Brookside Energy (BRK) has spudded the Wolf Pack well in the SWISH area of interest (AOI) within Oklahoma’s Anadarko Basin.

The Wolf Pack Well is Brookside’s first well in its phase two development drilling program and its fourth operated well within the SWISH area of interest, alongside the Jewell, Rangers and Flames wells.

The company successfully spudded the well by Latshaw Rig 12 after completing rig-up and equipment testing.

The well is is targeting the Sycamore Foundation and is planned to be drilled to around a 17,000-feet depth.

“It is very pleasing to see the commencement of our important phase two development drilling program in SWISH,” Managing Director David Prentice said.

“We look forward to bringing news of operations from our Wolf Pack well to our shareholders over the coming weeks as we move forward with drilling and to completion and ultimately turn the well to sales.”

Brookside will continue to drill to the first casing point, trip out of hole, set surface casing and cement.

Earlier this month, the company spudded the Juanita well in the AOI which is due to be drilled to a true vertical depth of 6450 feet.

Shares in Brookside were up 4.55 per cent, trading at 1.2 cents as of 12:53 pm AEDT.
