Trinity has concluded drilling operations at its El Dorado exploration well within the PGB license offshore the West Coast of Trinidad (Trinity 70% operated interest).
The Trinity operated El Dorado exploration well was spudded on 6th December 2013 utilising the WS-152 jackup rig. The primary objective of the well was to test an undrilled fault block on the west flank of the Trinity operated Brighton field.
The well was drilled to a total depth of 6,174 feet measured depth ("MD") and intersected a shallow gas sand in the Pliocene section and marginal thin bedded oil pay in the Miocene section. In aggregate approximately 13 ft of net oil sands and 32 ft of net gas sands were encountered, however these are not deemed commercial and so the well will now be permanently plugged and abandoned.
