Dragon Oil plc publishes an update on the wells completed in the Cheleken Contract Area in Turkmenistan in the third quarter of 2013 and production numbers for 3Q and September 2013.
Since the previous quarterly drilling update on 10 July 2013, Dragon Oil has completed two wells. Both wells were completed using the jack-up rig on the Dzheitune (Lam) C platform. The Dzheitune (Lam) C/183 well was drilled and completed as a dual producer to a depth of 2,758 metres in August; the depth of the Dzheitune (Lam) C/184 well was 2,900 metres and it was completed as a single producer in September. Both wells are producing with testing planned to commence following the commissioning of an additional line between the Dzheitune (Lam) C and 28 platforms. The rig has skidded to the next slot to drill the Dzheitune (Lam) C/185 well, one of the remaining two wells to be completed by the jack-up rig before the end of the year.
