Abstract

A,A.O. Pickanjinnie No. 1 was drilled by Associated Australian Oilfields N.L. on a seismic "high" near Pickanjinnie, approximately 20 miles east of Roma. Drilling was commenced on 27th May, 1960, and was completed on 12th July, 1960, at a total depth of 5213 feet. The drilling contractor was Mines Administration Pty Limited, and the rig used was a National T-32. A full programme of logging, testing and coring was undertaken. The well was drilled in Mesozoic sediments to4490 feet; the Roma, Blythesdale, Walloon, Bundamba, Moolayember and Pickanjinnie Formations were penetrated in this section. The Permian Latemore Formationwas then encountered beneath a slight unconformity separating this formation from the overlying Mesozoic rocks. The Timbury Hills Formation, (1) Devonian, taken as local basement, was penetrated at 4835 feet and continued to total depth. Eight formation tests were run, the results of which are summarized in Appendix 7. During the test of the interval 3976 - 4368 feet, over a period of 45 hours, gas flowed at a rate of 6,5 MMcf/D on one inch surface bean. The well was plugged from 4520 feet to total depth, filled with mud and capped, and completed as a gas producer on 29th July, 1960. The results of the velocity survey of Pickanjinnie No. 1, made on 12th July, 1960, have modified the interpretation of an extensive seismic programme carried out in the region.
