Harriet JV Spuds Romulus-1 Exploration Well
Tap Oil reports that the Romulus-1 exploration well spudded on April 3, 2005 with the Ensco 56 jackup. The well is located in the Harriet Joint Venture Permit, TL/6 offshore Australia, and is being drilled from the South Plato production platform. The objective lies approximately 1.8 kilometers west-northwest from the platform.
The Romulus-1 exploration well is a deviated well, designed to test a small four-way dip closed mound within the Double Island sandstone. The well is expected to take 3 days to reach total depth, and is the first of two prospects to be drilled from the South Plato Platform. Should it be successful, it will be brought onto production immediately.
