PERTH, Australia -- Woodside reports a discovery with the Martell-1 exploration well in permit WA-404-P in Western Australia's Carnarvon basin. The well was drilled to TD of 3,330 m (10,925 ft) and wireline logs indicate a gross gas column of about 110 m (361 ft) in good quality reservoir sandstones, the company says.

Woodside is awaiting the results of pressure testing. The Martell-1 discovery is expected to be followed by further drilling on the structural trend later this year.
