About the project
The Tilbrook CSG pilot is designed to appraise the Moranbah Coal Measures and is comprised of one dual-lateral horizontal appraisal well (Tilbrook #8), one vertical appraisal well (Tilbrook #7) and two observation wells (Tilbrook #4 and Tilbrook #6).
The pilot is located 60 km to the south of Collinsville, adjacent to the Moranbah to Townsville gas pipeline.
The coal seams of the target Moranbah Coal Measures in this area lie at depths between 300 metres and 600 metres and contain between 7 metres and 15 metres of gas-bearing coal seams.
Initial reserve certification of 76 PJ of 3P gas reserves (WestSide share) was achieved in June 2009.
A dual-lateral horizontal well was completed in June 2009, accessing over 2,000 metres of coal in the coal seam.
