The Board of Golden Gate Petroleum Ltd report the commencement of drilling operations at the Eagle Ford project. The Pioneer Drilling rig #28 commenced drilling operations of the Cutlass West A #1 well on 29 April 2012 (US Central Standard Time). Lightning Oil Company is the operator.
The Cutlass West A #1 well is drilling ahead at 439 feet and will be drilled to an approximate depth of 9,200 feet and is estimated to take 27 days to reach total depth. This well will drill through the Eagle Ford and Edwards formations. Whole cores will be taken in various horizons. Once all prospective formations are evaluated, the well will be plugged back to the Eagle Ford formation where the horizontal section will be drilled. The well will then be cased followed by preparation for fracture stimulation which will be subject to rig and equipment availability.
