Sonoro Energy Provides Update on LG-1 Up Dip Drilling

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/24/2017, Location: Asia

Sonoro Energy has announced that drilling operations at its LG-1 Up-dip well in West Sulawesi, Indonesia have advanced to a depth of 297 meters, where a gas kick to surface occurred as the drill string was pulled out of the hole.

While drilling through the upper hole section on Sunday, Oct. 22, personnel from Sonoro’s drilling contractor PT Advanced Services Indonesia ('ASI') encountered hydrocarbons in the C1-C5 range in the return mud across several thin sands to a depth of 297m, while operations continued to weight up to about 9.9 ppg.

The gas kick was encountered as crews pulled the string out of the hole to prepare for logging and intermediate casing operations. Gas flowed to the surface and was diverted to the flare. Oil shows were also present in the mud.

Sonoro is encouraged by these early signs of oil and gas, and now plans to stabilize the well before logging and casing the well to 297m, so that ASI can then proceed to coring from 300 to 500m where the three main target sands are expected.

'While it’s still too early to assume what we may encounter between 300 and 500m, we’re excited to see the presence of hydrocarbons prior to reaching our zones of interest below 300m. So far our geological drilling prognosis has been correct but further coring, logging and testing are needed to determine the commercial viability of the Budong Budong project,' says Richard Wadsworth, Sonoro’s Chief Executive Officer.
