Following “highly encouraging results” from the recently drilled MD 250 well in Trinidad, Range Resources Limited revealed Thursday that it will drill a follow-up development well from the same drilling pad, named MD 51-2.
The new project will be a directional well that will be drilled to a total depth of 3,900 feet to test the Forest and Cruse sands, which were encountered via the MD 250 well. Range stated in a company release that it will be submitting the relevant approvals to spud the well to the regulatory bodies in Trinidad “shortly”.
Initial log evaluations on the MD 250 development well identified multiple hydrocarbon bearing zones, with an estimated net pay of over 140 feet. Production testing operations of the MD 250 and MD 51-2 wells will be performed once all drilling operations on the pad area are completed.
The MD 51-2 well is an additional well to Range’s previously announced 2016 drilling program. The remaining scheduled wells include two development wells in Morne Diablo, one development well in Beach Marcelle, and one exploration well in the Guayaguayare block. MD 51-2 will be drilled by RRDSL, a wholly owned subsidiary of LandOcean Energy Services Co., Ltd with the same rig that drilled the MD 250 well.
