Sun Resources NL has commenced drilling operations at the Jack Howe #1H well location within Sun's Normangee Oil Project. Sun (50%WI and Operator) will execute the drilling program using the Nabors Drilling USA LP Rig #53 to re-enter the existing vertical pilot well bore at the Jack Howe #1H well location.
The initial steps of the drilling operation will include:
- setting up over the well location and re-entering the existing, cased vertical well bore,
- drilling out the cement plugs and drilling a new deviated well bore to build angle toward horizontal,
- continuing to drill the well in a northerly trajectory to drill and case approximately 5,500 feet (1,676 meters) of horizontal well bore.
