has been defined within Permit WA-412-P, which represents a 4 km x 4 km area centred around the Kanga-1 well.

The Kanga-1 well will be drilled using a semi-submersible mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU) which will be anchored to the seabed. Anchor handling vessels and/ or offshore multi purpose vessels will provide support to the MODU throughout the drilling campaign. The activity has been planned to occur in 2022 for a duration of 40 days. The exact timing of the activity is dependent upon MODU and vessel availability, weather conditions and the receipt of the required statutory approvals. The activity will be undertaken 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
