Oilex Ltd. announced Wednesday the commencement of the Cambay-77H production test in Cambay Production Sharing Contract in Cambay Basin, Gujarat, India Tuesday Nov. 4. Instrumentation has been successfully deployed down hole and will record pressure data for the duration of the test. Upon completion, the instrumentation will be recovered and the data downloaded for analysis.
Oilex intends to announce the start of the shut-in period and the successful recovery of the instrumentation and data. An announcement regarding initial test results will be made after a preliminary analysis has been completed.
The production test is the final major field activity for Cambay-77H and when concluded, all the proof of concept objectives will have been successfully completed. Oilex will then focus on putting Cambay-77H into production as soon as possible, as well as incorporating the proof of concept outcomes into the planning for the next drilling campaign.
As announced Oct. 31, significant outcomes from Cambay-77H have already been achieved and those below should enhance commercialization of the Cambay Field.
Managing Director of Oilex, Ron Miller, said:
“Cambay-77H is the first horizontal well with multi-stage fracture treatments to successfully be production tested in India. Cambay-77H has also demonstrated that the Cambay Field is amenable to this technology which has now been successfully implemented in India. The flowback and production test results are critical and Oilex is confident that insights from this well, when incorporated into future designs, will lead to optimised production wells. The hydrocarbon liquid content is also very welcome given its positive influence on revenue. We look forward to announcing the flowback operations and production test results subsequent to completing analysis of the test data.”
