Carnarvon Set to Drill Ahead at Thai Well

Carnarvon Petroleum Limited said that the Na Sanun-1 Re-drill (NS-1RD) well in Thailand has been cased and cemented to a depth of 948 meters above the potential volcanic reservoir section encountered in NS-1.

Drilling ahead through the volcanic section is anticipated in the next day or two, and a successful evaluation will result in the well being completed for production testing which is anticipated to occur over the next 7-10 days.

Na Sanun-4 Appraisal Well (NS-4)

Carnarvon also said that flow testing at the NS-4 well is continuing. NS-4 is currently flowing clean oil at a stable rate of around 720 bopd of 29.9 degree API crude through 24/64” choke.

Second Drill Rig

A second Aztec rig is on site and being prepared for drilling which is anticipated to commence in approximately two weeks. The first exploration well L44-G using this rig will be located 7.3 km north northwest of the POE-9 discovery well on the Na Sanun East Oil Field structure. The primary objective is the upper volcanic zone, similar reservoir to that producing at NS-4 and POE-9 discoveries.
