SYDNEY, December 13, 2018 – Armour Energy has struck hydrocarbons in licence PL511 in Queensland, Australia, the company announced on Thursday.


Well Myall Creek 5A “encountered a 290‐metre gross Triassic and Permian gas charged window beginning at 1875 metres depth,” Armour, which owns 100% of the asset, said in a filing with the Australian Securities Exchange.

“The confirmation of the Black Alley Shale in Armour’s Myall Creek 4A and Myall Creek 5A [wells] indicates the potential of a new regional gas and oil play, and is the subject of ongoing analysis by Armour.”
