Jubilant Energy completes spudding of KPL-3E-4 well in Kharsang Field
BY IAN WALKER
LONDON -- Jubilant Energy said KPL-3E-4, the second well of the six well Phase-III-Extension development drilling campaign in the oil producing Kharsang Field is spudded.
KPL-3E-4, located in the north-western area of the field, is being drilled as an infill development well with the H-00 reservoir as the primary objective and G-00 reservoir as the secondary objective. Well will be deviated by 357 m towards south-east from the existing plinth of well KSG No.27 and will be drilled to a target depth of 1082 m Measured Depth (MD), and 1,000 m True Vertical Depth (TVD).
Well is expected to take up to three weeks to drill. First development well of the current campaign, KSG No.65, which was spudded in February, was successfully drilled to a revised target depth of 1,145 m MD and 1,111 m TVD in March.
Based on the results of wire-line log interpretation, drill cuttings, side wall cores and formation pressure data from the Reservoir Dynamic Tester, nine potentially hydrocarbon bearing sands have been encountered in the well, a total net pay of 44 m, out of which eight appear to be oil bearing.
Company will be testing the first sand and expects to put into production within two weeks.
