Oilex Ltd announce that Cambay-77H well drilling operations successfully completed setting and cementing the 9 5/8 inch casing at approximately 1,653m Measured Depth (MD).
The casing was set in a suitable formation to ensure well integrity whilst drilling the anticipated over-pressured target reservoir section. An integrated stress test of the rig systems was successfully completed to ensure operational integrity prior to drilling the final ~ 26m of the intermediate hole section and setting casing. The condition of the wellbore subsequent to the rig repair period was found to be very good.
The rig is currently preparing to drill ahead in 8 ½ inch hole into the target reservoir section. Elevated gas readings are anticipated through the target formation to Total Depth (TD).
