Sea Dragon Energy Inc. (Sea Dragon or the Company) is pleased to announce that Al Amir SE-12 well was drilled to a total depth of 10,200 feet in the Upper Rudeis and logged.
This development well, located in the south eastern area of the field was spud on April 25, 2012. The well was targeting the Shagar and Rahmi reservoirs at a depth of approximately 9,320 and 9,400 feet respectively.
Interpretation of the drilling and logging information indicate the well crossed a fault resulting in the absence of the Shagar and Rahmi reservoirs. The decision was then made to plug back to 3,700 feet and sidetrack the well updip to the northeast. Sidetrack operations are currently ongoing and the well is expected to reach total depth in approximately 20 days.
Current production from the Al Amir SE and Geyad fields is approximately 9,700 bopd (970 bopd net to Sea Dragon). Cumulative production from the NW Gemsa Concession has now exceeded 8.2 million barrels of 42 degree API Crude oil.
The NW Gemsa concession is located onshore on the west side of the Gulf of Suez, some 300 km southeast of Cairo. Two main oil fields are producing light oil, the Al Amir SE field along with the Al Ola extension to the south and the Geyad field to the north. Sea Dragon has a 10% working interest in the NW Gemsa Concession with Vegas at 50%, as operator and Circle Oil PLC with 40%.
