Indago Petroleum Announced Drilling Update

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/4/2008, Location: Middle East

Indago Petroleum Limited announced a drilling update for the Al Jariya-1 well, located on the Jebel Hafit prospect in Block 31, adjacent to the border with Abu Dhabi. The Al Jariya-1 well, which commenced drilling on 28 January 2007 and is planned to drill to a total depth (TD) of 5,900 metres, has reached a depth of 5,131 metres. At this depth a strong flow of high temperature, high pressure salt water with high levels of carbon dioxide and some gas was encountered. During the process of controlling this flow the drill string became stuck. The Operator, RAK Petroleum PCL (holder of an approximately 50% interest), coordinated strenuous efforts to stop the salt water flow, which proved successful. Operations are now focused on ensuring the pressure integrity of the well and freeing the drill string.

Geologically, it is unclear at this stage whether the salt water flow was obtained from the Natih Formation objective carbonates, a stringer within the lower Fiqa Formation or indeed from some other source such as a fault intersection in the wellbore.
