Plato-2 is the fourth well in the current Flag Sandstone drilling program. The first well Albert-1 was successful in encountering oil and is currently on production. The next two wells, Romulus-1 and Remus-1 intersected oil in a thin sand on top of the Flag Sandstone. Tap interprets this sand may be part of a stratigraphically trapped pool of oil which could provide a drilling target later in the drill program.
A further 20 wells are currently planned for this year in the Harriet Joint Venture program with the aim to increase oil production and reserves. Following abandonment of Plato-2, the rig will commence drilling Harriet-A11 appraisal/development well which is targeting an interpreted undrained pool within the Harriet oil field area.
ROSE-4 DEVELOPMENT WELL
The Rose-4 well is located in the Harriet Joint Venture Permit, TL/1, and is being drilled as a directional well from the Linda production platform. The objective lies approximately 5.6 kilometers southeast of the platform.
The well has drilled to a deviated depth of 3,937 meters and will continue to drill ahead to the planned total deviated depth of 6,267 meters. It is anticipated that the well will take a further 11 days to reach total depth.
TL/6 Joint Venture participants are Apache as operator with 68.5%; Kufpec with 19.2771% and Tap with 12.2229%.
