2013-05-21

Jubilant Energy announced Monday that it has spud the fourth well of its Phase-III Extension drilling campaign in the oil-producing Kharsang field, onshore India. Jubilant said the well, KPL-3E-2, spud May 17.

 

Jubilant also reported, in a separate statement, that KSG No.66 (previously KPL-3E-4) – the second of the six development wells in the drilling campaign – has successfully tested for oil and has been put into production at an initial gross rate of 81 barrels of oil per day.

 

Meanwhile, the firm's third development well, which spud April 20 and reached target depth May 2, has yielded four potential hydrocarbon-bearing sands with a total net pay of 62 feet, of which three appear to be oil bearing with a total net pay of 53.8 feet.

 

South Asia-focused Jubilant Energy announced on April 22 that it has spud the third well of its Phase III Extension development drilling campaign in the oil-producing Kharsang Field in Arunachal Pradesh, India. Jubilant plans six wells in total in this drilling campaign.

 

The well, designated KPL-3E-6, is located in the central part of the field and is aimed at exploiting untapped hydrocarbons in the infill area between wells KSG No.11 and KSG No.25. The well is targeting the H-00 layer, with the G-00 and I-00 layers as secondary objectives.

 

The well will be drilled to a target depth of approximately 3,350 feet and is expected to take approximately three weeks to drill.
