Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/2/2008, Location: Asia

Roc Oil (China) Company announced the commencement of a multi-well exploration/appraisal drilling programme in Block 22/12, Beibu Gulf, Offshore China. On 1 January 2008 the Premium "Murmanskaya" jack-up rig commenced drilling the Wei 6-12W-1 well on the Wei 6-12 West Prospect, a stratigraphic-structural feature approximately 2.5 kilometres northwest of the Wei 6-12S-1 oil discovery which the Joint venture made in 2006.

The well, which is in 30 m of water, is expected to reach Total Depth of approximately 2,425 metres later this month. The commencement of the drilling programme was delayed by approximately two weeks because of rig equipment malfunctions which have now been rectified.

On 2 January 2007 the current operation was drilling ahead in 17˝ inch hole at 560 metres. The second well in the programme will test the Wei 6-12 East Prospect, a structural-stratigraphic feature 1.7 kilometres east of the Wei 6-12S-1 oil discovery. The third well in the programme will be Wei 12-2-2 which will appraise a structure in the southern part of the Block which tested oil in 1993.

There is a potential for a fourth well in the form of a sidetrack/step-out if one of the first three wells makes a discovery which requires immediate appraisal. All of the wells will be operated by ROC using the Premium "Murmanskaya" jack-up drilling rig. The entire drilling programme is expected to be completed by the end of 1Q 2008.
