The drilling of the Tidikas-1 exploration well on the Raseiniai licence onshore Lithuania has been successfully completed. The well encountered a combined oil column of almost 50 metres in two different lime stone formations and flowed oil to surface during drill stem tests. The well will be put on a long term production test.
Tidikas-1 was drilled vertically to the Cambrian sandstone at a measured depth of 1,413 metres and cores were taken from Silurian and Ordovician limestones, marl and dolomites.
Tidikas-1 was the second well drilled in 2015 on the licence. The Bedugnis-1 well, which was completed in August, was drilled vertically to a total measured depth of 1,067 meters and recorded oil shows while drilling but no oil flowed to surface. Both wells were targeting Silurian reefs and carbonate features mapped by an 80 square kilometres 3D seismic study completed in 2014.
