Active FIrst Half 2018 Work Program

First Half 2018 Work Program.jpg
  • Thornbury Reactivation Project Commenced – should increase production by 1.7mmcf/d.
  • Two well drilling program confirmed for H1 2018.
  • Nine well workovers in existing producing areas.
  • LOI executed with Tidewater Paddle River Gas Plant to process gas through their 60mmcf/d deep cut facility.
  • 15-20 wells to be brought back on stream over a six-month period as pipelines are recommissioned – gross production is expected to increase by around 2 mmcf/d and 100 bbl/d of liquids.
  • Deep cut processing facility able to strip high value liquids from gas, improving economics.
  • 3D Seismic Acquisition Program confirmed over Banff play.
After a strong finish to 2017 we are continuing to focus on lifting production in 2018 by leveraging existing assets. The recent execution of the Tidewater agreement combined with our active 2018 Canadian work program will drive further production growth and lower our operating costs”.
David Messina, Managing Director

Canadian Production Increases By 60%

Whitebark Energy Ltd (ASX: WBE) (“Whitebark” or “the Company”) is pleased to provide an update to shareholders with regards to its Canadian activities.

Point Loma JV (PLJV), Canada (WBE 20% WI)
Following the drilling of two wells and the reactivation of two stranded wells, Whitebark net production has increased to 300boe/d, up approximately 60% since the acquisition. The wells are expected to stabilise over the coming weeks and will provide key information in relation to adjacent drilling opportunities.

Thornbury Reactivation
Construction work is expected to commence in January to reconnect approximately 2.0 mmcf/d gross to the PLJV of natural gas into JV operated facilities. Whitebark’s Managing Director, David Messina, said “We are very happy to report a 60% increase in production from the work program we undertook in Q3 2017. Further increases will occur in the coming weeks as we unlock additional stranded production”

Further Success from Drilling Program
  • Perth Basin – WA – Xanadu Oil Discovery post well analysis continues.
  • Canadian Operations Update: o 5-31 well re-completion placed on production on 3rd October
  • 9-18 Sparky well drilled and will be stimulated this week, with production expected in early November;
  • Initial 1-32 Ostracod well drilled with strong shows: over 2000 gas units and visible oil staining, further activity to follow;
  • Twelve sections (7,680 acres) of petroleum and natural gas (P&NG) leases and licences recently acquired which will enable development of significant Mannville, Nordegg and Banff oil targets in 2018;
  • 18 additional drilling opportunities added to inventory as a result of current drilling programs and land acquisitions;
  • Thornbury development plan filed to unlock approximately 2mmcf/day of previously producing fields; and
  • Paddle River acquisition to be placed on production in the second half of October
Producer and explorer Whitebark Energy Ltd (ASX: WBE) (“Whitebark” or “the Company”) has completed the drilling portion of its recent work program. This involved the drilling of three new wells, two workovers and strategic land acquisitions in Canada. Initial production from this activity has commenced and over the quarter, additional production will be added.

Xanadu Oil Discovery,WA (WBE 15% WI)
While the Joint Venture is carrying out evaluation of the Xanadu-1 discovery, planning work has commenced on various scenarios including the acquisition of seismic and the drilling of development/appraisal wells over the discovery. Once all the information is available, the Joint Venture will determine the optimum means to appraise the oil discovery.

Point Loma JV, Canada (WBE 20% WI) 5-31 Nordegg Recompletion – West Cove
The 5-31 Nordegg well was placed on production 3rd October 2017 and is currently producing between 100-200boe/day and expected to stabilise as the well cleans up. This production, from a short lateral intersecting the upper Nordegg, is an excellent test of concept for future longer horizontal wells intersecting the zone of interest. The well pad is configured for two additional wells, which would produce through the existing pipeline infrastructure enhancing the economics of future wells.

Quarterly Activity Statement 30 October 2017

Highlights Xanadu Oil Discovery
  • Xanadu Discovery well drilled and tested in September;
  • Oil analysis confirms API oil gravity of 34.7o, no H2S and extremely low levels of CO2;
  • Key initial findings indicate oil volumes may be present up-dip and down-dip from the discovery well;
  • Approvals for Xanadu-1 sidetrack received;
  • Tenders for 3D seismic acquisition currently being received
JV anticipates active 1H 2018 program

Canadian Operations
  • Gross production for the quarter 63,700 boe;
  • 9-18 Sparky drilled and stimulated, tie in planned for early November;
  • 5-31 Nordegg well workover completed and tied-in; production has stabilised at 156 boe/day;
  • 1-32 Ostracod well drilled and sidetrack planned to increase horizontal lateral section;
  • Twelve sections (7,680 acres) of petroleum and natural gas (P&NG) leases and licencesacquired which will enable development of significant Mannville, Nordegg and Banff oil targets in 2018;
Gross production expected to increase to 1250 boe/day in December

Oil Discovery at Xanadu Confirmed
  • Logs run over a 330m section of the Xanadu well confirm reservoir quality sand intervals throughout the Irwin River Coal Measures (IRCM) with porosities ranging 15% to 16%.
  • Oil was obtained via a testing tool from 4.6m of net pay in the top ‘A’ sand, one of three discrete sand intervals (A, B, C) at top of IRCM.
  • Analysis of oil samples obtained from Xanadu-1 expected to substantiate Cliff Head analogue with oil assay results expected by end of week.
  • Norwest Energy to lodge Discovery Notice with Minister of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety.
The Joint Venture will now plan for a lateral well through the oil column.

We are very excited that we have proven movable oil and can subsequently confirm Xanadu well as an oil discovery. We look forward to working with the JV partners to determine the best way to monetise the field.” – David Messina, Managing Director, WBE.

Background
Xanadu-1 is a conventional oil well located in TP/15, an offshore permit located in WA state waters, approximately 1.3km from the coastline. Xanadu-1 is a deviated well, drilled from an onshore surface location situated approximately 40km south of the township of Dongara, Western Australia.

The Xanadu-1 well was spud on 4th September 2017, and reached a total depth of 2035mMDRT on Sunday 17th September, when it was confirmed that the Xanadu-1 well had intersected hydrocarbon bearing intervals as demonstrated by elevated gas readings, oil shows, fluorescence and cut-fluorescence whilst drilling.
