Oilex Ltd announce that Cambay-77H well drilling operations successfully completed setting and cementing the 13 3/8 inch casing at 590m Measured Depth (MD). The casing was set at a slightly higher depth than anticipated in order to land the casing in a suitable formation and the rig is currently preparing to drill ahead in 12 ½ inch hole.
Cambay-77H is located adjacent to the Cambay-76H horizontal well that underwent a successful multiple staged fracture stimulation programme along its 633m lateral section in 2012. However, it was suspended prior to testing due to downhole mechanical problems. Prior to suspending the well, gas and condensate flowed to surface during well control operations.
