Galilee Energy Limited provides an update on current Lavaca County drilling operations.
Hoffer B Prospect
The Hoffer B 1 well, which was spudded on 6 January 2015, has now reached 13,000 ft (3,962 m) measured depth. At current depth the well is in the Lower Wilcox zone, which is one of the secondary targets. The primary target, yet to be intersected, is the Basal Lower Wilcox, the top of which is prognosed at a depth of 13,350 ft (4,069m).
Following the last update, the intermediate casing string has been set at a depth of 11,062 ft (3,371m), following the intersection of a number of strong gas shows. A decision was made to run casing without running wireline logs, as wellbore conditions did not allow logging to proceed. Cased hole logs will be run in conjunction with the open hole logs of the lower part of the well to evaluate these strong shows.
