Rockhopper Reports Production Boost at Guendalina Operation

Junior oil firm Rockhopper Exploration reported Tuesday a significant boost to gas production at the Guendalina operation in the Mediterranean.

The Guendalina project has experienced a gross production increase of 57,000 standard cubic metres per day (scm/d) and overall gross production currently stands at approximately 190,000 scm/d, which is approximately 223 barrels of oil equivalent per day. A planned sidetrack to the GUE2 well at Guendalina is due to take place during the summer of 2015.

Elsewhere in the Mediterranean, the Environmental Impact Assessment of Rockhopper’s Ombrina Mare Field Development Plan has been approved by the Minister for the Environment. The decree now needs to be countersigned by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and the Ministry of Economic Development. Rockhopper Exploration also revealed that construction has commenced at its Civita development, with first gas expected by the end of 2015.

In an update on Isobel Deep, located in the North Falkland Basin, Rockhopper reported that casing will be constructed in the well to provide additional flexibility while drilling, after a sand interval was penetrated with suspected elevated formation pressure and oil shows. This development means that further announcements on the results of the well are likely to emerge in June 2015.
