Santos will in May spud the appraisal well Dorado-2, testing the world-class Dorado offshore oil discovery in Western Australia. The company will then drill the Roc South-1 and Dorado-3 wells.
Carnarvon, Santos’ partner in the project, said in its quarterly report on Monday that the Dorado-2 appraisal well was expected to begin in May 2019 and would be the first of three wells planned in the 2019 drill campaign by the two companies.
The Dorado-2 well is targeting the hydrocarbon columns in a down-dip location from the Dorado-1 discovery. This will provide more information on the extent of the hydrocarbon accumulations and further calibrate the reservoir and fluid properties.
