Extra contracts for Senex drilling to be awarded soon

Senex Energy has begun civil works for a well drilling campaign across the Roma North and Project Atlas developments.

Senex plans to drill approximately 110 wells in the Surat Basin projects, with the campaign expected to commence in the fourth quarter of FY19.

The company has awarded the contract for initial well pads and access roads to local Queensland company T&W Earthmoving, while contracts for drilling rig and well site services will be awarded in the near future.

Senex said both Project Atlas and Roma North are continuing to advance on schedule, with Atlas expecting first gas production at the end of the year, while the Roma gas facility is on track for commissioning in a few months.
