Kuwait Drills Successful Appraisal Well in Abu Sennan Concession

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/5/2014, Location: Africa

JV partner Beach Energy reports that the Kuwait Energy-operated El Salmiya-3 well in the Abu Sennan concession has been completed as a Cretaceous Abu Roash 'C' Formation producer. The well was designed to appraise the oil discovery from July last year in the lower Cretaceous Kharita Formation, however, encountered hole problems when drilling the 8 1/2” hole.

The well encountered approx. eight metres of net oil pay in the Abu Roash 'C', of which a six metre interval was perforated. During the flow test the reservoir achieved a rate of 4,800 barrels per day of 39 degree API crude (plus 6 MMscfd, and no water) through a 64/64” choke. The reservoir is currently undergoing a ‘flow after flow’ testing program to determine the optimum choke size to produce the well.

This result underlines the stacked potential of the El Salmiya Field, which is now producing from the Abu Roash 'C', the Abu Roash 'E' and the Kharita Formation. The drilling rig is currently rigging up to spud El Salmiya–4, which will further appraise the extent of the Abu Roash reservoirs, as well as the Bahariya and Kharita Formation discoveries.

Partners in the Abu Sennan Concession are: Beach 22%; Kuwait Energy Egypt 50% and operator; Dover Investments 28%).
