Dragon Oil Completes Testing at Dzheitune Well

Dragon Oil has completed the Dzheitune (Lam) B/155 development well on its Cheleken Contract area fields in the Caspian Sea. The Iran Khazar jackup drilled B/155, the sixth well drilled from the Dzheitune (Lam) B platform.

B/155 well was drilled to a depth of 9,186 feet (2,800 meters) and completed on a dual production basis. The well crossed several oil bearing sands with good results in some pay sections. A combined test produced 783 bopd, with an initial rate of 611 bopd from the short string and 172 bopd from the long string.

Dragon is reviewing the data and plans to further test the well. The company will use the results from this well to update their geological modeling scenarios, and also its future drilling plans in that area of the field. The Iran Khazar rig has since skidded to the next slot and spudded the B/157 well; while another rig, the NIS, is currently drilling the 28/156 well.
