The Dzheitune (Lam) C/175 well in Asia tested at an initial production rate of 1,420 b/d of oil, Dragon Oil reported.
The well was completed as a single producer to a depth of 2,721 m (8,927 ft).
The shallow layers, which also were targeted for this well, contained oil-bearing sands as predicted by the geological model; however, these zones were between gas and water formations and the decision was made to perforate these sands at a later stage, according to the company. The well was completed with a single string. The results of this well will help in optimizing locations of future wells in this platform.
The drilling rig has been mobilized to the Dzheitune (Lam) A platform and is now drilling the Dzheitune (Lam) A/176 development well.
The Dzheitune (Lam) 13/171 development well, which was drilled on the Dzheitune (Lam) 13 platform to a depth of 2,893 m (9,491 and did not yield commercial oil rates, is being considered for conversion into a water injector-type well in the Dzheitune (Lam) 13 area. This will be the second water injection project besides the pilot Dzheitune (Lam) 75 area. The Dzheitune (Lam) 13 area has been producing for many years and is due for pressure support, which could help enhance the production potential and reserves in this area.
The land rig will be stacked on the platform pending the evaluation of options for its further use. The leased land rig is undergoing maintenance in preparation for spudding the Dzheitune (Lam) 28/177 development well later this month.
