Abstract

Planet Warrinilla North No. 1 Well was located approximately 32 miles south of Rolleston, and about 16-1/2 miles north of Planet Warrinilla No. 1 Well. The site was determined from an analysis of seismic data and was located on a culmination on the northern plunge of the Warrinilla Anticline in the Bowen Basin. Based on seismic control near the top of the Ingelara Formation, this structure is believed to have 120 feet of closure and an areal extent of six square miles. Drilling operations at Warrinilla North No. 1 were carried out between 28th July and 8th October 1963, after which production casing was set and further testing was undertaken between 10th-25th October. A full programme of logging, testing, and coring was carried out. The well passed through the Triassic Rewan Formation, and Permian beds which included the Bandanna Formation, Mantuan Productus Bed, Catherine Sandstone, Ingelara Formation, Aldebaran Sandstone, and Cattle Creek Formation. The well bottomed in the preCattle Creek fresh water beds at a depth of 6879 feet, and was abandoned on 25th October 1963. A number of gas shows were encountered in the well and although none of these proved commercial, much information was gathered both from the drilling of the well and from the evaluation testing that followed. A total of 23 drillstem tests was run. However, four of these were misruns. A maximum gas recovery of 162 000 cubic feet per day was obtained from the Aldebaran Sandstone. The well was drilled by Delta Drilling Company using a National 55 rig. Technical control at the well site was provided by N.A. Meyers of Cundill, Meyers and Associates, mud logging by Core Laboratories, Inc., and electrical logging by Schlumberger Seaco Inc. The test drilling operation at Planet Warrinilla NorthNo. 1 was subsidized under the Petroleum search Subsidy Act 1959-1961, from surface to total depth.
