Oilex Provides Operations Report in India

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/18/2008, Location: Asia

Oilex advised that preparations are underway to drill ahead in the Cambay 23Z well after setting 133/8 inch casing at a depth of 594 metres measured depth. This is the first well of a planned 6 well continuous drilling program in the Cambay Production Sharing Contract area, Gujarat, India. A core is planned to be taken in the Oligocene OS-II reservoir objective at a depth of approximately 1600 metres following which the well will be deepened to evaluate the Eocene section.

The Cambay-23Z well is located to test Oligocene and Eocene potential gas-bearing sandstone reservoirs. The deeper Eocene interval has an apparent direct hydrocarbon indicator of gas associated with it at this location. The well program calls for gathering an extensive set of wireline log, core and test data that will be used to normalise existing data gathered from old, existing wells and to provide definitive data on the production capacity of the two main potential reservoir units. It is probable that completion and testing of the gas bearing intervals will be undertaken by a smaller rig to save on costs, subsequent to drilling of the well and completion of the coring and wireline logging phase.

Participants in the Cambay Production Sharing Contract are:

Oilex Ltd (Operator) 30%
Oilex India (Holdings) Ltd (100% owned by Oilex Ltd) 15%
Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation 55%
