Parsons Pond Location, Newfoundland
(Click to Enlarge)
Contact Exploration reports that the Parson's Pond No. 1 well currently being drilled in West Newfoundland, Canada encountered a fault zone at approximately 1,060 meters that
prevented further drilling with the existing drill string. In order to allow
for drilling deeper into the Daniel's Harbour target zone and or a completion
for potential up hole horizons the drill string was cemented in place.
Due to spring breakup the drilling rig is going to be released. Over this
period of time the well participants will be reviewing all technical data
obtained to determine the optimum way to proceed.
