The well will be drilled from the Linda platform, approximately 17 km northeast of Varanus Island in 33 m of water, and sidetracked to a target location at latitude 20 degress 32' 31.26"S and longitude 115 degrees 42' 14.9"E.
The Linda North-1 well spudded on January 19, 2009, and the well is currently at approximately 98 meters measured depth. Current activity running in hole to set conductor.
The Linda North-1 well is programmed to reach a total depth of approximately 2,640 meters TVDSS allowing sufficient penetration of the reservoir to achieve production requirements. The well is planned to take 24 days.
