The objective was to add further production at Manora through additional development drilling and to potentially add further contingent resources via an appraisal well In an untested fault block
Nexen Inc (TSX, NYSE: NXY), an independent, Canadian-based global energy company, has completed the evaluation of drilling success on the northeast fault block
of the Appomattox structure.
A decision was then made to side-track a new horizontal into an adjoining fault block
This is a new prospect discovery in a separate structural culmination developed in a fault block
North of the Kovilkallappal field in Thanjavur district," it said.
The Fuschia Prospect is a multi-fault block
prospect with a small four-way dip closure in the central fault block
defined on 3D seismic data.
ENI's K2 Field includes two subsea centers on Green Canyon Block 562 in water depths ranging from 3,900 to 4,300 feet: a two- to three-well cluster in the North Fault Block
area and a one- to two-well cluster in the South Fault Block
The well was drilled to extend the field and define the downdip limits of the reservoir in the south fault block
discovered by the No.
The MNA-17 (AP) well path was an appraisal/pilot well, appraising the 500 series sands and assessing a separate untested fault block
, the Manora West Structure, which had the potential to de-risk the Greater Manora West prospective resources.
Additionally, Shell (operator with a 75% interest) and Nexen, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited (25% interest), are following up the Vicksburg "A" well with a sidetrack well to test the Corinth prospect, a separate fault block
from the Vicksburg discovery.
