Abstract

Union-Kern-A.O.G. Cabawin East No. 1 was drilled by Union Oil Development Corporation, Kern County Land Company, and Australian Oil and Gas Corporation Limited in the Surat Basin, Queensland, 4.8 miles on a bearing 0800 from Cabawin No. 1 Well. The test was undertaken to investigate the possibility that the sub-commercial oil-bearing sand in Cabawin No. 1 might have a thicker development towards the east. The well was spudded in on 18th July, 1961, and penetrated a veneer of Tertiary; the Roma, Blythesdale, Walloon and Bundamba Formations of the Great Artesian Group; and the Cabawin, Kianga, and Back Creek Formations of the Bowen Group. Minor gas shows were encountered in coaly strata in the Blythesdale and Walloon Formations. Several small methane gas shows were indicated in sandstones of the Blythesdale, Walloon, and Bundamba Formations. Some very small gas showings were obtained through the Cabawin, Kianga and Back Creek Formations. Scattered oil fluorescence was noted from 6370 feet to total depth at 12,091 feet, but there were no important shows. The well indicated that the producing Kianga sand of Cabawin No. 1 was too silty in the Cabawin East location to be a reservoir. Cabawin East No. 1 was abandoned on 17th October, 1961.
