Sarha-2 Drills Extra 200 Meters Of Horizontal Oil Pay For Extended Production Test

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/13/2008, Location: Middle East

The Sarha-2 well in Block 56, Oman, has completed drilling an horizontal well in the Sarha Field to a measured depth of 2138 metres, giving an horizontal intersection of approximately 700 metres in the Al Khlata reservoir.

Drilling was extended by an additional 210 metres to incorporate approximately 200 metres of additional horizontal oil pay in good quality sands interpreted beyond the planned total depth of 1930 metres.

Production casing including screens to reduce sand production will now be run and a progressive cavity pump installed in the well.

A short term production test will be conducted with the rig in place to determine the well’s productivity and to ensure that the installed pump has adequate capacity for the well.

Temporary surface production facilities will be installed after the rig is released and an extended well test will be conducted for an initial 120 day test period.

Arrangements are being finalised to truck the produced oil to a nearby (25 kms) pipeline terminal for transport to a crude export terminal on the coast.
