Company Profile

Project: Martell Discovery
Commodity: Gas
Ownership: Woodside Energy (50%) Hess Energy (50%)
Block/License: WA-404-P

The Martell gas field is located in permit WA-404-P, about 290 kilometres from Karratha and 100km north-west of the Pluto gas field, in WA’s Carnarvon Basin. The field was discovered in March 2009 in waters measuring 4232 feet deep.
The Martell-1 well was drilled by the Atwood Eagle semi-submersible and reached a total depth of 10,925ft. Pressure testing of sandstones across an interval of between 9,114ft and 10,502ft confirmed a gross gas column of about 361ft in good quality reservoir sandstones.
In 2010 the Remy-1 well, about 500 metres from Martell-1 in permit WA-404-P, intersected about 33m and 39m of gross gas across two separate zones within the triassic target, and also successfully appraised the Martell gas discovery. The well reached a total depth of 4555m.
Martell was expected to provide a boost to Woodside’s Pluto liquefied natural gas
