Lakes Oil (ASX: LKO) and Armour Energy expect to next week spud the Moreys-1 gas exploration well in the onshore Otway Basin that could result in early cash flow if successful.


The Moreys prospect is a tilted fault block that straddles the border between Lakes' PEP 169 and Somerton Energy's PEP 168 along a known west northwest trending hydrocarbon fairway.


It targets the Late Cretaceous Waarre C sands with secondary targets in the overlying Flaxman formation and underlying Eumeralla Formation.


The rig, which is already on site, is expected to spud Moreys-1 on April 18.


It will take about 10 days to drill the well to its planned total depth of about 2000 metres.


Nearby fields are located both to the east and west while an existing gas pipeline is less than 1 kilometre away.


Lakes added that Moreys appears similar to the McIntee, Fenton Creek and Mylor fields operated by Origin Energy (ASX:ORG).


Armour, which is currently in the middle of its initial public offering to raise up to A$75 million, is funding the cost of the well to A$2.5 million to earn its 50% stake in PEP 169.

Just noticed the stack of former Arrow/Bow management involved with Armour Energy.

Can't say I am very familiar with the basins that Armour has interests in. Anyone else having a look at Armour?

Seems to be some interest today - SP up 8.89% @ 9.8c. Could be due to the NT Government lifting the Fracking moratorium? AJQ have some acreage put on hold.


In September 2016, the Northern Territory Government announced a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing of onshore unconventional reservoirs including the use of hydraulic fracturing for exploration, extraction and production, including Diagnostic Fracture Injection Testing. This moratorium places a halt on any territory-wide activity for Amour until the moratorium is lifted.

• McArthur Basin has proven conventional and unconventional shale gas resources with a focus on near term production development opportunities from existing conventional discoveries.

• Independently certified Prospective Resources of 34 TCF (Best Estimate) of conventional and unconventional gas and 1.2 billion barrels of oil and hydrocarbon liquids (Best Estimate). • 193 conventional leads and prospects identified in Coxco and Reward Dolomites and Tawallah Group Sandstones with 4.3 TCF Prospective Resources (Best Estimate).
