Jubilant Boasts Successful Flow Tests at Kharsang Well
Jubilant announced that KSG#60 (previously known as KPL-G), the third of the seven phase III development wells in the Kharsang Field, has successfully flowed oil and gas from separate horizons, and has put oil into production.
The well KSG#60, spud on October 5, 2011, was successfully drilled to a target depth of 1,470 meters Measured Depth ("MD") (1,432 meters True Vertical Depth) on November 27, 2011. The well was tested with a smaller capacity work-over rig which was mobilized on December 2, 2011.
Based on the results of the wireline log interpretation, drill cutting and coring operations, and formation pressure data from the Reservoir Dynamic Tester, the consortium identified twelve sand intervals totaling to approximately 74 meters of net sand for testing. The well flowed oil from the fourth interval between 1,304-1,310 meters MD from the Girujan Sand and is currently producing at a rate of around 125 bopd.
The two deeper sands at 1,432-1,435 meters and 1,400.5 -1,406.5 meters MD tested gas, which flowed at rates of 0.67 mmscfd and 0.78 mmscfd, respectively, through a 4 millimeter bean.
The third sand in the interval at 1,358-1,362 meters MD tested water.
The other eight remaining shallower intervals, totaling 55 meters of net sand, will be tested at a later date.
GeoEnpro Petroleum Ltd., a joint venture of GeoPetrol and Jubilant Enpro (a member of the wider Jubilant Bhartia Group), is the operator of the Kharsang Field. Jubilant holds a 25% interest in the block through its subsidiary, Jubilant Energy (Kharsang) Pvt Ltd. The other members of the consortium are Oil India Ltd and GeoPetrol.
