Winchester Energy’s (ASX: WEL) exploration success has continued into the new year, with its latest McLeod 17#3 well encountering 124 feet of potential pay and “excellent” oil and gas shows.

Situated in Winchester’s Lightning oil field, the McLeod 17#3 well has reached a total depth of 5,692ft with initial wireline logs indicating 414ft of gross Upper and Lower Cisco Sand.

Of that, 124ft of Lower Cisco Sand net pay has been identified with excellent oil and gas shows.

According to Winchester, the 124ft of sand pay exceeds the 25ft of net pay discovered at the Arledge 16#2 well.

In addition to wireline logs, a formation microlmager (FMI) log has been run in McLeod 17#3. It is expected this will uncover further potential new pay from laminated sands that may be present in the Cisco and underlying Canyon sections.

The company anticipates the total interpreted net pay within the Lower Cisco Sand will increase once FMI data has been received.
