OGX Strikes Oil in Campos Appraisals
OGX has encountered hydrocarbons in the Albian section of well 3-OGX-40D-RJS and in the Albian-Cenomanian section of well 3-OGX-41D-RJS, both appraisal wells from the Pipeline and Waikiki accumulations, respectively.
The OGX-40 well found an oil column of nearly 669 feet (204 meters) with a net pay of about 351 feet (107 meters) in carbonate reservoirs in the Albian section. OGX-41 discovered an oil column of about 486 feet (148 meters) with a net pay of about 302 feet (92 meters), also in carbonate reservoirs in the Albian-Cenomanian section.
