The top of the Latrobe Group reservoirs, the primary target, were intersected close to prognosis at a measured depth of approximately 1558 meters (1397 meters true vertical depth). Indications of hydrocarbons were intersected throughout the Latrobe Group.
Over the course of the following days the anticipated operations for the West Triton will be to run wireline logs and conduct a sampling program to ascertain the presence and extent of moveable hydrocarbons. The interpretation of this data will help define the forward program for the well. It is also anticipated 9 5/8 inch casing will be run and the well suspended as a potential future oil producer.
