Progress report on Kaitangata multi-well coal seam gas programme

Tuesday, February 14, 2012
  • Wangaloa-2, located approximately 1.6 km to the southwest of Wangaloa-1, is at a current depth of 166m and drilling ahead towards an estimated target depth of 350m.

L&M Energy is pleased to provide the following update regarding its Kaitangata CSG appraisal programme within PEP 38219, located 60km south of Dunedin.

Wangaloa-2, located approximately 1.6 km to the southwest of Wangaloa-1, is at a current depth of 166m and drilling ahead towards an estimated target depth of 350m. The first coaly sequence was intersected at approximately 100m, which is slightly deeper than anticipated.

The well is set to test the coal seam gas potential from five sub-bituminous coal horizons (Capstick, Jordan, Kai Main, Carson and Shore) within the coalfield. Wangaloa-2 is the first of five wells to be drilled in a northerly and potentially deeper portion of the permit. The programme is intended to give sufficient data to determine the coal seam gas potential of the Kaitangata area
