Pétrolia says that the drilling phase of the Haldimand 4 well was completed on December 30th. The drilling was conducted within budget and in accordance with engineering projections.
Drilling started on November 25th and was completed in 35 days, which met the predicted schedule. Haldimand 4 is a horizontal well, which was drilled without hydraulic fracturing, and has a total length of 2630 meters. The drilling of the Haldimand 4 well represents an important step in the exploration work necessary to bring this reservoir on production.
At 400 meters, in order to intercept the maximum of natural fractures, the drilling was gradually deviated in a southeast direction until it reached an angle of 78 degrees from vertical.
