Ms Libby Howitt
Apache proposes to drill the Gump-1 exploration well to test the depth and reservoir quality of the Havarti Sandstone formation using a using a jack up rig - mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU). The expected hydrocarbon is a light crude oil.
The proposed well is located in a water depth of approximately 50 m, lies approximately 7.5 km from Trimouille Island (Montebello Group), 85 km from the closest mainland coast and 123 km from Dampier (closest population centre).
The Activity is expected to take approximately 15-22 days to complete.
The timing of the drilling operation is dependent on rig availability and weather conditions; therefore the EP covers drilling Gump-1 well in any season. Currently, the drilling of the exploration well is scheduled to commence in Q2 of 2016.
