Quadrant Energy has announced a successful well test at the Roc-2, 165km north of Port Hedland in Bedout basin, Western Australia.

Roc-2 flow tested at a maximum rate of 51.2 million standard cubic feet (scf) per day of gas and 2,943 barrels of condensate per day, from a 25m thick perforated interval at 4,400m below sea level.

This success indicates the prospect of the Bedout basin in Western Australia.

Quadrant Energy-led joint venture has been farming the area since 2012, and able to achieve a 100% success rate in three exploration wells, Phoenix South-1, Roc-1 and now Roc-2.

"Results indicate significant potential in this largely unexplored area situated in relatively shallow water."

Results indicate significant potential in this largely unexplored area situated in relatively shallow water.

Quadrant Energy is the operator and holds between 70%-80% interest in four permits totalling more than 21,000km².

The Roc-2 result offers Quadrant Energy the opportunity to analyse a range of development options given the close proximity to major resource projects.

Quadrant Energy is continuing to secure high-quality data to analyse these options in a measured approach.

This announcement adds to Quadrant Energy’s recent exploration success during the year at Davis-1, Outtrim-East-1 and Spartan-1.
