The first phase of field work consisting of moving a bottom hole
assembly for a pumping unit deeper in one of the wells, along with related modification of the surface components of the pumping unit, have been completed.
The operation is designed to reach a higher structural position in the reservoir approximately 380 meters from the original Zaniemysl-3 bottom hole
This field proven MPD technology maintains constant bottom hole
pressure throughout the drilling process resulting in optimum wellbore conditions for safe, efficient drilling and production.
The Dogu Ayazli-2, which was drilled to a bottom hole
location approximately 600 meters (1,969 feet) west northwest of the discovery well, will be tested when it is tied back to the Dogu Ayazli production tripod which will be installed later this year.
The well was then shut in to allow the bottom hole
pressure to stabilize and will remain shut in until 8am central European time Monday, May 26, when the bottom hole
pressure gauges will be retrieved.
The probe is located in a non-magnetic bottom hole
assembly that typically includes a collar, orientation sub and a bent sub with a bit when jetting or a mud motor.
Canyon Creek has now confirmed the bottom hole
pressure at 5600 psi.
The well measured a total depth of 5,692 meters, with a bottom hole
static temperature (BHST) of 455 degrees F (235 degrees C), and pressures exceeding 14,000 psi.
Throughout the entire operation, a Geoservices Measurement-While-Drilling (MWD) tool, located in the bottom hole
assembly, provided real-time directional drilling information to guide the drill bit to the proposed target on the exit side.
The drilling rig is being mobilized to the C-67 well pad in preparation for drilling the J-67 well to a bottom hole
location approximately 600 meters northeast of the surface well pad.
We retrieved the packer and ran in 2-3/8" tubing, rods and the standard equipment bottom hole
With these logs and the estimated bottom hole
pressure of 5000 psi, this well appears to have met all of our expectations," continued Orr.
