West Lineynoye Development
The L-10 well at West Lineynoye was successfully completed with a horizontal segment of about 282 metres in the Upper Jurassic J1-1 horizon at a depth of approximately -2,365 metres TVD. Of the 282 metre horizontal segment it is estimated that approximately 125 metres is effective net pay. The well was brought online on 4 August and the average flow rate over the last five days has been approximately 230 bopd. The well has cleaned up substantially and the current water cut is less than 5%. The adjacent L-8 vertical well is producing about 50 bopd from the same reservoir interval and the L-10 confirms the ability to use short segment horizontal drilling to greatly increase the flow rates.
