Leni Gas & Oil announce Trinidad Drilling Update
LGO announced that it has now spudded the sixth well, GY-669, in its 30 well re-development of the Goudron Field in Trinidad. Four wells will be drilled and completed from this drilling pad and resulting production will be on-stream by end 2014. The GY-669 well is currently drilling ahead in the Goudron Sandstone formation.
This drill site designated Pad-3 is located approximately 1,500 feet southeast from Pad-2 and 2,000 feet from Pad-1. Pad-3 will be used to drill a total of four new wells, three wells (GY-669, GY-670 and GY-671) are targeting the primary Gros Morne Sandstone reservoir that has proven to be prolific in the recent wells. Well GY-669 will also test the deeper Lower Cruse Sandstone that has recently been completed successfully in GY-667 with encouraging production results. The final well, GY-672, will be primarily a Goudron Sandstone well across a known fault to tap reserves in a previously successful, but under-drilled, portion of the field.
Well GY-669, being drilled with Well Services Rig-20, has an anticipated total depth of 3,925 feet measured depth at a location approximately 400 feet north of the surface location. Total net pay in the well is expected to be in the range 250 to 300 feet.
LGO also confirms that the new 2,000 barrel sales tank has now been completed and initial sales from it will be made shortly. With this extra tankage in place the production from the five recently completed wells; GY664 to GY-668, can be optimized and the clean-up of GY-666 and GY-668 will be concluded.
Neil Ritson, LGO’s Chief Executive, commented:
“The drilling program continues to advance at an excellent pace and we can look forward to a further rise in field production. Work will also now commence on the additional infrastructure we will need to handle the increased volume of oil; including a further 700 barrels of bulk storage and a lease automated custody transfer meter to manage a larger volume of sales.”
