AWE Limited reports that operations have commenced at the Evandra-2 well site in preparation for side-tracking operations.
The side-tracked well is planned to be drilled to an expected total measured depth of 2,380 metres.
Evandra -2, located within the L1 production license, will be side-tracked from the existing Evandra-1 wellbore at a depth of approximately 1,900 metres. The side-track is designed to test the oil potential of the Dongara reservoir over the Evandra structure.
The Evandra-1 well, drilled in 2005 did not intersect the Dongara reservoir, with the prognosed reservoir interpreted to have been faulted out at the well location.
