During testing, Well I101 flowed at a stabilized rate of 375 barrels of oil per day and 3.7 million cubic feet of gas through a 20/64 inch choke, with a wellhead flowing pressure of 2,130 psi.
Well I101 was the first onshore well drilled by JKX in Ukraine in 1995. It penetrated a small oil accumulation in the Tournasian sands about 5 km from the main Ignatovskoye field. The well was never placed on production due to problems with the completion, The Kremco 900 rig re-entered the well in late April this year and sidetracked it to a slightly up-dip location. The well penetrated approximately 15m of oil bearing sandstones. Drilling was halted above the oil/water contact to minimize water production.
The Kremco 900 rig has now moved to the Zaplavskoye license where it is drilling an exploration well.
