Tullow All Wet at G1 on Block CB-ON/1

Tullow Oil announced that the G1 well, located in Block CB-ON/1 onshore India, has failed to encounter hydrocarbons and has been plugged and abandoned.

Drilling operations at G1 commenced on August 16 and reached a total depth of 2,300 meters on September 8. Sands in the main objective were well-developed over a large vertical interval between approximately 985 meters and 1,800 meters but petrophysical log evaluation and fluid sampling proved them to be water-bearing.

This latest well in the current campaign was drilled in the northern part of the CB-ON/1 block. The rig will now move to the site of the geologically independent F1 prospect, which lies in the south of the block. Drilling is expected to commence in late September and is scheduled to continue for approximately four weeks.
