Eni Tests Blow-Out Preventers at Heron (Australia)

MEO Australia Limited advises that at 06:00 Darwin time on Tuesday 2nd October, Eni Australia Ltd (Eni) as operator of the NT/P68 exploration permit had drilled the 311mm (12 ¼”) hole from 3,740m to 3,828mMDRT (metres Measured Depth below Rotary Table), run logs, installed and cemented 244mm (9 5/8”) casing to 3,818mMDRT.

There have been no reportable incidents. The forward plan is to test the blow-out preventers prior to drilling ahead in 216mm (8 ½”) hole to Total Depth (TD) at 4,265mMDRT or the gas water contact. At TD a full formation evaluation program will be run including formation pressures and fluid sampling. If warranted, a production test will be run to determine reservoir productivity.

The well was spudded on August 24th 2012 and will be drilled to at least 4,265mMDRT or the gas water contact. The key objectives of the well are to determine the productivity of the Elang-Plover reservoir and the gas composition. The drilling program is expected to take around 60 days.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
