Avanti Helium inks drilling contract in Montana


Avanti Helium is making great headways in the state of Montana, having contracted T&S Drilling to drill its WNG 10-21 helium appraisal well into the WNG helium pool in the Greater Knappen region.

In a statement released on Wednesday (31st August), the gas exploration company said WNG 10-21 lease construction has been completed and T&S is now preparing to mobilise the rig and hopes to spud WNG 10-21 by the end of September.

gasworld understands that WNG 10-21 is planned to be drilled to a total depth of approximately 5,500 feet and will target both the Flathead Cambrian Standstone and Souris River zones for potential helium production.

Cam Buss, Vice-President of Operations at Avanti Helium, said, “We are excited to continue our success from the discovery well at WNG 11-22 that we drilled with T&S Drilling.”
