Southern Asia-focused Jubilant Energy announced Friday that it has spud the final well of its seven-well Phase III development drilling campaign in the oil-producing onshore Kharsang field in the Arunachal Pradesh state of India.
The well, KPL-B, is located in the southern area of the field, west of the KSG#55 and KSG#62 wells. It is being drilled with the main objective being the appraisal of the S-00 reservoir sands of the field and a secondary objective of appraising the M-00 and T-00 sand layers.
The well will be deviated by approximately 2,250 feet (686 meters) to the south from the existing plinth of well KSG#40 and will be drilled to a target depth of approximately 4,590 feet (1,400 meters) true vertical depth. The well is expected to take up to five weeks to drill.
Jubilant also reported Friday that its sixth development well, KSG#63, which was completed on May 13, 2012, to a depth of 3,700 feet (1,128 meters), will be tested with a work-over rig that is expected to be mobilized soon. Testing here is expected to take approximately three weeks.
Jubilant currently has a portfolio of nine blocks in India, of which Kharsang is the only producing field. This week marked the company's entry into Myanmar after Jubilant was awarded block number PSC-I by the government of that country.
