Range Resources provides Trinidad drilling programme update

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

Range has advised that the QUN 158R (renamed QUN 160) development well in Trinidad successfully spudded on 9 November 2016. The well is located in the Morne Diablo field and is drilling ahead to a total depth of 2600 ft, expected to take approximately three weeks to reach target depth.

The QUN 160 well is the fourth development well drilled by Range in Trinidad this year. The well is a re-drill of the previously drilled QUN 158 well, targeting the same Upper Cruse and Lower Forest sands. The well is being drilled by RRDSL* using the 1000 m rig, which has been granted all necessary regulatory and government approvals in November 2016.

The GY218 SE well located in the Beach Marcelle field is the last well from the five-well campaign to be drilled this year. The well will be drilled by RRDSL using the 2000 m rig, which is currently being prepared for regulatory and government approval. The well location has been completed and the rig is already rigged up on location. The well is expected to spud by early December 2016.
