Beach Energy’s Udacha field in the Cooper Basin, South Australia, has achieved first gas, Rawson Resources informed.
The PRL 26 (Udacha) licence is operated by Beach Energy, and Rawson holds 10% interest.
The Udacha-1 well has been tied back as a producing well to the Middleton production facility.
Initial production is expected to stabilize at 1.0 MMscfd, increasing to 1.6 MMscfd once compression is available at Middleton in early 2017, the company explained.
The Udacha-1 is the first ever production to provide revenue stream to Rawson, the company noted.
