Origin Energy Announces Divestment of Beetaloo Sub-Basin Interests

 

 19 September 2022 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) (“Falcon” or the “Company”) notes the media release issued today by its c. 98% subsidiary, Falcon Oil & Gas Australia Limited’s  joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited (“Origin”) relating to the divestment of their 77.5% interest in the Beetaloo Sub-basin exploration permits.

Under the terms of the Joint Operating Agreement entered into with Origin and announced on 2 May 2014 (as amended), Falcon Australia has a right of first refusal which allows it to notify Origin (within 30 days of any proposed change of control) of Falcon’s intention to acquire Origin’s 77.5% interest in the Beetaloo joint venture. The Board is reserving its legal position in respect of those rights. In the event that the Company seeks to exercise its rights under the Joint Operating Agreement, this would be classified as a reverse takeover pursuant to Rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies. The Board will now consider the impact of the decision by Origin on Falcon and will then decide what, if any, actions it intends to take. There is no guarantee that the Company will exercise such rights or that any transaction will occur.

Further information will be disclosed in due course.

Ends.

Operational Update – Beetaloo Sub-Basin

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon”)

 Operational Update – Beetaloo Sub-Basin

04 May 2022 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to provide an operational update on the Stage 3 work programme in the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, Northern Territory, Australia with its joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited (“Origin”).

As noted in Falcon’s press release published on 25 January 2022, this year will see Falcon and Origin progressing to the Stage 3 work programme of the restated Farm-Out Agreement. Following discussions with Origin, in order to maximise the impact of Stage 3 operations the joint venture has agreed to modify the Stage 3 programme announced previously, which will now include a step out location for one well.

Stage 3 Planned Work Programme includes:

  • Acquisition of a 58km line of high spec 2D seismic on the Amungee NW-1H well lease area;
  • Drilling one ~1,000 metre horizontal well on the Amungee NW-1H pad, targeting the Amungee Member (formerly knowns as the Middle Velkerri) B Shale;
  • Step out location approx. 10km from the Amungee NW-1H pad, drilling a vertical pilot and a ~1,000 metre horizontal well also targeting the Amungee Member B shale;
  • 15 stage fracture stimulation on both horizontal wells;
  • Extended production testing of between 90 and 180 days on each well;
  • As previously announced there will also be:
    • follow up core and log analysis of the very encouraging preliminary evaluation of the 2021 Velkerri 76 well results; and
    • further evaluation of the results of the Kyalla 117 N2-1H well to better understand the issues encountered during testing in 2021.

Stage 3 Drilling and 3D Programme Objectives:

  • The primary objective of the two wells is to:
    • Obtain a production rate over the first 30 days of between 2-3 MMscf/d to support a multi-well pilot programme in 2023/24.
  • Secondary objectives for the Stage 3 programme are to:
    • Achieve a drill duration of less than 45 days;
    • Characterise natural fracture network and complexity; and
    • Integrate well data with seismic data and assess merits of future 3D seismic surveys in the Beetaloo.

 Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“This is an extremely important period for the Beetaloo Sub-Basin and Falcon believes the modified work programme which now includes a step out location will provide further valuable evidence and help accelerate the programme towards a multi-well pilot programme in CY23/24.

The 2021 EPT and PLT at Amungee NW-1H provided a line of sight to achieving initial production rates in the range of 3+ MMscf/d per 1,000 metre laterals from the Amungee Member B Shale. Together with the large contiguous acreage position offering significant running room, the stacked prospective Amungee Member shale targets with multiple landing zones, and the proximity to the northern flank to integrate future wet gas play support a route to commerciality.

We will continue to update the market on this high-impact and extensive Stage 3 programme over the coming months.”

Ends.

Use of Funds

The Placing will add US$10 million to the Company’s cash balance of US$8.4 million as at 28 February 2022, which leaves Falcon in a strong financial position well ahead of future decisions on the Beetaloo project.

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“Falcon is very pleased that Bryan Sheffield of Sheffield Holdings LP has increased his strategic stake in the Company at this time. Bryan is a highly successful investor and has made significant returns in the US unconventional energy sector in the past. He was Founder of Parsley Energy Inc. (“PE”), an independent unconventional oil and gas producer in the Permian Basin, Texas and previously served as its Chairman and CEO.

PE was acquired for over US$7 billion by Pioneer Natural Resources Company (“Pioneer”), itself a leading independent oil and gas company and with the PE acquisition became a Permian pure play company. Pioneer has a current market capitalisation of c. US$60 billion.”

Bryan Sheffield of Sheffield Holdings LP commented:

‘‘Falcon and its partner have the largest acreage (4.6 million acres) position centred over the Beetaloo Sub-Basin.  The Beetaloo is emerging as a world class shale gas basin with stacked pay potential from several shale intervals. Flow tests from the B Shale of the Amungee Member have confirmed a productive dry gas system in place. Geologic and engineering data from test wells across the Sub- basin have similar properties to some of the highly successful shale gas plays in the United States. The Beetaloo Sub-Basin is still in the exploration and appraisal phase, but with continued good well results, Falcon is well positioned to become a key supplier of low carbon energy to Australia and to the world within a few short years. I am delighted to have this opportunity to acquire a significant interest in Falcon and gain exposure to their net 1 million acres in what may become one of the biggest shale plays in the world.’’

 Ends.

Planned Stage 3 Work Programme – Beetaloo Sub-Basin

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon”)

Planned Stage 3 Work Programme – Beetaloo Sub-Basin 

25 January 2022 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to provide details of the Stage 3 work programme in the Beetaloo Sub-Basin, Northern Territory, Australia with its joint venture partner, Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Origin Energy Limited (“Origin”).

2022 will see Falcon and Origin progressing to the Stage 3 work programme of the restated Farm-Out Agreement. , which will include  the drilling, fracture stimulation and extended production test of two horizontal wells.

Stage 3 Planned Work Programme includes:

  • acquisition of 40 km2 of 3D seismic survey on the Amungee NW-1H well lease area;
  • drilling two 2,000+ metre horizontal wells on the Amungee NW-1H pad, targeting the Amungee Member (formerly knowns as the Middle Velkerri) B Shale;
  • fracture stimulation of both horizontal wells;
  • extended production testing of between 90 and 180 days on each well;
  • follow up core and log analysis of the very encouraging preliminary evaluation of the 2021 Velkerri 76 well results; and
  • further evaluation of the results of the Kyalla 117 N2-1H well to better understand the issues encountered during testing in 2021.

Stage 3 Drilling and 3D Programme Objectives

  • The acquisition and interpretation of 3D seismic will be used to:
    • plan the drilling of the 2022 wells and any future horizontal wells in the area;
    • optimise horizontal well trajectories; and
    • assess the viability of future 3D surveys in the Basin.
  • The two horizontal wells are being designed to:
    • demonstrate scalability of the Amungee NW-1H results over longer laterals; and
    • establish operational and cost efficiencies by drilling more than one well from the same pad.

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“This is an extremely important period for the Beetaloo Sub-Basin and we are delighted to have confirmed a high-impact, extensive and really exciting work programme for the joint venture.

We will be focusing our attention on the Amungee Member B Shale, following the 2021 results at Amungee NW-1H, which suggested a normalised gas flow rate equivalent to around 5,000 Mscf/d per 1,000m of horizontal section; a potentially commercial flow rate. Falcon remains largely (circa 75%) carried for 2022, with the balance of costs being funded from existing resources. Positive results here will provide a further line of sight to the commercialisation of the Beetaloo and could lead to a pilot development program in 2023. Confirmation on the commencement  on the Stage 3 work programme will be provided in the coming months as scheduling is refined.

In addition to our own acreage, we also look forward to the gas flow results from the current testing of two wells in the neighbouring Santos-operated EP 161, also targeting the Amungee Member dry gas play. We expect these results to be communicated to the market shortly and believe that these will prove to be another important moment for the nationally significant Beetaloo Sub-Basin.”

Preliminary Petrophysics and Mud Gas Composition from Velkerri 76 S2-1 Well

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon” or the “Company”)

 Preliminary Petrophysics and Mud Gas Composition from Velkerri 76 S2-1 Well

 12 November 2021 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to provide details on the preliminary petrophysical interpretation and mud gas composition data from the Velkerri 76 S2-1 vertical appraisal well (“Velkerri 76”) 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.

On 15 October 2021, the Company announced that drilling of the Velkerri 76 well had been completed and preliminary evaluation of the results had been very encouraging.

The preliminary petrophysical interpretation of the Velkerri-76 wireline logs has now been carried out, which has confirmed positive indications in particular from the B shale of the Amungee Member (formerly known as the Middle Velkerri). Other intervals within the Amungee Member, also show positive indications, and further analysis will now be undertaken to confirm these results.

The Amungee Member B shale was the principal area of focus with Falcon’s operations at Amungee NW-1H and the results obtained to date compare very favourably to some of the most commercially successful shale plays in North America.  The Amungee Member B shale is also the focus of activities in the neighbouring Santos and Empire Resources operated blocks.

Mud gas composition data also provides evidence that the Amungee Member is within the wet gas maturity window and contains good LPG yields and high heating gas value.

Key information with respect to the preliminary petrophysics and mud gas composition of the Amungee Member B shale are included in the table below:

 

Amungee Member B Shale
Gross thickness (metres) 53.9
Total Porosity Ave. (%BV) 7.7
Total organic carbon Ave. (TOC, %wt) 4.3
C(mol%) 79.65
C2 (mol%) 16.49
C3+ (mol%) 3.86

The results of preliminary petrophysical interpretation confirm:

  • The prospectivity of the Amungee Member B shale.
  • Reservoir quality of the B shale (TOC, porosity and gross thickness) compares strongly with commercial shale plays in the United States.
  • The Velkerri 76 S2-1 well provides yet another robust data point for the joint venture to consider various commercialisation options across its permits.

Additional analysis of the conventional core acquired during the drilling of Velkerri 76 will be required to confirm the preliminary petrophysics interpretation outlined above and will take place over the coming months.

Laboratory analysis of gas samples collected during drilling will be carried out to further refine gas composition data within the Amungee Member shale intervals.

Philip O’Quigley (CEO of Falcon) commented:

“The preliminary petrophysical interpretation of the Velkerri 76 wireline logs is excellent news with the Middle Velkerri B shale comparing favourably to some of the most commercially successful shale plays in North America. These results are further evidence of the increasing significance of the Velkerri play with results still to come from flow testing of two horizontal wells at the neighbouring Santos-operated blocks also targeting the Velkerri play.”

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

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd.

(“Falcon” or the “Company”)

 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.
