Production for Mart Resource’s Umusadege field in Nigeria during August averaged 12,131 b/d and averaged 11,303 b/d during September, the company reported.
The field’s downtime during August was less than one day and during September was less than three days. The average field production based on producing days was 12,535 b/d in August and 12,559 b/d during September, according to a news release. The average daily production in August and September was slightly lower than in July due to decreased export pipeline capacity allocated to the Umusadege field.
The UMU-10 well reached a final total drilling depth of approximately 9,757 ft (2,974 m). The next phase of operations will include open hole well logging, conducting pressure surveys on prospective zones, and acquiring fluid samples. Well operations will then continue with running 9 5/8-in casing in the open hole, according to the release. The primary objectives of the UMU-10 well are the oil-bearing sands identified in the 8 1/2 inch deviated hole section of the UMU-9 well. The oil-bearing sand discoveries from UMU-9 account for 170 feet of gross oil pay.
Based on UMU-10 preliminary results from logging-while-drilling (LWD) technology, the target sands identified by the UMU-10 well have been similar in thickness to those encountered in the UMU-9 well. Up to four of these sands could be completed in UMU-10. The completion and testing of the UMU-10 well is expected to take approximately 45 to 60 days, the release said.
