Eland Oil & Gas completes remedial work on Gbetiokun-3 well

Eland Oil & Gas, an oil and gas production and development company operating in West Africa with an initial focus on Nigeria, has installed a remedial tubing patch on the Gbetiokun-3 well in licence OML40.

As previously announced by the company necessary remedial work has been undertaken on the Gbetiokun-3 short string. The well was drilled as an appraisal well in 4Q18 with the dual completion on the D9000 and E4000 reservoirs being installed in 1Q19. During pressure testing, a small leak was identified on the shallower D9000 completion string. Following further diagnostic logging, the leak was located, and a remedial tubing patch has now been successfully installed.

At present, the short string is being produced with the temporary facilities on location. Initial gross rates of some 3880 bpd have been recorded at a choke size of 36/64 in. The deep E4000 interval was tested in 1Q19 and achieved choke-limited gross rates of 3000 bpd, in line with pre-drill expectations.

The company expects the field to be brought onstream in July through the Early Production Facility, presently being installed, with initial gross production of approximately 12 000 bpd (net: 5400 bpd) from the Gbetiokun-1 and -3 wells.

George Maxwell, CEO of Eland, commented: "We are pleased to have successfully completed the remedial work on Gbetiokun-3 and are very happy with the achieved flow-rates of almost 7000 bpd. With Gbetiokun-1 performance already established at over 5000 bpd, we look forward to updating all shareholders as we bring the field on stream later this month."
