Operators are finding oil in Mexico’s shallow waters as they look to grow reserves.

Located in a water depth of about 2,175 m (7,136 ft)  in the Sangomar Deep Offshore Block, the well was drilled by the Stena DrillMAX drillship about 30 km (19 miles) southwest of the FAN-1 exploration well.

AWE Ltd. has confirmed the extension of the Waitsia Field in Australia with the Waitsia-3 well encountering natural gas shows in the Kingia and High Cliff sandstone reservoirs, the company said in a July 4 news release.

Statoil said the Kayak well, which was drilled by the Songa Enabler in the Johan Castberg license, made a discovery totaling between an estimated 25 and 50 million barrels of recoverable oil equivalents.

Rosneft and its partners plan to invest $8.4 billion in developing Russia’s offshore energy industry in the next five years, part of a drive to boost output from new areas.

The company said its South Baghjan-2 well, located in the Baghjan Petroleum Mining Lease, encountered multiple sands in Narpuh and Lakadong+Therria formations.

The well has proven oil charge across a significant part of the Greater Etom structure, Tullow said.

The Yuedong 30-1-1 well hit mostly gas. The well was drilled to a depth of 4,235 m (13,894 ft). The formation has a temperature of nearly 200 degrees C (392 degrees F).

The gas find, located west of the Teranga discovery and south of Tortue, is estimated to hold 15 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

The new discovery was made onshore in the Uzunada area, state news agency TDH said. The test well produced 500,000 cubic meters of gas and 150 tonnes of condensate per day, it said.

Anadarko, the operator, said the well hit 79 m to 110 m (260 ft to 360 ft) net of natural gas pay.
