 Preliminary Results from Velkerri 76 S2-1 Well – Very Encouraging

 

15 October 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to announce that drilling of the Velkerri 76 S2-1 vertical appraisal well (“Velkerri 76”) has been completed, with the well drilled to a vertical total depth (“TD”) of 2,129 metres in the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, Northern Territory, Australia with our joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited.

Preliminary evaluation of the Velkerri-76 well is very encouraging and confirms:

  • The presence of four prospective intervals within the Amungee Member (formerly known as the Middle Velkerri), the A, AB, B and C shales, as established in the Amungee NW-1 / 1H, Beetaloo W-1 and Kalala S-1 wells.
  • The continuation of the regionally pervasive Amungee Member within the Velkerri Formation towards the eastern flank of the Beetaloo Sub-Basin approximately 78 kilometres from the Amungee NW-1H and 73 kilometres from the Beetaloo W-1 wells.
  • The Amungee Member is likely within the wet gas maturity window as evidenced by mud gas data during drilling.

93 metres of continuous conventional core was acquired in the Velkerri B and AB shales and extensive wireline logging data was collected to enable detailed formation evaluation of the prospective zones within the Amungee Member. The diagnostic fracture injection test (DFIT) is to be carried out shortly and will provide further understanding for future appraisal of the Velkerri wet gas play.

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“The preliminary drilling results at Velkerri 76, together with the revised normalised gas flow rate equivalent to 5 MMscf/d at Amungee NW-1H announced in September 2021, is really exciting news for Falcon shareholders as attention shifts to future activity in the Beetaloo.

Falcon is in a prime position within the Beetaloo Sub-Basin with significant areal exposure to the Velkerri shales across a range of maturity windows, as established by the results from the 5 wells drilled in the work programme to date.

This further development at Velkerri 76 emphasises the ever growing significance of the Velkerri play.

This is another very encouraging development for the nationally-important Beetaloo Sub-Basin and, with results  to come from flow testing of two horizontal wells at the neighbouring Santos-operated blocks, which are also targeting the Velkerri play, we see now as a key period in the step towards commercialisation of the Beetaloo.”

Advisory regarding oil and gas information

Any references in this news release to initial production rates are useful in confirming the presence of hydrocarbons; however, such rates are not determinative of the rates at which such wells will continue production and decline thereafter and are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or ultimate recovery. While encouraging, readers are cautioned not to place reliance on such rates in calculating the aggregate production for Falcon. Such rates are based on field estimates and may be based on limited data available at this time.

Contingent resource estimates are those quantities of gas (produced gas minus carbon dioxide and inert gasses) that are potentially recoverable from known accumulations, but which are not yet considered commercially recoverable due to the need for additional delineation drilling, further validation of deliverability and original gas in place, and confirmation of prices and development costs. There is uncertainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources. For additional information relating to contingent resource estimates in respect of the Amungee NW-1H Velkerri B Shale Gas Pool which were prepared by an Origin employee and a Qualified Reserves and Resources Evaluator effective as of February 15, 2017, please refer to Falcon’s Annual Information Form dated April 26, 2021, which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 Update

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon” or the “Company”)

 Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 Update

7 October 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) notes that production testing has now been completed and the well shut in at Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 (“Kyalla 117”) in the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, Northern Territory, Australia with our joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited.

As noted in the Company’s press release on 20 July 2021, while Kyalla 117 flowed liquids-rich gas without assistance for intermittent periods, production was not sustained and there were indications of a potential downhole flow restriction.

On 14 September, coil tubing operations recommenced at Kyalla 117. No apparent restriction or blockage was identified in the production casing. Following a nitrogen lift, the well was able to flow unassisted at rates between 0 (i.e. rates too small to measure) and 1.5 MMcsfd for five days before loading up with water. Gas compositions data are not yet available but gas specific gravity data is similar to that measured during the previous phase of testing. Trace condensate was also observed.

Further analysis will be undertaken, including additional core analysis and well design considerations, to enable a conclusion to be reached on the results from operations at Kyalla 117, which will inform the future approach to further drilling and testing of the Kyalla play in the Beetaloo Sub-basin.

The purpose of the current exploration campaign was to collect data across the three primary plays within the permits: Velkerri dry gas, Velkerri liquids rich, and Kyalla liquids rich. Despite the challenges, the Kyalla remains a viable target within the Beetaloo. Kyalla 117 was the first horizontal well targeting the Kyalla and achieved its primary technical objective of demonstrating liquids rich gas flow potential of the Kyalla.

 Recap on the gas composition

The initial analysis of natural gas by gas chromatography confirmed a liquids-rich gas stream low in CO2 as follows:

  • C1 = 65.03 mol%
  • C2 = 18.72 mol%
  • C3 = 8.37 mol%
  • iC4 = 1.29 mol%
  • nC4 = 2.03 mol%
  • C5+ = 2.73 mol%
  • CO2 = 0.91 mol%
  • N2 = 0.92 mol%

The elevated C3+ gas component of 14.42 mol%, confirmed the Lower Kyalla Shale as a liquids-rich gas play. Gas composition data also support the view that the Kyalla gas stream will have elevated LPG and condensate yields.

 This announcement contains inside information.

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“The information collected from this first horizontal well drilled in the Kyalla liquids-rich play, including the elevated liquids component, confirmed that the Kyalla remains an attractive target for further appraisal. Our immediate focus will now turn to the Velkerri play area where we are currently drilling a new exploration well in the potentially liquids-rich flank of the basin; an area of key interest for the Beetaloo Sub-basin. We look forward to updating the market as soon as the results from this well are available”

Amungee NW-1H – Normalised Gas Flow Rate Equivalent to 5 MMscf/d per 1,000m Horizontal

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon”)

 Amungee NW-1H –  Normalised Gas Flow Rate Equivalent to 5 MMscf/d per 1,000m Horizontal

 3 September 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to provide results of the production log test at the Amungee NW-1H well (“Amungee”). The results suggest a normalised gas flow rate equivalent of between 5.2-5.8 MMscf/d per 1,000m of horizontal section.

Amungee is located in the Beetaloo Sub-basin, Northern Territory, Australia and the testing conducted is part of the 2021 work programme which is operated by Falcon’s joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited (“Origin”).

 Amungee Background

  • Located in Exploration Permit 98, approximately 60 kilometres east of Daly Waters, just south of the Carpentaria Highway.
  • It was the first horizontal well to be drilled and first well to be fracked with Falcon’s JV partner and operator, Origin.
  • In November 2015, the JV successfully drilled the well to a total measured depth of 3,808m, including a 1,100m horizontal section.
  • In September 2016, 11 hydraulic stimulation stages were completed along the horizontal section in the Middle Velkerri B shale zone.
  • In December 2016, a 57-day extended production test (“EPT”) was completed, with production averaging 1.10 MMscf/d.
  • In February 2017, the Results of Evaluation of the Discovery and Preliminary Estimate of Petroleum in Place were published for the Velkerri B Shale Gas Pool, confirming a gross contingent resource of 6.6 TCF, 1.46 TCF net to Falcon, full details are contained in Falcon’s AIF.

Details of Amungee Testing

  • The well was successfully put back on production testing on 7 August 2021.
  • Initial flow rates during the first 48 hours of testing ranged between 2 – 4 MMscf/d with rates averaging 1.23 MMscf/d over the first 23 days.
  • A PLT was run on 19 August 2021 to 3,098mMD, just prior to the casing deformation at 3,112mMD.
  • The PLT data confirms that:
    • Only 5-15% of the production came from stages 1-7 beyond the casing deformation point at 3,112 mMD.
    • 85-95 % of the production came from stages 8-11 spanning a 200m horizontal section, prior to the casing deformation.
  • The low contribution from stages 1-7 is likely the result of a restriction caused by the casing deformation or the plugs having not milled out, or both.
  • Conclusion: stages 8-11 may be representative of the deliverability that can be achieved within the Middle Velkerri B Shale at Amungee.
  • The PLT test results equate to a normalised gas flow rate of between 5.2-5.8 MMscf/d per 1,000m of horizontal section.
  • A typical future production well would be likely to have a horizontal production section up to three kilometres.
  • The result validates the decision to undertake a second EPT in order to run a PLT.

 Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“With our unique and extensive position in the Beetaloo Sub-basin, this is really exciting news for Falcon shareholders and this significant development provides line of sight to the commercialisation of the Beetaloo, for which we remain carried for further activity.

A recent report by an industry analyst suggests that gas flows greater than 3MMscf/d from a 1,000m horizontal well are required to demonstrate the commerciality of the Beetaloo. Not only does this test result significantly exceed these parameters and significantly increase our assessment of the Velkerri dry gas play, but it also puts the Beetaloo on a par with other shale gas basins in North America.

While we wait for further news from our operations at Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 and Velkerri 76 S2-1, we look forward to working with our JV partner, Origin, in establishing the next phase of work on the Middle Velkerri B Shale.

With other drilling activity in neighbouring Santos-operated blocks targeting the Velkerri dry gas play, this is an important moment for the nationally significant Beetaloo Sub-basin.”

Advisory regarding oil and gas information

Any references in this news release to initial production rates are useful in confirming the presence of hydrocarbons; however, such rates are not determinative of the rates at which such wells will continue production and decline thereafter and are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or ultimate recovery. While encouraging, readers are cautioned not to place reliance on such rates in calculating the aggregate production for Falcon. Such rates are based on field estimates and may be based on limited data available at this time.

Contingent resource estimates are those quantities of gas (produced gas minus carbon dioxide and inert gasses) that are potentially recoverable from known accumulations, but which are not yet considered commercially recoverable due to the need for additional delineation drilling, further validation of deliverability and original gas in place, and confirmation of prices and development costs. There is uncertainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources. For additional information relating to contingent resource estimates in respect of the Amungee NW-1H Velkerri B Shale Gas Pool which were prepared by an Origin employee and a Qualified Reserves and Resources Evaluator effective as of February 15, 2017, please refer to Falcon’s Annual Information Form dated April 26, 2021, which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Any references in this news release to initial production rates are useful in confirming the presence of hydrocarbons; however, such rates are not determinative of the rates at which such wells will continue production and decline thereafter and are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or ultimate recovery. While encouraging, readers are cautioned not to place reliance on such rates in calculating the aggregate production for Falcon. Such rates are based on field estimates and may be based on limited data available at this time.

Contingent resource estimates are those quantities of gas (produced gas minus carbon dioxide and inert gasses) that are potentially recoverable from known accumulations, but which are not yet considered commercially recoverable due to the need for additional delineation drilling, further validation of deliverability and original gas in place, and confirmation of prices and development costs. There is uncertainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources. For additional information relating to contingent resource estimates in respect of the Amungee NW-1H Velkerri B Shale Gas Pool which were prepared effective as of February 15, 2017, please refer to Falcon’s Annual Information Form dated April 26, 2021, which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

2021 Work Programme Update – Beetaloo Sub-Basin

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon” or the “Company”)

 2021 Work Programme Update – Beetaloo Sub-Basin

 

 20 July 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) provides an update to the 2021 work programme.

As noted in the Company’s press release on 22 June 2021, operations recommenced at Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 (“Kyalla 117”) in the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, Northern Territory, Australia with our joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited.

Activity has focussed on the continued clean-up of Kyalla 117 in preparation for extended production testing, using nitrogen to support operations.

This has allowed the Kyalla 117 well to begin flowing again without assistance for intermittent periods, however, production has not been sustained and there is evidence of a potential downhole flow restriction.

Operations will now be temporarily paused while the cause of the restriction is investigated, the results of which will inform the development of a new go-forward plan for Kyalla 117.

In the meantime, the JV’s focus will continue on other elements of the work programme. The JV remains on track to drill the Velkerri 76 well and commence a further extended production test at Amungee NW 1H in the coming weeks.

This announcement contains inside information.

Commencement of the 2021 Work Programme – Beetaloo Sub-Basin

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon”)

 Commencement of the 2021 Work Programme – Beetaloo Sub-Basin

 

 22 June 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2021 work programme, starting with operations at Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 (“Kyalla 117”) in the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, Northern Territory, Australia with our joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited (“Origin”).

On-site operations at Kyalla 117 have begun, with rigging up now complete, and clean-up operations resumed.  These operations, if successful, will result in an extended production test (“EPT”) being carried out to determine the expected longer-term performance of the well.

Further details on the 2021 work programme, including proposed activity at Velkerri 76 and Amungee NW 1H, are set out below.

 Kyalla 117

Kyalla Shale Play Summary

  • Liquids rich gas play, which has only been identified in the joint venture acreage.
  • Material play fairway > 3,000 km2 with multi TCF potential.
  • Liquids rich play with two prospective stacked targets in the gas window, and one in the oil window.

 Results to date

  • As announced on 19 January 2021, Origin submitted a notification of discovery and an initial report of discovery to the Northern Territory Government.
  • Unassisted gas flow rates ranging between 0.4-0.6 MMscf/d were recorded over seventeen hours, which are preliminary indications of well performance, and an EPT is required to determine the longer-term performance of Kyalla 117.

 Velkerri 76

Velkerri Shale Play Summary

  • Largest play fairway in the Beetaloo with four prospective stacked targets.
  • Predominantly dry gas with OGIP > 500+ TCF.
  • Liquids rich gas fairways on basin flanks with multi TCF potential.
  • Multiple successful tests within the dry gas window (Amungee NW 1H, Tanumbrini1, Shenandoah 1A).

2021 work programme includes:

  • Targeting the Velkerri play along the south-eastern flank of the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, which is predicted to be in a liquids rich gas window.
  • Drill a vertical pilot well to acquire core, run logs and perform diagnostic fracture injection test data across the Velkerri.

 Amungee NW 1H

Results to date

  • On 22 December 2016 Falcon announced that, following a 57-day EPT of the well, production averaged 1.10 MMscf/d.
  • On 15 February 2017 Falcon announced that Origin had submitted the Results of Evaluation of the Discovery and Preliminary Estimate of Petroleum in Place for the Amungee NW-1H Velkerri B Shale Gas Pool to the Northern Territory Government amounting to a gross contingent resource of 6.6 TCF, 1.46 TCF net to Falcon.

2021 work programme includes:

  • An extended production test and production log to confirm zonal contribution, i.e. determine if all frack stages contributed to the initial EPT conducted in 2016.

 

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“The commencement of operations at Kyalla 117 is an exciting first step for the planned 2021 work programme which will cover three different plays in the Beetaloo providing key information that will help determine the future appraisal and development programme. We look forward to providing results as soon as they become available.”

22 February 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) has agreed to assign its working interest in three gross producing wells and one gross shut-in well and associated infrastructure in Alberta, Canada to a large Canadian-based company.

These wells have been loss making and have generated minimal revenues to Falcon over the last number of years. Collective revenues for nine months to September 2020 were US$3,000 and the associated costs for the same period were US$6,000. For the 12 months to December 2019 there were revenues of US$5,000 and costs of US$10,000.

Under the terms of the assignment, Falcon has agreed to pay a total of CAD$37,000 to cover its net working interest share of the abandonment and reclamation obligations of the wells and associated infrastructure.

Gas Composition Data Confirm Kyalla Liquids Rich Gas Play

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon”)

 Gas Composition Data Confirm Kyalla Liquids Rich Gas Play

 

 22 January 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to announce the following update on the first gas composition data obtained during the 17-hour unassisted flow period of the Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 well (“Kyalla 117”) in the Beetaloo Sub-basin, Australia.

The initial analysis of natural gas by gas chromatography confirms a liquids-rich gas stream low in CO2 as follows:

  • C1 = 65.03 mol%
  • C2 = 18.72 mol%
  • C3 = 8.37 mol%
  • iC4 = 1.29 mol%
  • nC4 = 2.03 mol%
  • C5+ = 2.73 mol%
  • CO2 = 0.91 mol%
  • N2 = 0.92 mol%

The elevated C3+ gas component of 14.42 mol%, which meets our pre-drill expectations, confirms the Lower Kyalla Shale as a liquids-rich gas play. Gas composition data also support the view that the Kyalla gas stream will have elevated LPG and condensate yields.

As announced on 19 January 2021, longer term measures will be put in place to flow back sufficient hydraulic fracture stimulation water to allow the Kyalla 117 to flow continually without assistance. This work is expected to commence at the start of the dry season in Q2 2021 and if successful will allow an extended production test (“EPT”) of between 60 and 90 days to commence.

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“The initial gas composition data are very encouraging providing a strong indication for the liquids rich gas play in the Kyalla formation. We will update the market when operations recommence at Kyalla 117 at the beginning of the dry season in Q2 2021.”

Notification of Discovery – Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon”)

 Notification of Discovery – Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2

 19 January 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to announce that Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a subsidiary of Origin Energy Resources Limited (“Origin”), our Joint Venture partner, has submitted a notification of discovery and an initial report on discovery (“Notification of Discovery”) to the Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade of the Northern Territory (“DITT”) on the Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 well (“Kyalla 117”) in the Beetaloo Sub-basin, Australia. The Notification of Discovery is a requirement under s64(1) of the Petroleum Act 1984 (Northern Territory) and the NT Guidelines for reporting a petroleum discovery.

Details of the Notification of Discovery from Origin to the DITT are as follows:

  • The Notification of Discovery is supported by preliminary production test data and petrophysical modelling.
  • This follows the introduction of nitrogen to lift the fluids in Kyalla 117, which has enabled Kyalla 117 to flow unassisted for a period of seventeen hours.
  • Unassisted gas flow rates ranging between 0.4-0.6 MMscf/d over seventeen hours were recorded.
  • Flow back of hydraulic fracture stimulation water to surface over the same period, averaged between 400-600 bbl/d.
  • Initial analysis suggests a liquid-rich gas composition with less than 1% CO2.
  • Condensate shows were also observed.

Further Information

  • These early-stage flow rates are preliminary indications of well performance, and an extended production test (“EPT”) will be required to determine the long-term performance of Kyalla 117.
  • Longer-term measures will be put in place to flow back sufficient hydraulic fracture stimulation water to allow Kyalla 117 to flow continually without assistance and enable an EPT to continue in the coming months during the dry season.
  • A further update will be provided when production testing has concluded, and detailed evaluation has been undertaken, expected to be in Q2 2021.

Australian Government

The Australian Government announced last week that it would invest A$217m in economic enabling infrastructure and upgrades to remote roads in the Northern Territory.  These upgrades will provide quality infrastructure to support gas development and other industries in and around the Beetaloo Sub-basin. This is in addition to the A$50m being provided by the Australian Government to accelerate exploration activity in the Beetaloo announced last December.

 This announcement contains inside information.

 

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“The Notification of Discovery and Initial Report issued by Origin mark an encouraging development and the results to date meet our objective to flow liquids rich gas from the Kyalla formation.

We look forward to our operator, Origin, putting in place longer term measures to flow back sufficient hydraulic fracture stimulation water to allow the well to flow continually without assistance and enable production testing to occur in the coming months during the dry season.

In addition to this we welcome the news from the Australian Government to invest a further A$217m in the Northern Territory in infrastructure to support gas development and other industries in and around the Beetaloo Sub-basin.

We will update the market when production testing has concluded, and a detailed evaluation has been undertaken.”

Australian Government Announcement – Beetaloo Strategic Plan

By | Press Releases

 Australian Government Announcement – Beetaloo Strategic Plan

 17 December 2020 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to note the announcement today by the Australian Government that it plans to provide up to A$50 million to accelerate exploration activity in the Beetaloo sub-basin. Falcon holds a 22.5% interest in 4.6 million gross acres in exploration permits (EP76, EP98 and EP117) covering the most prospective core area of the Beetaloo sub-basin.

The funding is designed to fast-track drilling by providing grants to cover 25% of eligible exploration costs, capped at A$7.5 million per well and three wells per exploration venture. The funding will be put towards exploration that occurs before June 2022.

The Northern Territory’s Geological Survey estimates that the sub-basin could hold more than 200,000 petajoules of gas (190 Tcf) and that, even if a very conservative 10% of that gas was recovered, it could still supply Australia’s domestic gas demand for more than 10 years.

A copy of the press release is available at https://www.minister.industry.gov.au/ministers/pitt/media-releases/beetaloo-strategic-plan-will-unlock-gas-jobs-and-development.

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

 The announcement by the Australian Government highlights the strategic and economic importance of the Beetaloo sub-basin which it believes has the potential to be a world-class gas resource, transform the Northern Territory economy and generate 6,000 jobs by 2040.

 We look forward to continue working with our partners, Origin, and the state and federal governments and other stakeholders towards the successful development of the sub-basin.”

Ends.

(“Falcon”)

Operational Update – Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2

 

10 December 2020 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) provides an update on exploration activity in the Beetaloo Sub-basin, Northern Territory, Australia following the successful hydraulic stimulation of the Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 well (“Kyalla 117”).

As announced on 25 November 2020, operations were being planned to re-enter Kyalla 117 with coiled tubing and apply nitrogen lift to lower the pressure in the wellbore and to assist with achieving and sustaining gas breakthrough. If successful, this would allow extended production testing to commence. The timing of operations was carefully considered as the wet season approaches, with health, safety, environmental and cost considerations in mind.

The JV has decided to execute operations without delay with all of the necessary equipment and consumables for the nitrogen lift being prepared to mobilise to the well site.

Further updates will be provided to the market as appropriate.

 

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“The decision to execute operations without delay is really good news and we look forward to updating the market as information from operations is available”
