South Asia-focused Jubilant Energy announced Monday that it has spud the third well of its Phase III Extension development drilling campaign in the oil-producing Kharsang Field in Arunachal Pradesh, India. Jubilant plans six wells in total in this drilling campaign.
The well, designated KPL-3E-6, is located in the central part of the field and is aimed at exploiting untapped hydrocarbons in the infill area between wells KSG No.11 and KSG No.25. The well is targeting the H-00 layer, with the G-00 and I-00 layers as secondary objectives.
The well will be drilled to a target depth of approximately 3,350 feet and is expected to take approximately three weeks to drill.
The second development well, spud March 23, was successfully drilled to a target depth of 3,700 feet. Twelve potentially hydrocarbon-bearing sands have been encountered in the well, with a total net pay of some 165 feet. Seven of these wells appear to be oil bearing, said Jubilant.
