India-focused Jubilant Energy reported Monday that it has spud the second well of its Phase III Extension development drilling campaign on the oil-producing Kharsang field in the Upper Assam Basin, onshore northeast India.
The KPL-3E-4 well, located in the northwestern area of the field, is being drilled as an infill development well with the H-00 reservoir as the primary objective and the G-00 reservoir as the secondary target. The well is to be deviated by approximately 1,170 feet towards the southeast from the existing plinth of well KSG No. 27 and will be drilled to a target depth of approximately 3,550 feet measured depth.
The well is expected to take up to three weeks to drill.
The first development well of the current campaign on the Kharsang field, KSG No. 65, was spud Feb. 18 and was successfully drilled to a target depth of 3,755 feet. Nine potentially hydrocarbon-bearing sands were encountered in the well, with total net pay being 144 feet. Eight of these sands appear to be oil-bearing.
