Falcon Australia holds a 100% interest in Exploration Permits EP 99, 98, 117, and 76, covering approximately seven million acres in the Beetaloo Basin. The Beetaloo Basin is a Proterozoic and Cambrian age tight oil and gas basin that the Board believes is well suited for unconventional oil and gas projects. Connected to the major industrial and export markets in Darwin 600km to the north, Falcon Australia is uniquely positioned in the Northern Territory to achieve commercial production. Existing infrastructure includes a major highway, two gas pipelines and a railway.
Since acquiring the licences in 2008, Falcon Australia has conducted extensive study of 11 wells that were drilled by an oil and gas subsidiary of Rio Tinto between 1988 and 1992. Oil and gas bleeds from 6,700 meters of core and other well data confirm all necessary elements of productive shale oil and shale gas play exist in multiple independent petroleum systems. Each of these intervals is prospective for oil or gas providing Falcon with an extensive inventory of drilling opportunities.
In July 2011, Falcon Australia entered into a participation agreement with Hess which required Hess to acquire a minimum of US$40 million of seismic data across the majority of three permit areas. By December 2012 Hess had collected 3,490 kms of seismic data and spent in excess of US$60 million.
Under the terms of the Participation Agreement, Hess had until 30th of June 2013 to commit to a five well drilling programme in order to earn a 62.5% interest in the three permits. A late request by Hess to defer the election date was unanimously rejected by Falcon's board, therefore Hess didn't elect and forteits their rights to earn 62.5% in three of the Beetaloo permits.
RPS Report January 2013
RPS Energy, in its independent CPR dated 1 January 2013 estimates gross unrisked recoverable prospective resource (play level) potential of 162 Tcf of gas and 21,345 Mmbo of oil (P50) for Falcon Australia’s Beetaloo Exploration Permits. In its entirety, the Beetaloo Basin covers approximately 8.7 million acres (approximately 35,260 km2) and, as far as the Company is aware, a total of 11 wells have been drilled in the Beetaloo Basin to date. This work was undertaken by a Rio Tinto Group subsidiary company exploring for conventional hydrocarbons and while not leading to a commercial development, the data from the cores demonstrated the presence of tight oil and gas and several horizons were shown to be prospective for unconventional oil and gas.
Falcon/Hess Joint Venture
In April 2011, Falcon Australia entered into a joint venture with Hess, whereby Hess agreed to collect seismic data over an area covering EP76, EP98, EP99, excluding an area covering 100,000 acres (approximately 405 km2) surrounding the Shenandoah-1 well-bore. Since the date of this agreement, Hess has spent in excess of US$60 million acquiring 3,490 kilometres of 2D seismic data which is currently being interpreted. Hess had the option until 30 June 2013, to acquire a 62.5 per cent working interest in the Hess Area of Interest by committing to drill and evaluate five exploration wells at Hess’ sole cost, one of which must be a horizontal well. A late request by Hess to defer the election datewas unanimously rejected by Falcon's board, therefore Hess didn't elect and forteits their rights to earn 62.5% in three of the Beetaloo permits.
The Shenandoah-1 was a vertical hole well drilled by Sweetpea in 2007. The well was deepened by Falcon Australia in 2009 to finish at 2,714 metres. It was re-entered in Q3 2011 and five short tests were conducted including several fraccing operations. Gas was recovered from three zones with some liquid
