Operator of the BassGas joint venture, Origin Energy has announced that the Yolla-6 production well has reached total depth of 3,653m below rotary table. This follows the successful spudding of the well earlier this year.
The well was drilled using the West Telesto jack up rig, which will move back to complete drilling of the Yolla-5 well. The Yolla-5 and Yolla-6 wells are being drilled as part of Stage 2 of the BassGas Mid Life Enhancement (MLE) project.
Yolla-6 will be cased and completed before being commissioned for production via the BassGas production facility at Lang Lang, Victoria.
The wells are being drilled from the Yolla Platform which is located in Bass Strait, approximately 140km off shore from Kilcunda, Victoria.
