Santos Drills Ahead at Henry-2 ST Well
AWE has reported that the Henry-2 development sidetrack well, Henry-2 DW1, was preparing to set a kick off plug prior to redrilling the 12-1/4" hole. During the week, attempts were made to set the 9-5/8" casing down to the top of the Waarre A reservoir at a depth of 2,041 meters.
These attempts failed because of tight hole conditions. Prior to this, the well had drilled into the top of the Waarre A reservoir to a measured depth of 2,047 meters.
After redrilling the 12-1/4" hole and setting the 9-5/8" casing, the Henry-2 development well will drill through and complete a horizontal section through the Waarre A reservoir.
The Henry-2 DW1 development well is located about 3.5km NW of the Henry-1 discovery well and approximately 12 kilometers northwest of the Casino gas field in the VIC/P44 Block.
Henry-2 DW1 is the last well in the current drilling program, and will develop the Henry field discovered by Henry-1 well in July 2005.
