Dragon Oil Tests Initial Rates of 2,223 bopd at Lam B/159 Well

Dragon Oil has completed and tested the Dzheitune (LAM) B/159 development well in Turkmenistan. The well, drilled by the Iran Khazar jackup to a depth of 9,514 feet (2,900 meters), was completed as a single producer. The well tested at a rate of 2,223 bopd.

Dragon Oil completed a total of eight wells on the Dzheitune (Lam) B platform, and now plans to deploy the jackup to the Lam A platform. The addition of several jackup rig slots added on the platform will allow the operator to drill and complete the Lam A/162 development well, before the rig performs a workover of the Lam A/127 well.

Currently, the NIS rig and Rig 40 are drilling the Lam 28/161 and 13/160 wells, respectively, which should be placed on production over the coming weeks. The Lam oil field is situated on Block 2 in the Cheleken Contract area offshore Turkmenistan, which Dragon Oil wholly owns and operates.
