Maurel & Prom is able to confirm the success of the OMOC-N-301 delineation well in the Southeast of the Onal field. Drilling has reached a depth of 1,041 m, encountering saturated hydrocarbon intervalles in the Grès de base formation, with 44 m perforated.
During testing on a 32/64’’ choke, a flow rate of 1,600 boepd of oil was recorded. The oil samples collected show a 33° oil, with characteristics that are expected to be similar to those produced on the Omko, Omgw and Omoc-N fields and therefore potentially with less of a paraffin base than the oil produced on the Onal field, with no evacuation problems experienced to date.
This well has demonstrated the presence of a new compartment in the Grès de base, proving a Southeast extension of the Onal field, opening up new possibilities.
A second well (OMOC-N-302) is going to be drilled as a deviation from the same platform over the next few weeks in order to determine the scale of this extension.
