Exploration well spudded offshore China
Published by Nicholas Woodroof,
The well objective is to evaluate the structure, sand and oil column thickness in the undeveloped WZ 6-12 Mid Prospect, which is located on the footwall side of a major east-west trending normal fault that separates it from the WZ 6-12 South field. In the event of a discovery, the intention is to integrate its development with the adjacent WZ 6-12 North and South fields.
The current operation is drilling the 12 ½ in. hole at 681 m MD, towards section TD at 1440 m MD. The well is anticipated to take about 17 days from spud to drill to a planned total depth of 2025 m MD.
