Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/13/2012, Location: Asia

Greenfields Petroleum Corporation announced that Bahar Energy Operating Company (BEOC), the operating company for Bahar Energy Limited (BEL) in which Greenfields owns a 33.33% interest, has set intermediate casing (9 5/8 inch) at 1,895 meters (6,218 feet) true vertical depth ("TVD") on the Gum Deniz 601 well.

The well was spud on August 20, 2012 from a pad on Gum Deniz Island in Azerbaijan utilizing the Great Wall 88 rig to develop a field extension in the north of Gum Deniz field that is expected to be un-drained. The well has a target depth of 3,500 meters (11,483 feet) TVD. A second location is being prepared as a follow up well.

Greenfields also announces the two new modern Western-style workover rigs are being deployed offshore and commissioned by the rig contractor. One rig is being located on Platform 196 for workover and recompletion operations on the Bahar gas field and is scheduled to commence work at the end of September. The rig will repair and recomplete gas-condensate wells that have, in most cases, been shut in for years due to operational difficulties. These wells are believed by management of Greenfields to have significant potential in untested behind-pipe zones. Two or three recompletions in the Bahar field are expected to be performed this year.

The second rig is being located on Platform 2 for drilling operations in the Gum Deniz oil field. The rig contractor is continuing with modifications to the mud system and the top drive to accommodate the drilling operations. These offshore rig modifications have been impacted by severe weather during the past two weeks. When the rig is certified and available to BEOC, drilling operations will begin with a current spud target date of mid-October 2012. This rig will drill development wells in the under-developed northern area of the Gum Deniz field. One or two wells are expected to be drilled with this rig in 2012, and additional drilling activity will continue into 2013 and beyond.

Greenfields also announces the completion of the 3D seismic project acquisition program is targeted for October 2012, weather permitting. Processing and interpretation will follow during the fourth quarter. If the interpretation confirms an attractive exploration prospect in the Bahar-2 exploration area, BEL intends to develop an appropriate drilling strategy to evaluate any such prospect. Drilling in the Bahar-2 area could occur in late 2013 or early 2014.
