Drilling Activity Summary


Buru Energy has spudded a conventional oil exploration well at #1-Rafale in Western Australia. The venture is in EP 428 in the Canning Basin. The #1-Rafael is being drilled on a large structure that has more than 450 m of mapped closure. It has a large regional structure that is interpreted to have similarities to large and prolific oil producers Devonian-aged carbonate structures in Western Canada. The #1-Rafael is the second well in the company’s drilling program in the basin. The first well in the program, #1-Currajong, encountered an interpreted oil accumulation in the Ungani Dolomite equivalent section.
