  • Kyalla 117 N2-1 is the first well in the Stage 2 drilling programme to target the Kyalla shale liquids rich gas play.
  • Located within Exploration Permit 117 approx. 32 kilometres north of the Beetaloo W-1 well.
  • A vertical pilot hole will target a total vertical depth of approximately 1,750 metres into the Kyalla Formation.
  • A subsequent horizontal section is planned for approximately 1,000 metres that will be drilled, completed, stimulated and production tested in the prospective Kyalla shale reservoir interval.
  • Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd (“Origin”), as Operator, will drill the Kyalla 117 N2-1 well.
  • Origin hold a participating interest of 70% and Falcon Oil & Gas Australia Limited hold the other 30% participating interest over the Beetaloo Exploration Permits, 76, 98 and 117.

 

The principal objectives for the drilling of the Kyalla 117 N2-1 well are to:

  • Penetrate the Kyalla Formation to assess hydrocarbon maturity, saturation and reservoir quality.
  • Provide further information on the areal distribution of the Kyalla Formation.
  • Collect data for subsequent horizontal drilling, completion, stimulation and production testing; including ability to flow liquids rich gas.

 

Formation evaluation, including reservoir characterisation, will be carried out through petrophysical interpretation, geo-mechanical studies and core analysis.

 

Philip O’Quigley, CEO of Falcon commented:

 

“The spudding of the Kyalla 117 N2-1 appraisal well is an exciting development for Falcon and marks the re-commencement of the drilling programme with our JV partner. We look forward to updating the market as soon as results become available”.

Extension of ORRI Call Option

By | Press Releases

FALCON OIL & GAS LTD.

 Extension of ORRI Call Option

23 April 2019 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG, Euronext Growth: FAC) is pleased to announce that Falcon Oil & Gas Australia Ltd. (“Falcon”) has successfully negotiated a two-year extension of the call option (“the Extension”) to acquire it’s 30% portion of the 2% ORRI from the TOG Group. The Extension will be submitted to the Northern Territory Government, Australia, for review, approval and registration if required.

 Background

In December 2013, Falcon entered an agreement with the TOG Group to acquire 7% (seven-eighths) of their 8% private ORRI over the Beetaloo Sub-basin exploration permits. Falcon made a payment to the TOG Group of $5 million to acquire 5% (five-eighths) of their ORRI on completion of a Beetaloo farm-out transaction. The TOG Group granted Falcon and Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd. (“Origin”) a five-year call option in proportion to their Participating Interest to acquire a further 2% (two-eighths) of their ORRI for a payment of US$15 million. The TOG Group retains a 1% ORRI. The call option is due to expire on 22 August 2019.

The Extension highlights are as follows:

  • Allows Falcon to exercise its 30% share of the call option up to and including 31 August 2021.
  • Falcon to pay US$500,000 to the TOG Group for granting the Extension
  • The cost of exercising Falcon’s portion of the call option increases from US$4.5m to US$7.5m.

The Extension granted to Falcon does not change the rights or obligations for Origin under the original call option agreement.

Philip O’Quigley, CEO of Falcon, commented: 

“Falcon had originally envisaged the call option decision would follow the completion of the Beetaloo work programme under the 2014 Farmin Agreement with Origin.  In consideration of the delays to the work programme due to the moratorium on hydraulic fracture stimulation in the Northern Territory, this two-year Extension enables Falcon to further progress the Beetaloo work program, allowing Falcon make a more informed decision with the additional work completed while providing greater financial flexibility over the next couple of years.”

 2019 Beetaloo Drilling Programme – Rig Contract Signed

21 January 2019 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG, ESM: FAC) is very pleased to announce that Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd. (“Origin”), our joint venture (“JV”) partner and Operator of the Beetaloo project, in the Northern Territory, Australia, has signed a rig contract with Ensign Australia Pty Ltd. for Rig 963 for the 2019 Stage 2 Beetaloo drilling programme, with an option to extend the contract into 2020.

2019 Stage 2 Beetaloo Drilling Programme

Subject to relevant approvals, and implementation of the exploration recommendations of the Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracture Stimulation in the Northern Territory, the JV will evaluate the potential of the liquids-rich gas fairways in both the Kyalla and Velkerri plays. Exploration and appraisal activities include the drilling and hydraulic fracture stimulation of two horizontal wells. Together with the Velkerri B dry gas play discovered in 2016, this allows for the assessment of three plays, enabling the most commercially prospective play to be targeted for Stage 3 drilling during 2020.

Work has already commenced at some well sites, including water bore drilling and water monitoring, with drilling targeted to commence in June 2019.

The Stage 2 Cost Cap is approximately A$65m for the exploration and appraisal programme, including the drilling and hydraulic fracture stimulation costs of two horizontal wells.

Philip O’Quigley, CEO of Falcon, commented: 

“Today’s announcement is an exciting development for Falcon shareholders as the JV prepares to commence drilling in the highly prospective Beetaloo Sub-basin. We look forward to updating the market as work progresses over the coming months.”

Acceleration of Exploration and Appraisal Drilling Programme into Stage 2

By | Press Releases

Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (“Falcon”)

Acceleration of Exploration and Appraisal Drilling Programme into Stage 2

16 August 2018 – Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG, ESM: FAC) is pleased to announce it has signed an agreement to amend the Farm Out Agreement with Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd (“Origin”), to deem Stage 1 of the exploration and appraisal drilling programme in the Beetaloo Sub-basin complete and to commence Stage 2 with a A$15 million increase to the Stage 2 Cost Cap.

Stage 1 Early Completion

Under the terms of the 2014 Farm-Out Agreement and Joint Operating Agreement (collectively “the Agreements”) the joint venture parties (“JV”) drilled three vertical wells and one hydraulic fracture stimulated horizontal well. The JV has agreed that, following the success of the fracture stimulated horizontal well in 2016, accelerating into the Stage 2 horizontal drilling programme is far more beneficial than fracture stimulating the final vertical well under Stage 1. The formal completion of Stage 1 is subject to government approval.

Stage 2 – A$15 million Cost Cap Increase

Under the Agreements, the original Stage 2 Cost Cap was approximately A$50m for the exploration and appraisal programme including the drilling and hydraulic fracture stimulation costs of two horizontal wells. With the removal of the fracture stimulation of the vertical well and accelerating the commencement of Stage 2, Origin has agreed to increase the Stage 2 Cost Cap by A$15 million, to approximately A$65 million. Any portion of the A$15 million increase not utilised during Stage 2 will transfer to the Stage 3 Cost Cap, which currently stands at A$48 million.

Stage 2 Exploration and Appraisal Drilling Program

The JV has agreed to evaluate the potential of the liquids-rich gas fairways in both the Kyalla and Velkerri plays. Exploration and appraisal activities planned for 2019 include the drilling of one vertical well and the drilling and hydraulic fracture stimulation of two horizontal wells. Preparations for this drilling program has started. This will allow for the assessment of three plays, including the Velkerri B dry gas play discovered in 2016, so that the most commercially prospective play can be targeted during Stage 3.

Stage 3 Early Capital Commitments

The Stage 2 exploration and appraisal drilling programme will determine the most commercially prospective play to be targeted during Stage 3. The JV has agreed to the early commitment of Stage 3 capital expenditure during 2019, allowing for an efficient transition from Stage 2 to Stage 3, in the case that Origin and Falcon agree to proceed to Stage 3.

Philip O’Quigley, CEO of Falcon, commented: 

“Today’s announcement is an exciting development for Falcon shareholders and is due to significant technical work carried out by Origin over the past 18 months. The agreed acceleration of the work program into Stage 2 is technically driven and the A$15m cost cap increase provides Falcon with additional financial flexibility. We are very excited about the upcoming drilling program with the objective of appraising and assessing commerciality of the prospective plays.”
