Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 12 October 2017 03:45

Mubadala Petroleum has started a three-well drilling program at the Manora oil field in the northern Gulf of Thailand, says partner Tap Oil. 

The program in the G1/48 concession, using the Atwood Orca jackup drilling unit, comprises two development wells and an exploration well.

The MNA-18 and MNA-19 infill wells have been planned to develop proved undeveloped reserves and will be drilled to final total depths of 3107m and 2366m (measured depth) respectively. They will be completed with electric submersible pumps (ESPs), with drilling and completion planned to take approximately 21 days for each well on a trouble free basis. 

The two development wells are expected to increase Manora production performance.

The Joint Venture is also intending to drill an exploration well to test the L-Prospect in the Manora production licence area after the conclusion of the two development wells.

Tap will provide an update upon completion of the drilling of the two development wells.
