MELBOURNE, Australia -- The Libra-1 exploration well in permit AC/P41 in the Browse basin, offshore Western Australia, has encountered gas in a series of thick sand packages over a vertical section in excess of 180 m (591 ft) gross, according to Nexus Energy.

The well reached 3,918 m (12,854 ft) total vertical depth subsea (TVDSS) in an 8.5-in. (21.6-cm) hole. Further wireline logging and pressure data is required to determine reservoir quality, column height, and hydrocarbon composition, the company says.
