GAS FLOWS FOR COMET RIDGE

Comet Ridge Limited (ASX:COI) has announced the Mahalo Field pilot in Queensland's Bowen Basin was brought on-line late last week and closely monitored over the weekend, with one of the wells immediately flowing gas.

Well performance will continue to be monitored over the next few weeks with detailed tracking of water and gas rates from the wells as they stabilise.

Comet Ridge Managing Director Tor McCaul says he is pleased that the Mahalo Field pilot scheme is now operational and is "very encouraged" that a gas flow was recorded from one of the four wells as it came on-line.

"The objective of this pilot scheme, is to lift water from the coal seam, which reduces the pressure in the area around the wells, and allows gas to desorb from the coal and flow to the well,'' he says.

"Ultimately the aim of the pilot is that one or more of the wells will produce gas at commercial rates which will allow gas resources to be converted to gas reserves.''

Regular operational updates for the Mahalo Field Pilot Scheme will be provided as the wells stabilise and pumping rates are fine tuned.

At the Mira Field, construction activities continue with that pilot scheme expected to come on-line in the next several weeks.

Equity participants in ATP 337P Mahalo are Comet Ridge Mahalo Pty Ltd 35%, Stanwell Corporation Limited 5%, Australia Pacific LNG Pty Ltd 30% and Santos QNT Pty Ltd 30%.

Comet Ridge has significant coal seam gas projects in key regions of Queensland and New South Wales. It has other active exploration work in the Galilee Basin in Qld.
