Carnarvon Provides Phoenix South-1 Well Update

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/8/2014, Location: Not categorized

Carnarvon Petroleum Limited reports that the Phoenix South-1 well has commenced drilling operations in the side track wellbore. As at 06:00 hours on 7 July 2014 the well was drilling ahead at approximately 1,960m on the way to the 9 5/8” casing point of around 3,700m.

As reported on 23 June 2014, a new side-track wellbore section of the Phoenix South-1 well was required to be drilled below the 13 3/8” casing depth, due to a stuck 9 5/8” casing hangar seal assembly running tool (“casing tool”).

In order to retrieve the stuck casing tool, the upper portion of the previously set 9 5/8” casing was cut and retrieved along with the casing tool.

The original wellbore was plugged with cement and a new side-track wellbore commenced drilling operations on 5 July 2014.

The new side-track wellbore is being drilled at a distance of around 30m from the original wellbore. The positioning and forward plans of the side-track wellbore does not compromise the evaluation of the Phoenix South-1 prospect.

At the current time the operator expects drilling to reach its Total Depth (“TD”) around mid August and complete well operations by the end of August. At the current time, the estimated additional cost to Carnarvon of the side-track operation is around A$6m, based on final costs exceeding the cost cap of US$70 million.
