JKX Oil & Gas announce the completion of its development well NN-80 in the Novo-Nikolaevskoye field, Ukraine. Following clean-up, well NN-80 produced at a stabilised rate of 4.98 MMcfd and 51 bpd condensate through a 1-inch choke with a flowing wellhead pressure of 587 psi during the multi-choke test sequence. The well has now been placed on production.
Well NN-80 was drilled to a measured depth of 1,794 metres (1,715.8m TVD) and targeted at the primary upper V15 Visean sandstone reservoir. During drilling, encouraging shows were also encountered in the lower V15 sandstone which warranted deepening the well by some 50 metres to allow completion and testing of the lower reservoir at a later stage.
