FOGL: Drilling Restarts at Humpback, New Well for Isobel/Elaine Complex

Falkland Oil and Gas Limited announced Friday that drilling has recommenced at the Humpback well, following the resolution of equipment issues which took longer than expected, and revealed that a further well will be drilled on the Isobel/Elaine complex.

The Humpback well, which was spud on June 13, 2015 and is testing multiple stacked reservoirs within the Cretaceous Diomedea fan complex, has experienced a series of unforeseen equipment and operational issues, according to FOGL. The company now anticipates that the results of the well will be available in early October 2015.

The new well at the Isobel/Elaine complex will target the Isobel Deep reservoir, which was oil bearing when discovered in April but could not be logged or sampled for mechanical reasons. This well is scheduled to be drilled after the completion of Humpback.
