Brightoil Aims to Commission Xinjiang Well in September
|Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Hong Kong-listed Brightoil Petroleum said in a statement Tuesday that it expects to commission the onshore Dina 1-2 well in September this year. The well is located in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The company expects the well to produce 550,000 cubic meters per day of natural gas and 25 tonnes per day of condensate after commissioning.
The company had initially projected a natural gas production rate of 250,000 cubic meters per day, but it raised its expectations after trial projects conducted from May to late-July showed that the well could flow natural gas at a higher rate, a spokesperson representing Brightoil told Rigzone on Tuesday.
Brightoil is working in partnership with China National Petroleum Corporation to develop the Xinjiang Tarim Basin Dina 1 Gas Field. The gas field covers an area of 28,827 square miles (74,766 square kilometers). Dina 1-2 is the third well that is being developed by the partnership.
