Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our March Technical Evening Meeting as a joint event in collaboration with the Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia (PESA).

Waitsia Gas Field: A Play Opening Story

The discovery of the Waitsia Gas Field in 2014, the largest onshore gas discovery in Australia in over 40 years, opened up the Early Permian Kingia play for the Northern Perth Basin. Now at the cusp of a development drilling campaign set to deliver 250TJ/day through the new gas processing facility, this talk chronicles the journey of discovery and appraisal to full field development from the perspective of one geologist who was there from the beginning.

The Beharra Springs Deep discovery and future potential in the Perth Basin

Following the discovery of the prolific Waitsia Gas Field and the West Erregulla-2 discovery, Beharra Springs Deep 1 was another deep pool test targeting the Kingia formation below an existing gas field. The result confirmed the extension of the Kingia play further south in the basin and de-risked nearfield Kingia prospectivity. This talk summarises the Beharra Springs Deep 1 well result and offers an insight into the remaining Kingia prospectivity in the Mitsui and Beach acreage within the Perth Basin.
