Oilex Ltd announce that the Cambay Joint Venture has awarded the fracture stimulation programme for Cambay-77H to Schlumberger. Schlumberger was one of a number of international services companies operating in India that participated in the competitive tendering process. Oilex, as Operator, will be working with Schlumberger on the fracture stimulation programme details for Cambay-77H which shall be implemented after the drilling rig has been demobilised from site.
The "plug and perf" completion design incorporates the lessons learned from Cambay-76H and recommendations from the forensic engineering report. It is a simpler, more robust design consisting of four stages with two fracture initiation points in each stage representing eight fractures in the 350 metre lateral section.
