The Simpson-8 well has been drilled to total depth and electric logs indicate that the reservoir at this location has been swept by adjacent production wells in the field. Consequently, the Simpson-8 well bore was abandoned and the borehole sidetracked to commence drilling of Tanami-7 to evaluate possible additional reserves to the south of the Tanami Oil Field. The Tanami-7 well reached total depth today. Electric logs indicate the absence of a hydrocarbon column at this location and accordingly the well will now be plugged and abandoned. It is now planned to further sidetrack the well and drill Simpson-6 to evaluate the potential for additional oil reserves. It is anticipated that Simpson-6 appraisal well will reach its target in the next few days.
The next wells in Tap's drilling schedule are anticipated to be:
It is expected that the drilling of these wells will commence by mid-January. TL/1 Harriet Joint Venture Participants are Apahce as operator with 68.5%; Tap Oil with 12.2229% and Kufpec with 19.2771%.
