A second coil tubing operation is now in progress on the Cardiff-2A well, following further buildup of material inside the well to 150m (500 feet) above the top of the K3E pay interval at 4,800m (16,000 feet), which is inhibiting that zone from flowing. The well is presently producing gas and condensate from a higher pay zone, which will assist in lifting the blockage material to surface.
Other Drilling Operations
Preparation of the Pukengahu site is underway adjacent to the Oru structure. In the event of success at Oru-1, the Pukengahu well will be drilled during December. Construction of the Heaphy-1 well-site is also about to commence. In Papua New Guinea, construction of the Douglas-1 wellsite is well advanced. Shipping movements to bring the rig from USA to PNG are scheduled for end of year.
