Neon Energy Limited, an Australian-based petroleum exploration and production company, provided Wednesday the following update regarding drilling operations at the Ca Ngu-1 exploration well, located in Block 120, offshore Vietnam.
As of Nov. 26 drilling has reached the 13.375 inch casing point, at a depth of 1,991 feet (607 meters). Once casing is set, Operator Eni will drill ahead through the upper objectives, which are stacked clastic reservoirs of Pliocene age.
