Interra completes CHK 1191 well in Myanmar' s Chauk field as oil producer
SINGAPORE -- Interra Resources Limited (Interra) informed its shareholders that its jointly controlled entity, Goldpetrol Joint Operating Company Inc. (Goldpetrol), has completed development well CHK 1191 in the Chauk oil field in Myanmar as an oil producer.
Interra has a 60% interest in the Improved Petroleum Recovery Contract of the Chauk field and also owns 60% of Goldpetrol which is the operator of the field. CHK 1191 is being drilled using Goldpetrol’s ZJ 450 rig, thus drilling costs were relatively low. Interra’s share of the cost of drilling is funded from existing funds on hand.
CHK 1191 was drilled to a total depth 3,650 feet in the North-Central fault block of Chauk field in a slightly up-dip position to CHK 1183 which was completed in April 2014 as an oil producer and with the primary objective of accelerating production from undrained portions of oil reservoirs in this fault block. Following production testing, CHK 1191 has been completed through casing perforations over 46 ft covering nine reservoirs for 20 bpd.
CHK 1191 is the seventeenth well drilled in the Chauk oil field and twenty-forth in Myanmar in 2014.
