Oil Search Fishing Down Deep at NW Paua 1 ST2

Oil Search reports that on 20 March, the NW Paua 1 ST2 well was at a depth of 2,850 metres and undertaking fishing operations. Progress for the week was 209 metres.

NW Paua 1 is located in PDL 5, five kilometres northeast of the Moran oil field and six kilometres northwest of Paua 1x. The well is being drilled by the PPL 233 Joint Venture. Paua 1x was drilled on the steeply dipping and faulted forelimb of the Paua anticline in the mid 1990s and encountered oil shows in the Toro Sandstone and recovered oil from the Iagifu Sandstone.

NW Paua 1 is targeting the Toro and Digimu sandstones in a more optimal location on the known hanging-wall structure. The planned total depth of the sidetrack is approximately 3,600 metres.
