Silver City Drilling, one of Australia’s industry leaders in the delivery of flexible, efficient drilling programs in the water, oil and gas, mineral exploration and mining industry, has recently announced its work at the Primero West-1 well at the Reid's Dome Gas Project (PL 231) has been successfully completed. It had undertaken the drilling operation with State Gas Limited to enable testing activities at the project.

The Primero West-1 well was designed and located to test the Cattle Creek Formation within PL 231 fully in accordance with the requirements of the Joint Operating Agreement. The "Primero" gas sand had been identified in the Cattle Creek Formation from a depth of 131.5 metres, with petrophysical analysis which indicated a net gas-bearing zone.

The Silver City Drilling Rig-25 has now been mobilised from the Primero West-1 site to the Nyanda-4 site approximately 13.5 kilometres to the south within PL 231.

Silver City Drilling has been successfully employed for more than three decades operating and providing drilling exploration solutions for energy suppliers, the oil and gas sector, and national and international minerals mining. In addition to providing a range of exploration operations in these sectors, the company provides an extensive variety of groundwater drilling programs in relation to water rights and extraction including: stocking for domestic uses, irrigation and horticulture, artesian services and bore hole rehabilitation.

According to Silver City Drilling HSEQ&T manager, Ken Jones, “For over 20 years, from our beginnings in Broken Hill, Silver City Drilling has developed strong relationships with its clients, partners, and key stake holders enabling the company to offer its customers outstanding exploration opportunities on a range of projects around Australia in some of the remotest and most difficult locations.

“Many of these large projects have used Silver City Drilling for years, not only due to the range of equipment we bring to a venture, but because we are experts in our field, so we can help companies identify the correct exploration solutions and offer specialized expertise and maintenance. Our concern is always for successful productivity outcomes and safety on the projects we are involved with and we look forward to being involved in the mining sector for many decades to come”.

Silver City Drilling’s ability to bring to a project individuals with over 30 years’ experience in the drilling industry coupled with fully-equipped workshops and depots, hardware as well as personnel to suit any drilling program has seen them successfully develop into a leader in oil, gas, mineral and water drilling.
