Roxi Petroleum is pleased to further update the market with news of progress at its flagship BNG asset.

Deep Wells

Deep Well A5

The well was spudded in July 2013 and drilled to a total depth of 4,442 meters with casing set to a depth of 4,077 meters to allow open hole testing. Core sampling revealed the existence of a gross oil-bearing interval of at least 105 meters from 4,332 meters to at least 4,437 meters.

In February 2015, we announced that the major part of coil tubing had been removed from the well. The 50 meters of coil tubing remaining in the well, which still contained drilling fluids, was trapped at a depth of 2,996 meters with a metallic object believed to have been dropped during the clean-up works.

The blockage at Deep Well A5 has now been cleared and pressure in the well has returned to levels encountered when it was originally drilled. The stuck pipe at the bottom of the well remains but is not expected to affect the outcome of the 30-day well test.

The equipment required for the 30-day test has been delivered to site and the test is set to start following the completion of the required preparatory work.
